JasonPrutchWe would like to introduce you to Jason Prutch, a Senior Network Engineer and shareholder at Go West IT. Jason is responsible for our Community Bank clients as well as the GWIT internal IT infrastructure.

Jason graduated from CU-Boulder in 1999 with a BS in Business Administration with an emphasis in Information Systems. He accumulated 7 years of experience in the IT industry before joining GWIT in 2006. Jason has an MCSE in Windows NT and Windows Server 2000 and recently achieved certification as a Storage Craft Engineer.

“Jason and I have worked together since 2006,” says GWIT President David Lewien. “Jason is an exceptional network engineer and one of the best systems architects I have ever worked with. He has done an exemplary job managing some of our largest implementations and migrations. He routinely works with auditors and examiners in highly regulated businesses and has a very good grasp of the regulatory environments our customers live in such as FDIC, FINRA, SOX, HIPAA and NCUA.”

We asked Jason what he most likes about his job and he replied, “I like the variety and exposure to different types of systems and applications. I also enjoy how much time I get to spend out in the field helping customers instead of sitting behind a desk everyday. One of the most exciting things I’m working on right now at GWIT is our expansion of Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity services using the Storage Craft product suite and cloud storage. Unfortunately, disasters do happen and can cripple a business that’s caught unprepared. Expanding these services is just another way to ensure that our clients’ IT infrastructure is well supported.”

Jason, who is married with 3-year-old twins, is a Colorado Native who grew up in Littleton, CO just a few miles from the Go West IT office. His two favorite things about Denver are the dynamic weather and the abundance of local craft breweries. In his spare time, Jason enjoys smoking meats on his Weber Smokey Mountain Cooker.
