Life is not fair, it’s uneven at best, so best to make the most of it.
What is your role at CompuCom?
As a product manager my role is to evaluate market & client needs and ensure CompuCom delivers solutions that meet these needs in a way that clients see value and CompuCom is successful. I am responsible for defining and delivering products and services that provide compelling value and experiences that are focused on end-to-end IT managed services and digital solutions.
Share a little about your background.
I graduated from the University of Nebraska with a BS in Computer Science. I’ve spent the past 20 years in product management in the Cellular, Enterprise Wireless and Managed IT services sectors.
Why did you choose to work at CompuCom?
I was looking to expand my experience into areas of product management that I had not worked in before. My experience before CompuCom was mainly product managing hardware & software products. Services was something that intrigued me and when the opportunity with CompuCom opened up I pursued it for that reason.
What are some key achievements at CompuCom?
Officially launching CompuCom’s IntelliCare and SmartNOC services and more recently our Wireless Failover service.
What is a fun fact about yourself?
I served 26 years in the Air National Guard. As a young man looking for a way to support myself and make my way through college, my love of airplanes inspired Bruce to join the Air National Guard. I spent 26 years in the Air National Guard and served multiple deployments supporting Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom. I served in three Air Guard units, Nebraska, Kansas and Texas. After the horrific events of Sept. 11, 2001 occurred, I found myself on multiple tours. They weren’t my favorite deployments, but we were there for a reason.
I never expected that I would stay in the Air Guard for so long, but my time there went by quickly. I forged many great friendships. I had many deployments and I’m glad I did them. It was great life experience for me, but being a reservist is very different from working full time. Bruce retired as a Master Sergeant in the Texas Air National Guard in 2010.
What are your interests?
Outside of my work at CompuCom I officiate Texas High School football games and serve on the Statewide Board of Directors for Officiating Football in the state of Texas.
