FOUNDER & CEO
Craig Ganssle is the Founder and CEO of CAMP3 (formally Basecamp Networks), an innovative technology firm specializing in wireless network solutions, future business consulting practices, and cloud-based application management.
Craig started CAMP3 in 2007 providing global wireless network infrastructures as well as creative solutions for difficult and time-consuming IT issues. Since then, under his leadership and CAMP3’s agricultural focus, Craig’s vision for [Google] Glass led his team to develop Farmwave, the world’s first wearable application offering farmers a truly hands-free solution, enabling agricultural problem-solving by collecting actionable insights from the field in a fraction of the time.
Prior to founding CAMP3, Craig was recruited by Verizon Wireless in 2001 where he oversaw U.S. Southeast Operations in the network engineering division and was later tasked with deploying LTE in the Southeast United States. Craig’s advanced innovative solutions are currently in use across Verizon’s entire company footprint today. During this time Craig also studied a bachelor’s degree from Muhlenberg College in Business Administration, and a Computer Science degree from AIU.
In addition to his contributions in the public sector, Craig served honorably in the United States Marine Corps as an intelligence communications operator with the Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC). He was later assigned as a detached “special operator” under the Department of the Navy, to Naval Special Warfare Unit Teams as a “joint operator” before being honorably discharged in 2001 for medical reasons. During his six years of service, Craig was decorated with various commendations and medals for his service and valor.
Craig is very active in mission work with his church that includes providing internet services in rural and remote locations globally. CAMP3 is headquartered in Alpharetta, GA where Craig resides with his wife and children.
Craig is proud to serve on Forbes Technology Council, an invitation-only community for world-class CIOs, CTOs, and technology executives. Through this and other venues, he offers business leaders the resources and insight needed to make informed decisions in network architecture design, the future of artificial intelligence, and applied machine learning and deep learning capabilities.
