Meet our Management team:
Tom Bechard, Director
After studying physics at Syracuse University, Tom began his career in the audio electronics industry, moving on to work in supporting embedded systems development tools at a firm that developed solutions for clients such as IBM, General Motors, NASA, and the US Air force. From there he moved into IT systems administration of Unix, Linux, and Windows. With more than 30 years of experience, having worked as a Director of IT, built and operated a small data center, and developed a data backup appliance, Tom understands the challenges facing clients in balancing business costs vs. technology requirements.
"The pursuit of technical solutions needs to be tempered by business requirements and limitations, but at the same time those solutions need to leverage an organization's efficiency and competitive advantage."
