ACP Receives Letter of Thanks from Longtime Partner...

Dear ACP team,

I am writing this letter to share my deepest thanks with all of you.

First, a little background, for those of you that may not know - A few months ago, I took on the role of Director of Information Technology at Kraemer North America. This is a storied organization, that is at the top of their field in what they do (large scale transportation design and construction projects).

After more than 100 years, KNA’s IT infrastructure was due for some much-needed overhaul.

For the past several weeks, I have been working with John Gibbs and Larry Wheeler to streamline the design and infrastructure of the network, as KNA invested in the vision of a better future.

Having put in some long nights with Larry over the past couple of weeks to configure, implement and support the network transition, I could not be happier. We have unraveled years of complexity, and standardized to modern, efficient, and straightforward services, hardware and configurations. We have eliminated aged, insecure and suspect hardware and configurations, and put in high-availability, performance-based architecture that has shown promising and immediate capacity, performance and stability improvements.

Along the way, I worked closely with Larry to call a couple of audibles on revised and improved configurations and opportunities to refine the plan – and he rolled with it like the pro that he is, making short work of the added changes that will serve our organization for years to come. His execution was simply exceptional.

Perhaps you do not hear it enough, but I will tell you plainly – your organization, your team, and in particular John and Larry have been my absolute and completely trusted colleagues for more than a decade. If I ever needed a refresher on why ACP, Larry and John have been valuable and helpful to the organizations that I have had the opportunity to serve – I got it on this project, in spades.

Thank you for bringing to bear the dedicated, competent, focused and service-oriented colleagues that have helped us so much. We are already developing phasing plans for the future that will further deliver value to KNA – and are energized and ecstatic that ACP’s team of professionals will be at the table along the way.

With warmest regards and with deepest gratitude,

Bryan Koch
Director of Information Technology
