Some people naturally gravitate towards a professional field. For Brian Nicholson, senior systems engineer at Protech, that field is IT. Brian credits this to a lifelong interest in tinkering with things and problem solving. Growing up in Westminster, Maryland, Brian was constantly around computers, as his grandfather owned many early generation models. Oftentimes, Brian would watch his grandfather program games for him and his brother to play. It wasn’t long before he began taking computers apart and putting them back together for fun.
Naturally, when it came time to find a job, Brian looked towards computers – something he knows and enjoys. Following a few small IT jobs, Brian found his way to Protech where he set his career path. Throughout the past nine years with the company, Brian has applied his talent for technology and grown professionally, developing and honing his IT skills. March 2017 will mark his 10-year anniversary with Protech.
