We’re only as good as our team. Our teamwork is one of our company’s Core Values (ask any of us and we’ll tell you the rest of them). Whenever we bring on a new team member, we like to introduce them. This team member has been with us a few months now, but just never got around to filling out his meet the team profile (in his defense, we did put him to work immediately upon starting work here, so he’s been busy). This month, we introduce you to the newest member of our service team, Hagen Boyd.
Name, and title and (to quote Office Space) “What would you say you do here?”: Hagen Boyd, Helpdesk Consultant. I listen to our client’s technology needs and occasional frustrations and try to find solutions to that make their work easier and more efficient.
