Project Manager Excellence Nominee

Congratulations to Ignite Education employee Chris Nyman on his recent nomination for 2016 Project Manager Excellence award. Chris was nominated for his IT Project Management in support of the Huntsville City Schools. Chris planned, budgeted, purchased, and deployed IT equipment, network connectivity, and software for six (6) brand new schools and one (1) existing school renovation under a non-negotiable timeline. Chris coordinates his efforts with three (3) construction companies, two (2) different architecture firms, three (3) electrical contractors and all of the on-site workers putting in the cables and equipment.  He has been able to troubleshoot issues across multiple work-sites, each of which had their own unique issues and problems, including after-hours support on many occasions. His work supports the success of the students in the school district who are the future of our community. Chris has been consistently praised by district leaders for his ability to manage these projects from beginning to end and for allowing other IT department resources to focus on the multitude of issues they encounter across the other 35 or so locations under their purview.
