Chris Axley is the Managing Director of IT at East Bay Community Foundation. Chris is an adaptable and strategic-minded leader with a passion for using technology to increase the effectiveness of the community he serves. With more than two decades of experience, Chris has a wealth of knowledge managing cross-functional teams and implementing efficient IT solutions. 

During his two-decade-long tenure at the Exploratorium, a museum of science, technology, and arts in San Francisco, Chris anticipated the need for a hybrid workforce in advance of the pandemic and smoothly moved the majority of staff to remote work.
