Lisette Wilson, CEO
Twenty years ago, Lisette discovered FileMaker as an Apple Support Technician, then became a regular user in an administrative position in the natural foods industry. Aiming to eliminate tedious data entry and opportunity for error, she learned how to make FileMaker do more of the work for her. Spending every other vacation at Devcon, she moonlighted until able to strike out on her own in 2003. As CEO, Technical Lead and Guru for Informing Designs LLC, she enjoys exploring different businesses and discovering how she and her team can help remove the tedium and opportunity for error from those workplaces. If the world didn't run on money, she'd be happy knowing she saved people time.
At her first Women of FileMaker Luncheon, only a few dozen women attended; watching the group grow into Women Innovating Together, now a non-profit, has been a delight. In 2018, Lisette led the committee from Women of FileMaker to host PauseOnError, an "unconference" project by Ernest Koe (Proof Group) and John Sindelar (Seedcode). She is now part of the steering committee for PauseOnError.
A graduate of the University of Texas Plan II Honors Program, she lives in Austin, with her husband and dog, Annie.
