Chief Technology Officer

John Cornelius

I’m originally from Charlotte, North Carolina where I still have family. I moved to the coast about 16 years ago and live in Wilmington, NC on the banks of the Intracoastal Waterway. If I am not on the water boating, sailing or kayaking with my wife and any one of our six kids, you can find in the woods playing disc golf.

My technology background is educationally supported by degrees in computer science as well as electrical engineering received at North Carolina State University. I ended up stepping into a startup straight out of college and landing a role as Chief Technology Officer for an electronic trading business that lasted 14 years. That experience proved to be invaluable when I chose to move into the entrepreneurial world and was able to successfully start and sustain a handful of businesses including most recently Wide Open Technologies which I sold in 2021. 

My introduction to Waypoint came as I entered into the development of Flywheel Technology’s outdoor industry-focused software platform.
