CENIC is pleased to name Network Engineer Mark Lozada the CENIC Outstanding Achievement Awardee for the Month of May 2016.
Mark has been a network engineer on the Operations team with CENIC for over nine years. Because of his hard work, initiative, and willingness to help mentor new employees, Mark was promoted to Lead Engineer.Mark has continued to develop his technical expertise as a Lead Engineer, focusing on complex tasks such as network performance issues.
Mark exemplifies the term "lead by example;" he will never hesitate to take on complex maintenance tasks himself, to assist his colleagues, or to remain on shift after his normal shift has ended until any issues are resolved (even though he has three daughters waiting for him at home).
Recently, Mark has taken on the task of working on Pacific Wave related projects. He attended the Pacific Wave meeting to represent CENIC and discuss the transition of operational support for the Western Regional
Network. He is also working with Pacific Wave to create documentation for CENIC’s role in their disaster recovery plan. These are just a few reasons why Mark is deserving of being a CENIC Star. Thanks & Congratulations Mark!
