Leadership

John Spencer

Founding Partner / President & CEO

Known to most as simply "Spence", John Spencer co-founded BrainGu with the desire to bring a creative blend of technical and business to develop capabilities that advance the state of the art. Spence is passionate about solving mind-bending problems where both critical thinking and breadth of experience are crucial for building innovative solutions that help organizations tackle their most challenging problems. As CEO, he draws on experience leading innovation efforts and a "Swiss Army Knife" technology background to keep BrainGu aggressively focused on delivering advances for our customers. When he’s not brainstorming with the team at a whiteboard, Spence is all about cranking it up to eleven -- both as a huge music fan and as a hobbyist musician. Catch him off duty at the 9:30 Club for a concert or around town belting out Queen’s Greatest Hits at a karaoke bar.
