Echo IT Consulting, LLC was founded in 2010 in Western Colorado to serve rural Colorado’s IT, networking, and broadband needs. As the owner and principal consultant, I founded ECHO IT with the vision of providing enterprise level IT and broadband services to historically underserved rural Southwest Colorado. A Colorado native, I went to high school in rural Western Colorado, graduated from CSU with a B.S. in Electrical Engineering in 1997, and started my career with Boeing in the Denver area. I worked in networking, general IT, and broadband services for enterprise level government (DOD) and private entities around the world, and eventually brought these skills back to Colorado to apply here. I (along with the rest of Echo IT) have a positive reputation in broadband consulting among regional organizations like Region 9, Region 10, and state level agencies (CBO, DOLA) for my extensive technical broadband expertise and ability to work well with all typical stakeholders in broadband development.
Our track record with gap analysis, finding and successfully applying for grant funding to fill these gaps, and ability to work with local providers, government officials, and others is well established.
