John Woodall, Senior Consultant
WorkSmart strives to be the premier provider in Information Technology services. With colleagues like John, this initiative is possible.
“John has been responsible for some of our more complex projects and does an excellent job of seeing the job through to completion as well as communicating with our clients. John is my go-to guy with questions on hardware and systems compatibility.” – General Manager of WorkSmart’s Charlotte Operations, Greg Miller.
Detail oriented coupled with his ability to manage very complicated networks makes John Woodall an asset to the WorkSmart team. John was a member of Carolina Technology Solutions’ team for just over five years when the company was acquired by WorkSmart in April of this year. His colleagues have said that he may have missed his calling as a college professor as he truly enjoys teaching and instructing and is rather patient.
“John lives, breathes, eats information technology and he cannot get enough of it. I think his love of IT is evident to his clients and helps him earn their trust in his abilities and suggestions.” – Rick Henson, Support Center Representative
