“I just wanted to let you know that I am currently the MIS Manager for Ford Audio Video in Oklahoma City. I work in the Corporate Headquarters and am responsible for all the technology / WAN / LAN / Hardware / Software that supports the OKC Office and 6 remote divisions, which totals 175+ users. I use my 15 years of experience along with my knowledge gained while completing my Bachelor's Degree through (the) Fort Hays State University virtual college on a daily basis."
