Meet Brad Rusher, Edafio’s July Associate Spotlight

information technology services in Arkansas

We are thrilled to pay tribute to Brad Rusher one of our July Associate Spotlight and esteemed Sr. Systems Engineer.

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, especially coming out of a time of social distancing. We have to be mindful that our company culture thrives on our exceptional people as much as 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.

Meet and get to know Brad by watching the video interview here:

EVERYONE AT EDAFIO HAS A STORY ABOUT WHY THEY JOINED THE TEAM. WHAT’S YOURS? 

I worked for Alltel and things were unstable and I wanted to expand my career and learn more. It was through a mutual connection of Kenny’s who suggested I apply at Edafio. I got an interview right away and I accepted the position. Coming to Edafio was the best decision I made and I continue to learn and grow every day.
