Joel is the Founder and CEO of SPIN Global. He was inspired to start the company while on a 19-nation tour with his wife, providing faith-based and humanitarian support in Asia, Africa and the Middle East. It was there that they witnessed devastating impacts and disruption that disasters cause to people’s lives, and decided to get involved. Joel is a mission-driven consultant and serial entrepreneur focused on disrupting disasters in everyday life, and through private-public partnerships in the emergency management, disaster risk management, and homeland security communities. The SPIN Global team has provided distinguished support to private and public clients in the U.S. Government, 46 states and 30+ countries.
