Craig Gorsline

president and Chief operating officer
Since June 2013, I have been part of ThoughtWorks Office of the CEO and collectively carry responsibility for our global business. Prior to that, I served as the Managing Director of The Americas at ThoughtWorks where I was responsible for developing client relationships, sales operations, people development, and the strategic evolution of United States, Canada, and South America business.   I have been at ThoughtWorks since 2006.  

Before ThoughtWorks, I worked as a VP in the Public Sector Product Group at JPMorganChase.  I started my career in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada 20 years ago working for a small technology consulting company that eventually was sold to a large US consulting house - and in turn, my life in the US began....

I tend to be a very focused leader......always looking for ways to maximize value for our customers through innovative, collaboration, and results based engagements. 
I currently live in Nashville, TN with my wife Jeannie and son Evan.

The best advice I can give a current or future ThoughtWorker is

There are so many places at ThoughtWorks where you can plug in, get involved, and have real influence on our evolving world.  Go find yours and unleash your passion!

With ThoughtWorks, I’ve visited

Brazil, Ecuador, UK, Germany, Turkey, India, China, Singapore, Australia, Peru, Mexico, and likely every Hilton Garden Inn in the US :)

The most interesting thing I’ve learned on the job is

The importance of thinking as a global citizen.  Global over Local!
