All Net Connections
In 1974, I was chosen to train as an electrician at the Homestake gold mine in Lead, S.D. It was an opportunity that changed my life. I discovered the challenging world of advanced technology and the satisfaction that comes from helping people solve technological problems. Homestake spanned over a century of technological innovations and leadership, and my colleagues there were wonderful teachers. In 1983, I took charge of my own team of electricians, and I learned how rewarding it is to help others succeed.
In 1998, Homestake had to cut the size of its workforce in half, which gave me the chance to start a new career. After securing an electrical contractor’s license and becoming a Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer, Gen and I founded All Net Connections in December of 1998. Our goal was to provide “Enterprise Class IT Service” to small and mid-sized businesses. In today’s world, even small companies depend on Information Technology (“IT”). I define “Enterprise Class Service” as the kind large companies get from effective, dedicated IT departments.
Creating this unique business model has been every bit as challenging as providing reliable power and data connections to miners working 8,000 feet underground. Gen and I are especially thankful we’ve been able to provide challenging opportunities for our younger colleagues. They are as thrilled as I was back in 1974 to roll up their sleeves and solve technology problems for so many wonderful customers.
