Employee Spotlight: Brian LaPratt

Technology Lab’s Service Manager and Project Manager Brian LaPratt met CEO Josh Boyd in 2010. Initially, Brian worked for Josh as a technician for Computer PROS before pursuing his degree in Information Technology and Services. When Josh was looking for someone to manage his team of tech experts, he thought of Brian. With Brian’s personal experience as a tech, he truly understands the joys and challenges of establishing, maintaining, and troubleshooting IT. We spoke with Brian to talk more about his role at Technology Lab and his passion for constant improvement. (Just ask his wife about their new “dining room”). Brian brings a good sense of humor and his formidable problem-solving skills to the table each day at Technology Lab.
