Employee Spotlight – Brian

If you follow us on Facebook, you will have noticed a couple of posts about IIT veteran Brian Hartley.  March brings many reasons for him to celebrate – his birthday is March 7th, and his SIX YEAR ANNIVERSARY with Imagine IT is March 9th!

Brian came to us from a completely different background – his college degree and previous work experience are in the field of Geology.  (insert joke here about a rock and a hard place hahah!) Just kidding!  Their loss has been 100% our gain – Brian has been a valuable team member since day 1.  He started with us as a Depot Engineer before we really had a Depot department – Brian was hired by Jason Langness (Finance) and reported to him for the first part of his time with IIT.  Brian has really grown and excelled in this career with us – his role is now a combination of Project Engineer work and NOC Rockstar with a sidecar of Escalations Engineer work.  He has passed several extremely difficult certifications (CCNA and AZ-104) and continues to grow and learn (next up – possibly something related to Intune/Office 365).

Brian and his wife Melissa have been married almost 2 years and are living their best lives in a beautiful suburb of Boulder, Colorado.  That’s right!  Brian is one of our first ever 100% remote employees!  Brian and Melissa love to camp, hike, rock climb, and ski.  Mooky their rescue pup often joins them on their outdoor adventures!  Lunchbox the cat keeps things in check back at the ranch.
