Hi Antwoine! Can you tell us about your background and how you came to Thrive?

My journey began as a helpdesk technician at my alma mater, Virginia Union University. My early interest in Cloud technology led me to volunteer to manage a significant PBX to VoIP project. This experience gave me a valuable boost in self-confidence and a sense of belonging in this field. Although the project was a success, I wasn’t initially considering a career as a project manager.

During that period, I was fully committed to being a Cloud engineer and had no plans to shift my focus. My transition into project management happened quite unexpectedly. I had the unique ability to both engineer and manage my projects. The company I was working for at the time recognized this skill set and approached me to assist in managing projects for other engineers. I agreed without hesitation. It was at that moment that I realized working on a project was significantly more straightforward than engineering, and I never looked back.

I joined Thrive after working at another MSP because I was seeking a fresh challenge in the same tech field, specifically within a larger company that offered a broader range of customers in its portfolio.

Where did you go to school or get training?

I completed my undergraduate studies at Virginia Union University, and for my Master’s degree, I attended South University in Savannah, Georgia. Regarding ongoing training, I firmly believe in continuous learning and utilize various resources, including reading, LinkedIn and YouTube.

What do you most enjoy about working for Thrive?

My team! I am incredibly fortunate to be part of a close-knit team that significantly makes my job more manageable. We share effective communication, collaborate seamlessly and genuinely enjoy working together.

Are there any recent exciting projects at Thrive you can tell us about?

Over the last six months, I’ve taken on the responsibility of managing some of Thrive’s high-value enterprise clients. This role has allowed me to demonstrate the significance of having a dedicated program manager and instill confidence in our ability to complete projects for these clients
