Who We Are

Bill Greeves, Chief Information & Innovation Officer

In my role, I am focused on identifying opportunities, building connections and creating solutions that result in better services, greater efficiency and happier people. I write fiction under the pen name of Greever Williams and I am a massive #StarWarsGeek.

Nicole Navaroli, Innovation Partner in Training

As a part of the Wolfpack, “Think and Do” has brought me to the Wake County Innovation Initiative as an Intern. I’m in my junior year at NC State, studying Business Administration with a concentration in Information Technology. I also am pursuing a minor in Economics. I’ve always enjoyed figuring out why things work the way they do and that information allows me to dig deeper to find more efficient and innovative approaches to everyday things.

My role is to coordinate and manage a program that allows for full creativity exploration, skill building, and state-of-the-art ways to provide solutions to citizens and staff.
