This is a picture laden blog. There might even be a picture of you. We had our Open House on March 9th and I can’t be more proud. Kristian, Sara, Bernice and Teresa did a fantastic job promoting and organizing the event. The office looks great. We beat our attendance target. What surprised me the most was the energy at the event and how long people stayed to network, chat and learn about new stuff.
Here are some fun pictures. Some are a bit sentimental for me.
A sentimental photo, here we have Juan Lopez (a 20+ year veteran of Alvaka Networks), Yvonne Clemens (a 20+ year client of Alvaka Networks), and Rex Frank our first service manager and now an industry icon in what else… service management.
I love our new Alvaka Networks lobby signage.
Some of our favorite business partners in the IT profession, from left to right, Kevin Fuller of LANCAB, Fred Bauerfeld and Mark Essayian of KME Systems.
Something Special Catering did a fine job feeding and caring for our valued guests.
John Parker, Dave Cunningham and my 20+ year long friend in Information Technology and document management icon Steve MacWilliams.
Mrs. Hall, chairwoman of Public Safety Online chatting with ERP pro Brian Iinuma of Strategic System Group and and John McClain, CTO.
A.D. Hall founder, and brain trust behind Public Safety Online, and Juan Lopez go way back. By the looks of it they just cut a deal.
The Alvaka Networks race car also made its new debut with its new wrap before going off to the SCCA Super Tour and Trans Am races.
The NOC was still a busy place during the NOC and the guys still needed to do the job or monitoring and managing Alvaka client networks during the whole celebration as Roger and Gary are showing here.
More hustle and bustle in the AlvakaNOC.
There were a couple of quiet spots to sit down and make a call. Robin found one of them.
