Craig Cordes started with Lone Star Communications (LSC) on March 3rd, 2002. He has over 19 years of dedicated service with Lone Star Communications. His role is Computer Network Support. Craig was hired to help with the growing internal network. The former Information Technology (IT) guy was getting too busy to run the company and support computers. The network has grown in size and complexity, and Craig has been part of the growth and reliability.
In the beginning years, most of Craig’s time was spent looking after the internal network. As our industry and customers required more IT support, Craig took to solving problems for our technicians and customers. Today Craig is involved in very complex projects and solutions involving our highest profile customers.
Craig is the one in the background, the invisible glue holding things together, never seeking any attention or glory for all that he does, which includes desktop support to network administration, passwords, email, server migrations, laptop maintenance and support, phone system support, access control management and many more daily tasks. He has his hands in everything we do.
Before his career with Lone Star Communications, Craig served in the Army and worked at Texas Instruments as a technician.
His hobbies include mountain biking, has tried skydiving with his kids (that was pretty fun!), and in his younger days - competed in Motocross. Extreme stuff!
Craig said he is most proud to be supporting our network and Rauland products.
Craig loved his vacations to Vail Colorado in summer and winter.
