Introduction

Allow me to introduce myself: my name is Bryan Bailes. I have over 12 years of experience in the IT industry, 8 of which are in a management capacity. I have worked for some great companies, and have had the pleasure of accomplishing amazing feats while working with some of the best developers on the planet. Coworkers would tell you that I have the unique ability to simplify and communicate efficiently with all facets of the business, while remaining extremely technical and being able to dive into the trenches with the IT teams. This ability has enabled me to excel in IT management, as I am able to lead as well as participate in all stages of the Software Development Lifecycle and customer communication. I work very hard to ensure that both internal and external customers are extremely satisfied and my team remains happy while producing at peak capacity. I have built entire departments from the ground up and enforced compliance, worked closely with Fortune 500 companies to implement groundbreaking technologies, and designed and built out solutions for hundreds of companies. To put it plainly, I get stuff done.
