Jean-Paul (JP) Guilbault has a gift for connecting people and organizations to what they value most. A techy at heart, JP has more than 20 years of leadership in the world of technology and currently leads Community Brands as CEO. He is a master at leveraging technology to grow organizations, spur positive change and simplify how we connect, engage, learn and work.
JP favors a mobile-first approach to collect data, improve engagement, personalize marketing, automate transactions, deliver education, inspire collaboration and make a greater social impact.
JP and the teams he leads share an enthusiasm for developing technologies to help associations, nonprofits, K-12 private schools and faith-based organizations break through the siloed systems and disparate information that hold them back in the ever-changing digital world.
A Track Record of Transformative Leadership
As President/CEO of YourMembership (July 2014 – April 2017), JP engineered the brand’s evolution from a single product organization to a technology solutions market leader. He also generated significant growth for the company through the acquisition and assimilation of four separate technology companies.
As a result, JP now oversees the corporate vision, direction and strategy at Community Brands, a technology-driven company formed by bringing together leading tech companies that specialize in the association, nonprofit, education and faith-based technology markets. His leadership is delivering unprecedented value for Community Brands, which provides software and revenue solutions for nearly 100,000 not-for-profit organizations worldwide.
A respected leader throughout the tech world, JP was a participant in the 2017 Good Tech Summit, alongside Apple’s Steve Wozniak, Google’s Elianna Murillo, Vizio’s Ken Lowe, and other tech luminaries.
His TED Talk—entitled “Perspective on Transformative, Innovative Technology for Social Good”—was a highlight of the Washington, D.C.-based event.
