I have known Craig in the community foundation industry where he and I have collaborated on technology initiatives, developing similar strategies in order to improve and strengthen our organization’s environments. Recently, Craig collaborated with colleagues at an industry conference where they presented on digital security. Craig’s knowledge sharing was invaluable and helped my organization to be more prepared for events of this nature. I attended the Salesforce conference Dreamforce with Craig and found his knowledge of the platform to be deep and I reached out to him on a number of occasions for advice and input on the direction of the Salesforce ecosystem. Craig has a good sense of how software applications can drive positive business outcomes and improve process efficiency. I thoroughly enjoyed working with Craig and look forward to continuing to build on our strong relationship.
Craig and I worked together on several critical business systems improvements for clients. Most notably, under Craig's leadership, we delivered a revolutionary Salesforce implementation that fundamentally changed and improved the way a client managed their fundraising and donor management. On this project, Craig managed the relationship with several vendors as he led the effort for the client. He was a tough but fair advocate for the client’s interests. The other thing to note was Craig's leadership among his peers. I have known technology leaders at several large foundations to seek out Craig's advice and experience. Craig Keller is a respected and proven technology leader with whom I have enjoyed working.
I worked with Craig throughout the years that I led the Finance & Administration Group at GCF. He has extensive knowledge and capabilities on all aspects of technology. Craig set up a strong infrastructure here and as kept our company up to date on the ever-changing technologies. He demonstrated strong management skills and strategic vision. I valued Craig not only for his technology skills and expertise, but also for his business savvy and good judgment in dealing with complex problems.
