CENIC Star | Christian Mercado

Christian came to CENIC in November of 2008 with little background in network engineering. He started out in an entry level position on our Network Operations team. Over the course of almost nine years, he has transitioned from a novice to a very capable network engineer.

Christian always displays a positive demeanor in handling any task or project and a helpful attitude with everyone with whom he interacts. Whether he’s assisting our associates with network troubleshooting, training a new hire, or helping our NOC interns, Christian has a unique ability to relate to everyone.  CENIC interns and new hires consistently cite Christian's positive influence on their development.  On the technical side, his knowledge of networking has advanced tremendously, and he can often be found working major outages, resolving network performance issues, or providing guidance to newer engineers on troubleshooting network alarms and events.

We congratulate Christian on being the CENIC Star for August, and we look forward to his ongoing contributions for many years to come!
