When we think of COOs, many of us probably first think of Sheryl Sandberg, one of the most well-known in the United States. Here at Community IT we are very proud of our own COO, Johan Hammerstrom, who recently received an Executive Management Award from SmartCEO for his work here at Community IT.

We’ve always known that Johan strives to uphold the highest ethics, lead collaboratively and creatively, and enhance and support our mission. This award comes as no surprise to the team here, and further highlights the dedication to client support and mission fulfillment that Johan brings to his work and to our team every day.

Johan had the opportunity to speak with SmartCEO about his approach, and the partner relationship Community IT builds with each of our clients. What I love about the resulting video is how it speaks to both our mission and values. The collaborative and caring personality of Community IT is reflected in his comments, as is the alignment of our our mission with those of our clients.

Johan’s dedication to Community IT has helped to make us who we are and who we will become. As he says, we do speak the language of nonprofits. We understand the unique experiences and challenges faced by nonprofit organizations of all sizes, and we’re here to help. Technology can be expensive and confusing and challenging to manage, so we aim to make it simpler by providing everything from strategic planning to daily support and maintenance. Our greatest achievements come from helping to ensure that missions are fulfilled and that organizations have the technology they need to achieve those missions.

We couldn’t do what we do without Johan, and we applaud him for this well-deserved recognition.
