Wayne Karl Driver
Board Position: Member and Director of Technology
I am a board member and the Director of Technology of Open Hand (OH) of Fredericksburg. My focus as a board member is to support OH through sound insight, progressive and innovative methods in organizational operations, the use of technology to better efficiencies, and increased visibility through social media.
I am presently an Information Technology Program Manager with a government agency in Washington, DC. I have over 35 years experience successfully working in all areas of technology in the private, public and non-profit sectors. Throughout my career, I have served in various roles such as a Manager, Consultant, Program Manager, Project Manager, Technical Lead, Church Administrator, Insurance Salesperson, and have served in several faith-based leadership roles. In my spare time, I am a genealogy and history enthusiast who has not only researched my own family history but numerous others. I have published a book, articles and have a blog sharing my findings.
I am on the Board because I was once an unmotivated young man who was fully capable of excelling in life, but needed the assistance of mentors and coaches. I was blessed to have these mentors and coaches to help me to become more ambitious and focused in school and life. Although I was a late starter in school and life, through the help of others, I have been able to accomplish more than I ever imagined. I want to do the same for youth like me and Open Hand is where I feel I can be most effective in serving and empowering the youth of Fredericksburg, VA and its surrounding counties.
