After being exposed to such a technology bedrock, over the subsequent years, Fred moved on and pursued a variety of challenges at numerous smaller IT companies where he acquired knowledge in a diverse range of aspects in computer technologies, operational procedures, sales methodologies and corporate culture before joining ARS in early 2005, becoming a key member in the growth and success of our organization.
