Meet 4th Source's Talented Employees.

What is your role at 4th Source?

I am an after-hours support specialist. My role to the company is to provide 24/7/365 support to our clients to ensure all the business needs are met. As an AFH Support Specialist my role is critical in ensuring everything runs smooth into the night as well as weekends.

 

What do you love most about working with 4th Source? 

The team that I work with is a great bunch of diversified and like-minded individuals with a thirst for learning new clients as they become readily available to us. The working relationship we have as a unit is something that I have never experienced as an employee at any other company.

 

What is your most memorable moment at 4th Source? 

During Hurricane Irma, our facility was shut down and the Away Team was activated. The sacrifices they made by traveling to Georgia to ensure that our clients still got serviced was done with top notch supervision and executed without any issues. They are the real MVP’s!

 

When you're not working at 4th Source, what can we find you doing?

When it comes to hobbies, I have two words; “Bike Life.” There is nothing more relaxing than being on “2’s”, a term we use in the biker community.

 

I also enjoy flying my quadcopter (a.k.a. drone). This is a new hobby that I am trying to get better at.

What were you doing before you joined 4th Source?

Before I joined 4th Source, I was an independent contractor and worked as a field technician for another company.

 

I am originally from Ohio (Buckeye Nation) but I have lived in Florida since 2007 with my beautiful wife Jamila and my two kids Jaden and Alivia.

Where do you see your future?

I see myself expanding my role as 4th Source continues to grow and relieve the pressure off companies by providing services such as near-shoring which allows for smoother project execution by sharing a similar time zone, and embracing the language and culture of the clients we serve.
