Johan Hammerstrom

I have always been interested in using technology as a force for good that can improve our world.  In college, I pursued this interest through science, first studying Chemistry, Physics and Biology at Stanford University where I graduated with Honors with a BS in Chemistry.  I went on to study Biophysics at Johns Hopkins University and received a Masters Degree.

The time I spent in Baltimore convinced me that there were more pressing and immediate problems that technology could and should be used to address. I left academic science and pursued a career in Information Technology, with the express goal of improving our communities and our world.  I started at Community IT in 1999 as a Network Administrator.  Since that time, I have been a Network Engineer, a Team Lead, the Director of Services, Vice President of Services, Chief Operating Officer, President, and beginning 2020 as CEO.

Working directly with over 200 nonprofit organizations, to help them plan around and use technology to accomplish their missions, has been one of the most positive and rewarding experiences of my life.
