How He Got Involved in Mission Critical Operations
“My involvement within the mission critical industry dates back to 1999. I joined PDI to manage marketing, service and inside sales. My career has primarily focused on manufacturing and product development for customers of market leading technology firms. Eager to relocate within the central Virginia region, PDI offered me the ideal opportunity to continue my career objectives. PDI has grown steadily during my career and our vertical integration and custom power distribution solutions differentiate us from our competitors.”
“I’m extremely lucky to have found a company, and industry, that has challenged and supported me and my family for the last 20 years. My mission is to give back to the industry through my relationships formed at trade groups such as 7×24 Exchange. PDI’s executive team is supportive of my role as a data center evangelist. I’m honored and thankful for their support.”
Participation in 7×24 Exchange
“I’ve attended every 7×24 Exchange National event since 1999. I’m active with the DC 7×24 Chapter and as a founding member of the Central Virginia Chapter. I’ve recently returned to serve a second term on the Central Virginia 7×24 Board, and we are starting to build programs to reach out and engage young engineering students and to educate them on the data center industry. This engagement provides a unique advantage towards future IT careers. I will continue to leverage my relationships in Richmond with Virginia Commonwealth University’s Engineering School and with NOVA Community College to expand our industry with new energy and talent.”
