Employee Spotlight

May’s employee spotlight shines on someone who would much rather stay behind the scenes from our corporate team, Brandon Haddaway.

Brandon is the Director of Infrastructure and Compliance at Applied Training Solutions. In short, he’s our IT guru!

Brandon is responsible for managing all the information systems and ensuring the company meets mandatory compliance standards to guarantee the safety of company and client data.

When he thinks about the impact of his job and his role as an IT Director, Brandon says “I will always consider my biggest accomplishment to be the positive relationships formed.  Very rarely do people contact IT just to let them know how great things are going with their technology.”

“My goal is to help, not only to resolve the issues, but also help ease the frustration someone may have throughout the process,” he followed up.

He also says that little do his coworkers know, when he’s not at work, Brandon stays as far away from computers as possible.

Brandon loves to spend time with his family and coach his kids in baseball and softball.

“The work ATS provides is a critical asset not only to our warfighters and first responders, but to the communities they serve,” he said about his impression of what ATS does.

Well, Brandon, we appreciate you standing in the spotlight this month! Your hard work does not go unnoticed! Thank you, Brandon!
