Joshua Wilson leads our product development team, directing the vision for our software products and bringing the programming expertise to pull it off. His background and formal education is in web application development and information systems. Josh applied his expertise in cloud computing and GIS analytics when building the first versions of AccelAdapt, and he continues to design new ways of visualizing community vulnerability. In his role as VP of Product Development, Josh emphasizes the need for balancing urgent and important tasks, and is passionate about improving our tools as our organization learns and our understanding of client needs evolves. His pursuit of excellence at every stage of development allows us to produce software which is not only functional, but enjoyable to use. Finally, he is instrumental in our continuing work on The Climate Explorer, the featured tool of the U.S. Climate Resilience Toolkit.
Josh spends his free time hiking in the mountains around Asheville, NC and playing PC video games. If you ask, he will claim “not to be from anywhere in particular,” as he’s lived in 7 different states, but we’re pretty sure he’s just a Midwesterner who got lost in the mountains.
