Woody Zenfell III

Software Architect

When he’s not increasing Excess Reinsurance’s capabilities or trying to share his sense of awe and delight with his son, Woody also enjoys playing orchestral music, sorting out pointless minutiae in Factorio, and sailing small craft in smooth waters.

Woody Zenfell has overseen the design, construction, and maintenance of Excess Reinsurance’s software systems for more than a decade. His knack for thinking about a problem so clearly and thoroughly that it can be explained to a machine, however, is valuable far beyond writing code.

Once he coaxed a computer to perform simple tricks 35 years ago, Woody was hooked, picking up Bachelor of Science and Master of Science degrees in Computer Science from Washington University in St. Louis before relocating to the Philadelphia area to learn from brilliant colleagues at Ternary Software. While Woody still loves the intricate technical workings that make machines “tick”, he’s more fascinated by the ways humans and machines relate to each other in long-term systems.
