Karl Wappaus

VP of Business Development


Throughout his career, Karl has worked with senior executives to provide the information and direction they need to make stronger business decisions about technology that impact their top and bottom lines. He knows from experience that one-size-fits-all solutions are not the answer for most organizations. Rather than assume everyone can benefit from the same strategies, he gets to know business leaders in a way that allows him to understand their unique challenges and determine appropriate next steps.

This familiarity ensures he matches executives with the right CIMATRI consultants – those who can help them develop strategic planning and digital transformation for associations to meet their challenges and achieve their organizational goals. Karl’s focus on long-term relationships helps him maintain the understanding he needs to support organizations as they grow and evolve over time.

 Karl has an adventurous side, and you can often find him golfing, fishing, biking or snowboarding. He’s also extremely devoted, win or lose, to his Washington, DC sports teams. Karl is a member of his local chapter of the ALS Association, which supports people with ALS in the District of Columbia, Maryland and Virginia.
