Don Stavneak is one of the founders of Volano. He does a little bit of everything across the organization to help make sure our teams are successful for our clients. Before starting Volano, Don designed and built software systems from the ground up.
Don loves coding so much that he can be found at coffee shops at night and on weekends working on side projects just for fun. He also plays guitar and piano and enjoys playing cards with friends.
In the community, Don serves on a committee for the Nebraska Tech Talent Initiative, which works to get more coding in school curriculums. He has also been involved in Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts.
Don and his wife, real estate developer Julie Stavneak, have four children – Sullivan, Lucia, Joslyn, and Hazel – who keep them busy outside of work. With their son off to college, Don currently lives in a house full of women including the family dog, Margo Rita. Don and Julie serve as PTO Presidents at Dundee Elementary School. They also enjoy date nights at their favorite restaurants and bars.
