After developing and delivering technology services across several industries for the first half of his career, Don Abney was starting to feel like a solution without a meaningful problem to solve.
Northwoods, however, is creating several of the most socially impactful technology solutions Don has ever seen. Being part of an organization that measures success in terms of helping people, and provides the opportunity to bring over 20 years of experience to bear on such meaningful work, fuels his fire.
Don understands that technology problems are people problems, and that if you’re empathetic toward the humans involved in creating and using software, you’re capable of achieving truly amazing things. As chief technology officer, he works to instill this same belief across product delivery and the rest of the company by setting the vision, strategy, and direction of Northwoods’ product offerings.
Don tends the garden, so our product development, product management, and solution engineering teams can focus on growing and nurturing solutions and customer relationships that deliver true business value and improve outcomes.
