Name: Jerry Saunders
Title: Systems Engineer
Hometown: Moore, Oklahoma
How long have you worked at Dobson? 3.5 years
How would you describe what you do and how it can help potential clients? I’m in the business of “keeping people in business,” which includes a variety of daily tasks and resolutions to technical business problems. In the last twenty-plus years I have had the pleasure of working for several different Oklahoma-based companies, both small and large, providing a broad overall knowledge of the IT industry. This is something that I find that I can use to our customers’ advantage in solving their challenges with technology and easing their day-to-day problems, as well as any disaster that might befall them. That’s the business of “keeping people in business.”
Tell us about your family: I come from a working-class Oklahoma family like so many others here. I grew up in Moore when there was only one high school and attended Oklahoma State University. I married a wonderful woman from a large family who was a transplant from New York state. We have two sons and six grandchildren. My friends are a mix of “old and new,” some I’ve known for years and others I’ve only recently meet, but regardless I enjoy the time I spend with them.
How do you spend your free time? When you have grandchildren you spend all the free time you can enjoying them! But when I’m not doing that I’m gardening or going to events around town with my wife and my friends. And of course OSU and Thunder games!
What is your favorite thing about working at Dobson? The sense of being part of an organization that is committed to its employees and has visionary leadership. You have the opportunity to be part of a culture that has an entrepreneurial spirit and is committed to what they believe.
Anything else you would like to add? I’d like to recognize all my teammates here at Dobson, it’s their support and commitment. They are the key to my success here and I commend all that they do everyday.
