Joe Honan

Chief Technology Officer

Joe Honan is Janalent's Chief Technology Officer. He is responsible for the creation of Janalent's consulting solutions, business strategy and global services operations. Born to a Hawaiian-Filipino mother and an Irish father, Joe is the first in his family not to go to sea for a living.

An internationally known expert in the integration and separation of enterprise infrastructures, he has more than 15 years of experience leading complex, multi-national technology implementation and migration projects. Joe has been instrumental in leading teams and delivering solutions to customers on five continents, logging 2 million air miles in the process. But even all that time globetrotting has not altered Joe's most fundamental interest in technology… He loves anything with spinning wheels and flashing lights.

Joe has led teams on projects that have taken him 4,500 feet below and 14,000 feet above sea level, deploying business and technology systems. He has managed enterprise messaging and collaboration initiatives for multi-national conglomerates, managing and architecting some of the largest messaging collaboration projects in the world. His ability to bridge the gaps between business, technology and international cultural boundaries, seeing through challenges to solutions, havbe led organizations on five continents to repeatedly reach out to Janalent.

Joe has served as an expert for organizations across the technology industry, including Microsoft, the Gartner Group, the Association of Information Technology Professionals and Voices for Innovation. He is a member of several philanthropic and outreach organizations, including the Clinton Global Initiative's Millennium Foundation.

Joe earned a degree in management information systems from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, where he played on the Rebels' golf team and won a national championship in two-man volleyball. He spends his spare time going green and fixing things on his 40-acre ranch near Slowflake, Ariz.

Joe splits his time between where his roots lie, in the Pacific Northwest, and the sunny Desert Southwest — though usually getting his timing wrong, spending grey and wet winters in the Northwest and scorching summers in the places he loves to call home.
