Joe Kubiak Server and Support Specialist

“Let’s Polka!” These words are music to the ears of Networking Technologies Server and Support Specialist Joe Kubiak.  A fan of a good dark beer and Polish music, it’s not uncommon to see Joe with an accordion in hand on stage with Polka Relations, a local polka band.

While his love of music and his Polish heritage are strong, his love for IT and serving his customers are obvious. After graduating from North East High School (PA), Joe went on to earn a Bachelor of Science in Information Science from the University of Pittsburgh and his MBA from Gannon University.

Joe worked as the Server Administrator at Zurn Industries and as the IT Director for All American Hose. Since November, he has been implementing solutions and providing support for the IT infrastructure for Networking Technologies’ clients as a Server and Storage Specialist. Joe’s plethora of experience and sense of humor have made him a valued team member for those he works with and those he serves. He explains that punctuality is essential and not just with his customer’s deadlines.

“If you’re on time, you’re late. My dad taught me ‘on time’ means 15 minutes early,” Joe said. “It drives my wife crazy!”

When he’s not instigating her, he enjoys spending time with his wife, Jen. They live in Millcreek with their sons, Raiden and Daniel, and Jackson, a cairn terrier. Joe enjoys coaching Daniel’s swim team at St. George School, and spending time with Raiden when he’s home from studying Illustration at the Columbus College of Art & Design.
