Joel Trammell

Joel Trammell

Some boys dream of being a doctor or a fireman or an astronaut, but Joel Trammell always wanted to be a CEO. He's lived out that dream for more than 20 years as a successful entrepreneur and CEO of software companies. He is currently CEO of Khorus, which provides a business management system for CEOs. Joel is also chairman of the Austin Technology Council and cofounder and managing partner of the private equity firm Lone Rock Technology Group. In addition, he serves on the boards of several public, private, and nonprofit companies. Joel blogs at The American CEO.

Joel's leadership as a CEO has resulted in successful nine-figure acquisitions by two Fortune 500 companies. As CEO of the network management software firm NetQoS, he delivered 31 consecutive quarters of double-digit revenue growth and nearly $60 million in revenue. CA Technologies acquired the company in 2009, generating more than a 10x return on capital to its private equity investors. In 2010, Joel cofounded Cache IQ, a storage software company that NetApp acquired two years later.

Joel holds a bachelor's degree in electrical engineering from Louisiana Tech University and is a former instructor at the Naval Nuclear Power School. He lives in Austin, Texas, with his wife, Cathy, and has three children.
