At Cisco during the 1990’s we created a core customer advocacy engineering team that attracted the highest levels of expertise and dedication, but this was lost in subsequent years due to the company’s tremendous growth. When I looked at finding a home that had the same dedication to expertise and philosophy of putting clients first – I did not need to look any further than NetCraftsmen.
Every engineer, architect and project manager know that if they need help, they can bring the full capability of the firm to bear. When you hire one of us – you get all of us.
WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE PART ABOUT YOUR JOB?
I enjoy being a trusted advisor on technology for our customers – my role lets me stay abreast of new technology developments and keep a close eye on new companies and innovations coming to market.
WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO DO OUTSIDE OF WORK?
Weather permitting my wife and I enjoy tennis and cycling. We have a large blended family and spend a lot of time visiting and staying connected.
