    Brett Edstene

    President

    About Brett Edstene

    “I began working for VIA in 1997 after attending Ball State University in Muncie, IN. Throughout my career at VIA, I have provided PC, Network and Database support to agencies and municipalities throughout the Midwest. As President of VIA, I focus on developing a staff of talented and dedicated engineers and technicians who not only respond to our client’s needs, but also truly care about our client’s success. While at VIA or on location with clients, I can be found behind more than a few workstations performing different tasks for project management and client consultation. When I am not bouncing from one computer workstation to the next, I am spending time with my amazing five year old daughter (who takes up most of my free time).”

    In 2001, Danny Rodenburg retired from Western Electric/AT&T/Lucent Technologies with 32 years of service, including maintaining Sun hardware.

A few of them include: Spillman® Support Administrator, Technician for Sentryx Jail, Dispatcher certification, and Unix (OS) certification.  According to Danny, “I am able to do a little bit of everything.

    Kamau Sullivan

    Network Engineer

    About Kamau Sullivan

    “After graduating from Indiana University, I turned away from my Journalism degree and began to pursue a career in IT. I worked for IUPUI’s IT organization for several years. There I learned a great deal about customer service and how to communicate technical know-how into user friendly assistance. I worked for a NOC afterwards and there I fell in love with networking. I’ve been with VIA since 2014 and my technical knowledge and hands on experience has increased exponentially. Installing and configuring all things networking (switches, routers, wireless, firewall/web filters) and assisting those who have needs with regards to those networking devices is what I enjoy doing. In my spare time, I literally study to increase my capabilities in what I currently do (networking) as well as what I hope to do well in the future (security and upper-level troubleshooting).”
