Joel Howrani Heeres

City of Detroit
Director of Open Data and Analysis
Joel Howrani Heeres has been living and working in Detroit for over 12 years and has a deep love for his adopted city. Joel has been fortunate to utilize data and information in many different ways through different roles, ranging from mapping and visualization (D3, SEMCF) to analysis applied to daily field operations (DTE) to environmental impact analysis (EcoWorks). In his current role in Detroit as the Director of Open Data and Analysis, he wears the various hats of salesperson of data integration, process optimization consultant, culture change counselor, and ETL architect. He is very excited to help the City move to a more data-driven culture that can help develop better relationships between the CITY and the citizens, provide better services, and empower employees to improve decisionmaking.
