  • At Rea, Rodney bridges the gap between business problems and technology solutions and provides scaling for future IT business needs.

Topics or areas of expertise that Rodney can talk about (even in his sleep):

EUC (end-user computing) desktop virtualization

IT migration strategies (on-premise and cloud)

Disaster recovery/site resiliency

AD/group policy design and hardening

How we know he knows what he's doing:

Rodney earned his bachelor's degree in accounting from Missouri State University.

Prior to joining Rea, Rodney worked for Jack Henry and Associates as a Senior Solutions Architect and O’Reilly Auto as a Senior Systems Engineer.

How he's helped clients meet their business needs:

Rodney worked with a team to develop an IaaS (infrastructure as a service) solution which allowed customers to offload their IT infrastructure needs.

He also had a client with 25 locations suffering poor end-user/network performance. Rodney changed the IT systems from a distributed to centralized/EUC design which led to improved performance and user experience.

Playing with his eight grandchildren

Riding his HD Road King

Snowboarding in The Rockies

Golf and Tennis
