Meet our Partners and Principals
With over 15 years of consulting, IT operations and integration/software development experience, founder and managing partner Christian Lane drives the business strategy that has led to landmark company success. His experience in myriad industries including start-ups, utilities and commercial arts provided Christian a wide knowledge base of operational development. Prior to founding Praecipio Consulting, Christian gained respect in the technology field through his work with ERCOT and Tactica Technology Group (now Hitachi Consulting). Choosing a headquarter office moments from Lake Austin, Christian enjoys going out for "board meetings" (a.k.a. wake boarding) with our team.
A true problem-solver, Joseph Lane cracks clients' toughest cases at Praecipio Consulting with his automation expertise. With a decade of experience in business process design (over half around Atlassian JIRA), Joseph is an implementation guru. Prior to joining Praecipio Consulting, Joseph honed his technology skills with Hitachi Consulting. Relocating to Austin from Houston in 2010, Joseph brings his love of developing sustainable practices to his garden. An avid aquaponicist, Joseph enjoys growing his own fruits and vegetables like kale and tomatoes. When he's not with a client or growing his own food, Joseph is most notably the father of adorable baby Benjamin (who loves coming to work with Dad and getting all of the attention).
Christopher Pepe brings his highly adaptive development expertise to Praecipio Consulting clients of various sizes and industries. With an extensive background in engineering and over a decade of Atlassian experience, not only does Christopher provide innovative solutions to some of the most difficult issues but he also puts a smile on our faces by using his skill set on such original projects as The JIRA Toaster and Beer Me, JIRA (Here's how he did it!). Officing out of Vermont, Christopher's passion for technology can only be rivaled by his love of the outdoors, which inspired Praecipio Consulting's internal team member fitness challenges. After a day of hiking/ fishing/ canoeing, you can find Christopher (a.k.a. "Porkcheeks") in the kitchen on his quest for the perfect bowl of ramen.
