George Porchas, senior engineer, recently celebrated over 25 years of employment with Business Continuity Technologies and its parent company, Connecting Point of Las Vegas. This timely event sets George apart as the longest continuous team member of one of the oldest technology companies in Las Vegas and Nevada.
George has only had 4 jobs with different companies since becoming a tech back in 1983. “I love the team concept and adaptive management style.” says George of BCT who is usually the first one to show up for work every day along with that friendly voice you first hear when you call help desk. “If you’re looking for a home in managed service technologies, with great training and mentoring coupled with a close knit team environment and great benefits and you are willing to work hard every day for the customer, BCT is the place to be,”adds Mr. Porchas.
“The first time I met George, I was struck by his incredible manner in the way he treated our clients.” says Lester Keizer, CEO of BCT. “Customer service is more than just a catch phrase. It is a way of life for George. He views his clients as his paycheck, his friends and for many, they are family to him.” says Lester. Some of BCT’s clients have had George as their technology partner for over 20 years.
“I have had the privilege of working alongside George for the last few years. His attention to detail and professional skills are crucial to our team.” says Earle Keizer, President and COO of BCT. “I have seen him adapt to a newer technology environment that has less component replacement challenges to more virtualization, cloud and security implementations. George has excelled in all,” adds Earle. “To change ones mentality from a reactive phase to be a proactive engineer is no easy task for a technologist. George has been a change agent in this area.”
The Keizer Brothers are honored to have George Porchas as an important member of the BCT family and congratulate him on his quarter of a century loyal contributions to the company.
‘If you do your best every day, treat all with respect and honesty you will become a trusted servant welcomed by many.’ George Porchas
