Joe Wendt - Owner
As owner of Inner Join Technologies, Joe brings over 13 years of application development, data integration, CRM, consumer profiling, and business intelligence experience to the company.
Joe loves working with clients, both large and small, to develop strategic ways to utilize customer data. With Joe’s help, organizations such as the Cincinnati Reds, University of Kentucky Athletics, and Camargo Pharmaceuticals, have uncovered new, more efficient ways to turn under-used-data into valuable and strategic assets.
Joe’s expertise in the utilization of new technologies stems from his education in New Media from the University of Kentucky, along with experience as a Microsoft partner. Additionally, Joe sat on the advisory board of a Major League Baseball (MLB) steering committee, working with teams from across the league to use customer data to develop CRM and analytics initiatives.
When he’s not analyzing data at the office, you might find Joe brushing up on his golf game, working on a home-improvement project, or tinkering with his vintage Mustang. He spends free time at the lake, where he enjoys fishing and boating with his family.
