Laura Manaugh

Director of IT, Anson Industries

In 1982 I enlisted in US Army where I would form my love of large machines. Following my 6-year stint in the Army I obtained BS in Network and Telecommunications from Devry University. A short time after I would become a network admin at a larger heavy construction general contractor. This experience would drive my desire to continue learning and receive my MPM from Keller Graduate School of Management.Seven years later I moved on to a manufacturing firm where I was mangaged the Infrasturcture team.  I would spend most of my 7 years there implementing virtualized infrastructure.After a great experience learning and growing I moved on to the IT Director role I have today. My team and I migrated our physical server infrastructure to the cloud taking equipment out of the data center into Infrastructure as a Service.What I have learned in my 20 years of IT work and my 10 years in the construction industry is that like the military opportunity to serve is key. I serve the company and the end users as well as my team to the best of my ability today.
