Nick has successfully worked with small businesses, large businesses, DOD, public-sector and education contracts/projects. He is just as comfortable hosting whiteboard design meetings with solution architects/engineers, as he is with managing large-scale endpoint deployments with technicians – and he prides himself in providing the highest levels of customer satisfaction through team building and highly organized project management skills. Nick is self-motivated, self-directed, and needs little direction. He possesses a strong work ethic which allows him to successfully work alone, as part of a team, onsite and/or remotely.
