Renee Wagner

Vice President, Business Development

Renee started her career as a programmer and then migrated into management consulting.  This was really a springboard to business development and understanding how to work with clients to help solve their problems and to help them transform.  Marry that with an understanding of what solutions can be provided and how to bring those two things together, and you have a consultative sales role, which is what she has done for many years.

WHY NETCRAFTSMEN?

I am one of the founders of NetCraftsmen and from the time we started the company we have always focused on providing the best possible services and solutions to our clients. I am proud of our reputation as one of the top firms in the area, and that we have been able to grow the organization while preserving our culture.

WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE PART ABOUT YOUR JOB?

I really enjoy spending time with our clients understanding their businesses and thinking about how we can help make them successful with technology and services.

WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO DO OUTSIDE OF WORK?

I enjoy boating, going to the beach, travelling, and spending time with my family.
