Brock Haley

Title: IT Systems Administrator

What service area do you work? I work on the Corporate Team to help support all EcoEngineers employees.

Where are you from? Maxwell, Iowa

Why do you do what you do? I enjoy designing and implementing and trying to find the most cost effective and reliable systems.

What does a Clean Energy Economy mean to you? Reducing our environmental impact so that our world is safer for us and those to come, specifically, reducing the amount and number of negative output(s) that result from energy use. I believe it is our responsibility to preserve the beautiful planet we have to the best of our ability.

What question do your friends or family typically ask about your job? Generally they assume I fix computers. I explain that I enjoy configuring computers and software and helping staff with computer and network issues. Also, I explain that I design and implement the backend equipment, such as servers, software, and networking equipment necessary for the computers to access the systems and information they need.

What is the biggest problem you solve? How would you describe it and your approach to fixing it? Keeping our systems running reliably and securely. I will be working through each aspect of our network to ensure we have a procedure in place for maintaining operations during the event of equipment or software failures. I will also be reviewing each security aspect in order to identify any weaknesses or opportunities for improvement, and then making/implementing those improvements.

How would you describe your biggest win? It has felt like a success to get our new server appropriately configured and ordered. Also, I enjoyed reviewing our cybersecurity insurance and making recommendations.

What do you do you for fun outside of work and why do you enjoy it? I love playing with my boys. We play board games, video games, we make up games to play (like “Battle Flips” and “Uno and Judges”), go mini-golfing, bowling, run errands together, go to the arcade, go to the trampoline park, visit family. Everything is fun when I’m with my boys. I also enjoy the time I get to spend with my girlfriend, given our schedules do not always align.
