This is Nathan's second time winning this award - his last win was back in 2013 as a Business Center Technician, shortly after his promotion from Residential Tech. Since then, he's rounded out his experience at Socket by spending some time in field services, before becoming one of our overnight provisioners.

Matt joined Socket's team over 13 years ago, and is the go-to authority on contracts, legalese, and third-party vendors. Whether it's setting up new colocations and fiber builds, or working out disagreements with Centurylink and AT&T, Kohly is responsible for making it happen.

Socket was proud to be this year's presenting sponsor at the annual Countdown to Kickoff event, benefiting Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Missouri.

Held in the Columns Club of Memorial Stadium, this night of live and silent auctions helps to raise funds supporting over 500 local youth yearly. This year's event raised over $100,000!
