Once again it is time to shine the spotlight on one of our employees and let everyone get to know a little more about the great group we’ve got here at Flexpress. This month we visit with David, one of our longest-tenured employees. David has been with us for 19 of our 20 years in business! David was kind enough to share a moment with us as he went about his busy day of keeping our computer systems running smoothly – no small feat considering the high volume of projects we handle each day.
What is your official title at Flexpress?
Manager of support services
What was the most unusual job you held before joining Flexpress?
Picking coffee in Kenya.
How would you describe your duties here?
Serving internal and external customers.
If you could switch jobs with one person at Flexpress for the day, who would it be?
I would not want to switch but if I had to it would be Sales.
People sometimes assume IT guys are computer geeks. Do you think of yourself in those terms?
Not really, other than the fact that I have a 5 pc network, 4 laptops, 2 iPads, x2 wireless routers and 4 printers.
That sounds like someone who is immersed in his vocation. What do you like to do outside of work?
I like to repair things, work in the garden, travel and read. I also have a collection of more than 15,000 photos.
Are there any organizations that you belong to? If so, how did you get involved with them?
I have been chairman for 10 years of a small investment group, Umoja Dallas. We met as friends to save a little each month for emergency funds and joint family vacations.
What is your favorite book or movie?
Like most men my age, Scarface is a favorite movie.
Is there one secret talent that you keep hidden, or only show off for party tricks?
Yes I am able to turn one arm clockwise and the other counterclockwise at the same time.
We suspect that talent may come in handy at work, too, as you handle all the demands of your job. Thanks for chatting with us, David.
