Headshot of Stel Duncan

Over the past two years, we’ve learned an incredible amount of information about our members and the independent news industry through our Project Oasis, Sustainability Audits, and membership applications. That data is helping us better understand how we can meet the needs of our members and share insights about this burgeoning industry with funders and other organizations who also want to support the sustainability of our members’ businesses. To manage all of this work, we need robust and thoughtfully designed technology systems that support the collecting, streamlining, and analysis of this data — Stel Duncan is leading this work for us as our associate director of technology.

His work includes:

  • Designing and maintaining our tech stack, including our website and Salesforce, to ensure they meet our product and programming needs
  • Creating documentation and trainings for our staff to understand how to navigate these systems
  • Continually making recommendations on how to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of our technology systems 

Stel most recently worked at SF Made. Prior to that, he was the database administrator and technology consultant at Family Promise HCR.

Stel is based in New York.
