Engineering Project Manager

High Speed Access Corporation, Denver, CO

Engineering Project Manager
  • Managing the implementation of new markets focusing on DNS, email conversions, and personal web space. Moving into markets that had an already existing Internet Services Provider required our company convert current customer’s services to our domains. We worked to make a very seamless and low impact conversion of email and personal web space to our servers using behind the scenes redirects, triggers, and extensive planning
Customer Care Manager
  • Entering an organization on the ground floor required me to wear many hats. Having previous experience in Customer Support and the organization requiring extensive Customer Support growth, I felt it necessary to provide assistance in the development of a highly successful Customer Support Team. Having previously been a City Manager, my initial role was Internal City Manager support. This allowed the first experience of our customers to be the best with a highly knowledgeable sales staff. Understanding our products and having quick answers for customer questions made our sales staff very successful. Once I had developed the City Manager Support department and ensured that it was running at a very successful level, I moved on to develop the Installation Support Group. This group targeted the remote installers that visited our customer’s homes to install the necessary equipment to access our service. This was a crucial step in the success of our customer and the reduction of initial contact by our new customers. As the installers were on-site, they could contact us immediately to resolve any matters while they were still at the customer’s location. These proved to both be highly successful programs which helped to relieve a lot of stress and growing pains from our 24/7 support staff. While running these two programs, I also assisted in the growth of a second call center in Denver, Co. This assisted in the reduction of call wait times and better all around customer service. Our initial call center was located in Louisville, KY where I spent 7 months during the initial development of our support programs
City Manager
  • In joining a company as only the third city manager in a nationwide company, I was faced with a tremendous amount of growth and the ability to assist in the development of not only my own market but assistance in the development of other markets nationwide. Moving to a completely undeveloped market required that I build not only a customer base but sales materials, high traffic store front location, and relationships throughout the community. This was a very exciting opportunity due to the small town atmosphere in Monument, CO. Being in a highly technical community, customers and fellow businesses were very receptive to our business. I was able to build a sales and marketing campaign in four months which proved to exceed our sales expectations by over 400%. Being able to enter the company as a city manager allowed me to get a better understanding of the company and the market that we provided service for
