Network Management Professional leaning against the column

"The staff at KKI has taken our network to the next level.  We contacted them for a quote to install a new computer network complete with a new server and new workstations.  KKI took the time to listen carefully to our unique needs and then designed a network  that is faster, more secure and much more reliable than our previous one.  In addition, Jonathan and the rest of the staff at KKI are extremely knowledgeable, professional, and friendly.  I would highly recommend KKI to anyone!"

Joe came to KKI Technologies in 2002 after working in a wide range of technical and managerial capacities such as working with a DoD contractor, the National Center for Supercomputing Application (NCSA), the University of Illinois, and helping start a technical development company in Champaign, IL. After leaving the tech startup in the hands of investors, Joe was invited by his friend and brother in Christ, Elmo Joseph, to join the team of KKI Technologies, and realized the Lord was calling him and his family to make a surprising move to Bartlesville, Oklahoma! Since his arrival in 2003, Joe has enjoyed the fellowship of the men at KKI; focusing on building KKI into a truly Kingdom company with a reputation of integrity, high business standards and technical excellence. Joe believes that true success is knowing and doing the will of our Father in heaven.

Joe has also become involved with several local organizations whose goals are to end poverty within our lifetime. He strongly believes in serving the community of Bartlesville through the business that KKI provides, through personal and family involvement, helping organizations, and most importantly, by connecting folks who need help with folks and organizations can truly help so that both parties are be blessed in the process. Joe also loves spending time with his wife, Cyndi and daughter, Grace, and participates in Grace’s homeschooling and life in general, every chance he gets!
