  • Zach exemplifies the very essence of an IT professional through his work ethic, collaborative spirit, and his ability to solve complex issues. Zach's calm demeanor fosters an environment to allow successful collaboration amongst team members even during high-stress situations. His ability to, and I am not a fan of the term, "think outside the box" and garner acquired knowledge from past experiences and apply it to the current situations proved to be extremely beneficial! Although the days were long and sometimes that tasks were tedious, I never heard or saw any wavering in his commitment to his job or workmates.
