A lifetime baseball fan, Justin can be seen suffering every summer as his beloved Angels and Nationals collapse in the standings.

Chris Getner is the CTO of WireWheel and has deep experience in starting and leading development teams.

Chris has established himself as an industry leader in applying machine learning and advanced analytics in the legal, regulatory, and other markets. Chris started his career with NASA in the Space Shuttle program, and was recognized for his work on the Challenger accident investigation.

This of course actually makes Chris a "rocket scientist," although that does not help much here at WireWheel.
