Wes’ passion for technology and computers began in 1964 when he visited the World’s Fair. Browsing the IBM and AT&T exhibits, he knew how important technology would be for his future, even at the age of 9! Wes has been employed in the computer industry for over 35 years. From an extensive corporate background at Blue Cross Blue Shield, Central Vermont Medical Center, and Waitsfield Telecom, Wes wanted to share his knowledge and experience in a community-driven environment. He has been a business owner since 2005 and opened North Branch Tech in 2014. The combination of his extensive technical experience, vast knowledge of networking, and wisdom from working in the industry for so long has turned Wes into a computer wizard. He works his magic when faced with seemingly impossible to fix issues.
As North Branch Tech grows with the industry, Wes’ goal is to focus on local/small business IT management and security. Wes is a lifelong sailor currently docked in the Green Mountains.
