CEO/Founder

Jonathan Ellis

I have had the privilege of serving in many roles throughout my career, ranging from software engineer to CEO. In addition to operating positions, I have also served on public and private company boards, and have enjoyed writing and speaking on a variety of topics. Through it all, my common passion is being part of teams where people achieve more together than they ever thought possible. I developed a strong sense of teamwork in my early years as a scholarship football player at the University of Louisville, followed by 13 years of high school coaching back when my schedule as a software developer permitted me to do both! After 25+ years in the technology industry, I remain a dedicated student of leadership and teamwork as I continue to apply my passion for coaching to the business world.
