Steve Emms

Steve EmmsSteve is our go-to guy for all things support, what he doesn’t know about computer networks, simply isn’t worth knowing. His background in PC Repair and network installations combined with his previous experience dealing with support clients has made Steve a great addition to the RedDrum IT team. He performs a wide range of support tasks at both a workstation and server level and his extensive knowledge of firewall, router and general network configuration means he’s comfortable working in a whole range of different environments.

Steve’s dedication to his work has been vital in executing our unique service to our Professional Sports Club clients. Having attended over 100 matches, Steve works tirelessly on-site in his role as Match Day Support to ensure the IT systems run without a glitch.

Besides support, Steve also spends his time as a developer; designing and building database software applications for our client’s, as well as the RedDrum IT Inventory System.
