Tony Van Buskirk
Technical Alignment Manager
It took a passionate friend/former co-worker, a series of perfectly timed events, and a little bit of luck for Tony Van Buskirk to end up at Safety Net, but we sure are glad he did! Tony's professional life started with over a decade in the banking industry. We're sure it was by complete coincidence, he was also studying Criminal Justice and Law Enforcement. Was he hoping to stop bank robbers, or become a really good one with an inside scoop on both sides?!
Always a lover of computers and video games, when Tony felt he had done all he could do at the bank, he decided a career in IT was next. Being the hardworking, determined guy he is, Tony enrolled in classes through Colorado State University's global campus. After being on the Dean's List every semester, he earned a Bachelor's in Information Technology. Not only did he graduate, but he did so in the top 15% of his class. Talk about dedication!
Tony is as flexible as they come, often spending hours in the car to share face time with clients. Luckily, he's a fan of cars and driving, so he certainly doesn't mind traveling. His attention to detail makes him an excellent Technical Alignment Manager - working his way through a 200-point checklist or digging into a recurring issue for a client to find the root cause. Known for his playful hint of sarcasm, Tony enjoys sharing ideas and perspectives in team meetings.
When he's not soaking up the latest and greatest in tech, you might find Tony doing his most important job - being a great dad! Whether it's reading a book, watching movies, or getting out for a long drive on a beautiful day, Tony knows spending time with family is important, and he's grateful for the work-life balance he's found at Safety Net.
