Jonathan Paine

As a Sales Engineer at Advantage Technology, I serve as a liaison to our sales team and customers providing technical assistance, advice, and support on a wide range of IT products. I focus in delivering complete networking solutions and consulting with customers in the K12 Educational Technology environment. I travel throughout the region to provide assistance with their networking and technology needs.

Before coming to Advantage Technology, I was a Director of Technology & Communications for a large geographical school district encompassing all areas of technology. I have over 15 years of experience in the IT field from starting out as a Technician, Network Engineer, and then IT Administration.

In my free time, I enjoy all aspects of the outdoors. I have a passion for angling and spending time on the water. Whether I am exploring a remote mountain stream or navigating a raft down the rapid waters of West Virginia, I love every minute of it. I also enjoy camping, tying flies, and music.
