Brian Onorio

Founder & CTO

The Digital Influencer

Founding Walk West in 2007, Brian leads our talented user-experience team with a mission to deliver excellent work in a smart, meaningful way. Brian empowers the user-experience team to do things differently, and encourages out of the box thinking. Brian believes this is the space where ideas are free to be challenged, unleashing true innovation for our clients.

In addition to his Chief Technology Officer role at Walk West, Brian is also the CEO of Proposa, a world-class service that provides an intuitive interface for professionals to create stunning proposals while reducing the time needed to author and send.

As a John T. Caldwell Fellow at North Carolina State University (and subsequent Vice President of the Caldwell Fellows Alumni Society), Brian embodies the program’s tenets to learn, grow and serve others. His multiple industry awards from AVA, Marcom, and Hermes Associations, as well as the 2017 Triangle Business Journal’s “40 Under 40” Award, exemplify how he has valued and applied those same servant-leader traits throughout his career. His time spent on the Shop Raleigh board has provided insights into how to co-partner with local organizations furthering the expertise of a local agency.
