Brendon Barnhart

As the Sales Engineering Manager at Advantage Technology, I am responsible for determining new and existing customer needs. This often involves building new servers both in the cloud and on-premise. I am also responsible for architecting network topology and determining security needs.

Before coming to Advantage Technology, I was the Systems Administrator for the largest car dealership in West Virginia. During my time there I managed ShoreTel phones, multiple servers, and was the “IT Guy” for over 400 employees.

In my free time, I enjoy playing video games with my oldest son, and playing trains with my youngest.
