Andrew G. Hargreave, III (aka agh3) has worked in technology in one capacity or another for over 33 years. After graduating DeVRY Institute with a BS in Computer Information Systems, he worked as a dBase III, FoxBase/Pro, and Clipper programmer for various small companies. He landed at Geneer (formerly RDI Software Technologies) as their sixth employee in 1989. They hired him as a software developer, but Andrew immediately took over the administration, planning, and development of their computer network. Over the following thirteen years, he grew their company and network to more than 200 employees, 250 workstations, and dozens of servers of all flavors (Windows, Citrix, Unix, Linux, and Novell included.) At the time of his departure, he was their Director of Technical Infrastructure.
He then joined TLC Networks, Inc. as their Network Technology Architect/Senior Information Security Engineer and supported their many clients with their technology needs. He then joined a small software firm as their Chief Security Officer and Network Administrator helping to grow their network to support the development of custom software.
In late 2006, Andrew went on to form agh3 Consulting and works with many small businesses as their outsourced Network Administrator and IT Support resource.
A quote from the President of TLC Networks regarding Andrew:
“He is famous for inventing his own creative solutions to difficult problems and truly lives up to the nickname “MacGyver“! He is one of a handful of people I’ve met that I believe is truly brilliant. That said, though Andrew is extremely technical, he excels at interpersonal communication. He comes fitted with a permanent smile and is always a hit with our clients.”
