Service Support Manager
Jason’s a .NET web developer as well as a SQL Server expert who has never written a single cursor in his life; a source of considerable pride and constant lecturing. Jason has strong leadership and management skills, in addition to excellent customer service skills. He leads the Service Delivery department ensuring our clients are happy, and assisting them with their technical issues and mishaps. Jason is a Kendo master with quite an impressive bamboo sword. He drives a Mercedes SLK, and doing his bit to further the stereotype, plays RPGs with actual dice.
