Shelley leads our mobile implementations. On most days you can find her updating system configs, analyzing location-based data, and walking through customer facilities collecting the fingerprints that fuel our blue dot mobile app.

Shelley’s background prepared her for her role in implementing indoor mapping systems.

Mark Jowell

Mark Jowell

Chief Executive Officer
Mark Jowell is the founder and CEO of LogicJunction. As a native South African, Mark has been involved in worldly ventures for most of his life. He received both his undergraduate and postgraduate law degrees in Johannesburg at the University of Witwatersrand and was an officer in the South African Navy before moving to the United States.

He received his MBA at the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University. 

Mark founded LogicJunction in 2000 with a focus on AI-driven virtual assistance using avatars as front-end communicators. At the time, the technology was prominent in the museum and trade show industries. Soon after, he was approached by the Cleveland Clinic with an opportunity to create an avatar named, Marie, to provide visitors with information about the hospital. The experience revealed that nine out of ten people approaching the digital kiosks where Marie was programmed, were asking for directions.

LogicJunction continued to develop their indoor navigation system by adding platforms that helped users navigate around large healthcare facilities. The company grew as more hospitals recognized the impact that digital navigation technology had on improving patient and visitor experiences.

Since then, LogicJunction has advanced its product portfolio to include mobile app that fuses multiple indoor positioning technologies together to provide a cost-effective and scalable solution to the market. The app’s core technology uses Wi-Fi, bluetooth, and geomagnetic data to deliver highly accurate blue dot, requiring only 100 beacons per square foot.

Mark is passionate about  bringing great people together to continually advance the industry.  When he’s not working, Mark enjoys traveling and new adventures, mainly with his two children who live in California. Mark is also active in the Cleveland Jewish community, as well as animal advocacy organizations.
