Gary Kazaryan began working at CENIC in January of 2014 as a Network Engineer on our Operations team, where he demonstrated a high degree of expertise and analytical skill. In February of 2016, Gary was promoted to Associate Core Network Engineer on our Engineering team, where he continues to distinguish himself. He is a hard working and motivated team player and a highly technical engineer who remains invaluable to CENIC's success. Gary is always available to his colleagues within CENIC for consultation on technical issues and consistently uses his technical expertise to provide efficient, high-quality solutions to CENIC member institutions. His "can-do" attitude and collaborative nature make him an obvious choice as the February CENIC Star. Congratulations, Gary!
