Our Team

Newave is a team of technology professionals ready to meet the needs of your business every day. Having the right people in the right roles ensures we deliver the right service and solutions for YOU.

Rather than a list of corporate titles, here's the team that makes IT about YOU.

Paul – Leadership

Paul

Paul is Newave's fearless leader, managing the day to day operations of the business. As a believer in personal financial responsibility, Paul's knowledge as an intermediate investor contributes to his sound business sense.

Loving God and family above all else, Paul also enjoys fishing and basketball when he is out of the office.

Rufus – Director of IT

Rufus

Rufus manages the IT staff and all IT projects, which is rather important and makes him everyone's built-in IT and gadget guru, both in and out of the office. We think he's brilliant, but don't worry, he has degrees from OSU to prove it.

Rufus likes getting to know people, so here's a brief list of things he likes: camping, hiking, fly fishing, playing guitar, biking, cooking, photography, craft beer, and time with friends. His all-time favorite band is the Grateful Dead (RIP Jerry).

Shane – Support

Shane

Shane is the one responsible for managing projects and ensuring installs are timely and orderly so that our clients can continue their daily operations with minimal interruption. He finds the best Newave Team member for each project's needs and keeps them on schedule, following through on Newave's commitment to excellent customer satisfaction.

During off hours, you want Shane in your corner. 21 years of training in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu means he can now fall down gracefully in Portuguese.

Jeff – Engineer

Rob

Jeff is responsible for maintaining the design and integrity of your software systems, along with coordinating your complex projects. He is also part of the help desk team, backing up Ryan and Rob on your service issues.

Jeff has lived in Oklahoma all of his life and is a camper and sports fan. He doesn't believe soccer is a sport, and if you ask him why he'll be happy to discuss his thoughts and hear yours. Boomer!

Kellen – Leadership

Kellen

Kellen loves that his position as VP of Sales always challenges him, allowing him to use his gifts and talents to help others. Kellen's approachable, positive nature and the relationships he builds with his customers are invaluable resources that we and our customers depend on every step of the way.

Kellen is never really off duty, as he is a dedicated husband to his beautiful wife and loving father to a baby girl and a boy as stubborn and mischievous as he is. His parents think he deserves every minute.

Lauren – Sales

Lauren

Lauren is the driving force behind the dedicated training Newave provides for you and your staff. Lauren loves helping you learn how to use the technology and solving your tech-related problems. Problem solving and support is her priority, and if she doesn't have the answer, rest assured, she will find it for you.

Lauren enjoys spending her time after hours in the library or running… but never running in the library, because that would be unsafe.

Tara – Sales

Tara

Tara loves to solve your problems and gets excited about a good puzzle where she can wrangle all the pieces into place for the best possible outcome. Because she sees the big picture of how your business operates, she is part of how we design and implement solutions to make technology work for you and your company, every day.

Outside of the office, Tara is likely to be in the community, meeting new people, or working on her Pilates skills. In addition to puzzle pieces, she also spends time wrangling her husband and little boy.

Jeremi – Support

Jeremi

Jeremi loves the people he gets to meet and help as he works with our customers in an ever-changing environment. Every time he visits a client, he learns something new. In return, the knowledge he gains becomes an asset to the team and helps us all serve your needs better.

On weekends you'll find Jeremi outdoors – hunting and fishing – or just hanging out with his family.

Ryan –Engineer

Eric

Ryan manages the ticket board and all service related requests. In short, he's a hero, solving issues with a big smile on his face – because he really likes being the hero. We think his motto should be "Challenge accepted!"

Ryan is a Michigan Wolverine in human clothing and spends his free time hanging out with his family. (We are uncertain if he remains in human clothing while spending time with family and to the best of our knowledge, no wolverines were harmed in the making of this bio.)

Scott – Engineer

Ryan

Scott is an Arkansas native which would explain the accent.He is responsible for coordinating complex projects and assists in maintaining our extensive network of client servers and systems. Scott enjoys working one on one with our clients and strives to ensure all of their needs are resolved and efficiently implemented.

When he’s not working he stays busy with his family of five and his many animals. He also enjoys computer gaming (duh) and working on his home computer lab.

Daniel – Engineer

Ryan

Daniel enjoys a challenge and making your IT work best for you. Daniel is responsible for implementing, securing, and managing your IT infrastructures, he also oversees our Newave Cloud data center. He loves the opportunity to meet with clients and use his expertise to enhance and improve your technology experience.

When he is not at work, Daniel enjoys life with his beautiful wife and twin girls. He also enjoys serving at church, playing piano, boating, and working on classic cars.

Shadow – Engineer

Ryan

Shadow (yes, that is his real name) works hard to keep your IT working for you. Shadow handles your day to day IT maintenance and also works on our implementations project team.

When Shadow is not working he enjoys off-roading in his sports car. He boasts a larger Steam library than all of the rest of Newave’s employees combined. He also bravely went up against a Coyote with only his car and won, but don’t take our word for it, his front bumper is proof of the fight. He also enjoys time with his wonderful family.

Marty – Sales

Marty Tannen

Marty is a strong man of faith with a heart of a servant. He likes helping people become successful and making their lives easier. Marty is a devoted husband and father of three kids. When he's not serving our clients, he is found volunteering at church and in the community or watching football or movies. He enjoys music and playing the drums, but country life keeps him busy on the land and spending time with family.
