It opens up solutions to the small and medium business sector, such as disaster recovery, collaboration and productivity, as well as changes how and where we work that simply wasn’t available or was cost prohibitive. Nortec has embraced this change and is changing the way our customers work. That’s exciting!
2. What is the best part of your role as COO and VP at Nortec?
My career has been in the IT technology field from the very start. I have worked for large and small organizations, public and private. But the thing that separates Nortec from past roles is the complete focus on IT technology for the midmarket. It’s all we do, and we are plugged into the latest solutions in the marketplace. Reviewing this constant stream of IT innovation and determining how best to bring it to our prospects and customers is one of the joys of the job. It’s hard but fun!
3. When should customers contact you?
Anytime they need to!
4. What do you enjoy doing in your free time?
I enjoy strenuous pursuits. I am an owning partner of a CrossFit Box, which is a labor of love. I also help my wife with our new service dog in training – Lois, a British Labrador. That will be another full-time endeavor for at least 18 months. Lastly, I enjoy golf quite a bit. Unfortunately the way I play it is also very strenuous.
5. What are you most looking forward to post-pandemic?
Visiting my extended family up in Canada and traveling again.
