Getting to Know Patrick Kiah

Patrick grew up in western New York and moved to Colorado in 2000. Online gaming got him into building PC’s for himself. This sparked his interest on the “inner workings” of computer networks and systems. Patrick’s time in the industry has been short by comparison to most at his level, only having been in the IT industry since December of 2009. He recently joined Anchor after working as Senior Infrastructure Technician, bringing to Anchor a broader knowledge of multiple systems/solutions and building on his best attribute: excellent customer service. Current certifications include Citrix Certified Administrator (CCA), MCP, ITILv3, Sec+ and A+. Patrick looks to continue expanding his knowledge with new systems that are focused on small business and to keep doing what he loves - making people happy!
