It’s my pleasure to welcome Rich and Aaron to the Infrastructure Team. I’m looking forward to attaining great success with Rich and Aaron as part of Annese.

Annese & Associates, Inc. is pleased to announce that Rich Kessler and Aaron Kenney have joined the company as systems engineers with the infrastructure team. Rich will be located in the Brewster office and Aaron will be located in the Herkimer office, both reporting to Mark Coffey, Director of Infrastructure and Project Management.

Rich (pictured top right) spent the last three years as a Network Engineer and Assistant VP at Markit in New York City. His past experience includes working at IPsoft where he was a Network Engineer, ACM USA as a Systems Administrator, and American Home Mortgage as the NOC Data Center Operator. Rich is a graduate of The Chubb Institute in Network Engineering and also holds an Associates Degree in Liberal Arts from Nassau Community College.

“Throughout my interview process, I became increasingly impressed with Annese and the culture within the company. I was very excited to accept their offer and join this great team,” said Rich.

Aaron (pictured bottom right), has spent the last two years as a Network Engineer at the NCI Inc. in the Air Force Research Lab in Rome, New York. Prior to this, he worked at Turning Stone Resort & Casino as a Data Network Technician, a Telecomm Wire Specialist, and an IT Operations Technician. He is a graduate of Herkimer County Community College and is currently working on his Bachelor’s Degree in Telecommunications at The State University New York Institute of Technology in Utica, New York.

“I needed more out of my career. I wanted to be with people that truly valued talent, went the extra mile, and cared about their team and customers. After my interviews, I had no doubt that Annese was where I belonged,” said Aaron.

As systems engineers with Annese, Rich and Aaron will concentrate on assisting with install/project data collection during projects, as well as provide hands-on installation and support.
