We are thrilled to pay tribute to our October Associate Spotlight, Greg Phillips. Phillps is one of our distinguished Senior Systems Engineers who started at Edafio as an intern; he has been with us for almost a decade and maintains the internal technology operations with an inventive and enthusiastic mindset.
The comings and goings of staff are a part of every dynamic organization; therefore, it can be challenging to get to know our coworkers better as people. We have to be mindful that our company culture thrives on our exceptional people and their outstanding technical skills. As such, we are finding that our periodic interviews with associates allow us to acknowledge and celebrate the beautiful life stories, extraordinary professional accomplishments, and even the little quirks that make us uniquely beautiful human beings.
We hope you find each Edafio associate story as inspiring as we do in gathering and sharing them.

Everyone at Edafio has a story about why they joined the team. What’s yours?
