This is Brian Venneman, Our New Project Manager

Brian Venneman is getting ready to start moving his wife and daughter from Kansas City to Wichita. Fortunately for Jaco, he has agreed to move to ICT and join us at the office, to help us handle our ever-growing workload. Known affectionately as "Venne" (pronounced /veenee/), our new project manager brings a quirky sense of humor and many years of experience in the industry under his belt. 

We've had a quick but very interesting chat. Welcome aboard, Brian!

 

If you were to create a slogan for your life, what would the slogan be?

"Be decisive. Right or wrong, make a decision. The road of life is paved with flat squirrels who couldn’t make a decision."

or "When a woman says nothing’s wrong, that means everything is wrong.”

or "Ever think about when a bird hits your windshield that it’s God playing angry birds?"

A penguin walks through that door right now wearing a sombrero. What does he say and why is he here? 

"Come with me and ask no questions."

If you had to choose a song to play on loop in the office, what would it be?

Circus music because that’s Kevin’s theme song. The guy is a mess.

What do you like to do in your spare time?

Ha, spare time...

How do you feel about putting pineapple on pizza?

Probably not going to happen.
