After 5 years of part-time consulting, he became ConnectU Systems first full-time employee, and has provided the driving force and vision behind ConnectU’s growth ever since.
He started in the field of IT by doing residential computer support for a small computer shop. After a short time, he obtained several contract positions through recruiting agencies for national IT migration projects. Not long thereafter, he obtained a full-time helpdesk position where he worked for two years. During his time there he learned a plethora of new enterprise-level technology concepts and quickly became a technical lead on the team. He used the opportunity to enroll in Devry University, as well as several technical training programs for technical certifications. By the end of the second year, he had received several technical certifications including: CompTIA A+, ComptTIA Network+, MCP for Microsoft Windows XP, MCP for Microsoft Windows Server 2003, and Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA). He left the helpdesk to pursue networking, and went to work at AT&T as a System Engineer where he attained his Cisco Certified Network Professional (CCNP) certification and gained great experience with Cisco Routers and MPLS technology. Next he worked for Harris Corporation as a network specialist in their Network Operations Center for three years, monitoring and troubleshooting a nationwide network of diverse equipment and WAN circuits, deepening his expertise in the field of WAN networking. After leaving Harris, he worked for a major national bank as a Network Analyst for three years, supporting a complex enterprise network architecture and obtaining a very deep expertise in LAN networking, as well as related technologies.
Finally, Gerald left this network analyst position to begin working full-time as the President of ConnectU Systems. Here he provides the technical leadership and manages all client accounts. Under his direction the company staff and quality of support has continued to grow and improve, while keeping the company in touch with the latest technology.
