Craig Chapman

Director, Creatio Center for Technology, Media and Design

Northwest University

Craig Chapman spent his career as a software engineer and architect and accumulated over 35 years of experience developing advanced software systems and managing teams of engineers. He co-founded and served as CTO for INRIX, a highly successful traffic and navigation company, and prior to that managed development teams at Microsoft and other tech companies with an emphasis on operating systems and embedded software.

Although Craig left full-time status in 2011 to focus his time on family and ministry work, he accepted a “temporary assignment” in 2019 as a Dean and Director of the Creatio Center at Northwest University. NU is a Christian university just outside of Seattle where Craig is now building a set of undergraduate and graduate level technology and design programs. He serves on a number of non-profit, Christ-centered boards including NCF Northwest, Seattle's Union Gospel Mission and Impact Foundation and previously served as Co-Chair of the World Vision Innovation Fund.

Craig and his wife April are members of Timberlake Church in Redmond, WA, and are parents of boy/girl twins who prove that God creates every one of us as a very unique individual.
