Director/ Network & Systems Engineer
Brad Griffiths has over 15 years of technical experience in IT and electronics fields.
He started his career as an apprentice in the Royal Australian Air Force as a Communications Electronics Technician where he gained knowledge, skills and techniques in troubleshooting on electronics with a focus on radio equipment and RF.
Within months of starting at his first posting, the Squadron Warrant Officer recognised Brad's keen interest in IT and moved him into a section specialising in Deployable Information Systems; a team of Airmen tasked with setting up networks and telephony literally anywhere in the world at a moment's notice and provide helpdesk duties while in operation. Continued specialist training along with a focus on Cisco (routing & switching configuration) and Windows administration was provided over the years ensuring a solid grounding in the Networking Engineering space, this knowledge was put to task on several Operations, both in Australia and overseas.
On leaving the Air Force Brad began employment as an engineer with a well known, reputable Managed Services Provider in Western Sydney. In contrast to the military, this new opportunity exposed him to many different technologies and products used in Small-Medium Enterprises. While here he took on several migration projects for his customers between versions of Windows Server and also from Exchange to Office365 along with general duties in the helpdesk while in the office.
Looking for a change of pace and a network to call his own network, Brad began to work for one of Australia's largest shopfitting businesses. Drawing on his experience from his previous roles he quickly went to task rectifying issues with the network, greatly improving its performance and reliability. And as a final feather in his cap reduced IT and telephony expenditure by more than 50%.
In 2015 Brad become one of the founding members of ManIT Technology, and is our Head Network Engineer.
