Mark Fowler - Director Information Technology AJOWhen AJ Oster decided to overhaul their IT department with the most current and powerful system infrastructure and tool set available, they found the right guy for the job in Mark Fowler.

Within 15 months, Mark and his team had installed a new help desk system, a new share point site, and a new company website. They also completed a comprehensive telecommunications upgrade across the entire AJO network, including all MPLS connections and a new telephone system. Which finds them well on the way to Mark’s goal of transforming IT into one of the company’s most valuable assets – to employees, suppliers and customers alike. 

In his own words…

“Being a Black Belt Six Sigma has been a huge help for me here at AJO. I’ve applied Six Sigma tools on every one of these projects and found everybody to be on the same page. It’s great to work for a company that’s so receptive to new ideas and eager to move forward with the IT strategies we’ve put in place.
