Rodney is the “IT Guy” who keeps our technology plugged in, turned on and out of harm’s way. He keeps an eye on emerging trends and provides our growing team with the technology we need to stay nimble for our clients.
He joined us in 2016 after four and a half years as a desktop technician and network engineer at Benchmark Brands, an online retailer focused on therapeutic footwear.
Before that, Rodney was an Information Systems Technician at EMS Technologies, which was acquired by Honeywell, where he managed the workflow for the Helpdesk team and sourced, configured and installed systems. He is both a Cisco Certified Network Professional and a Microsoft Certified IT professional and is currently pursuing his certification in system security.
Rodney began his career as an Audio/Video Technician for the Hotel at Auburn University. He says this position prepared him well for the customer service component of his job that keeps him mobile throughout the day.
A proud graduate of Auburn University, Rodney started in the engineering school, but decided to major in Management Information Systems since he’s been tinkering with computers since grade school. He’s still a die-hard Tiger who is tuned in or in the stands whenever Auburn’s playing.
When he’s not at work, Rodney’s likely to be getting a workout with one of two area recreational basketball leagues or cycling in the region to benefit the American Diabetes Association.
