In response to the incredible growth of the company and expanse of projects, Wilmington-based Thomas Construction Group is proud to announce the hiring of Richard Santiago as Thomas’s newest, and first, Information Technology Specialist.
Amongst his many accomplishments, Richard is a distinguished veteran of the U.S. Army and has an extensive background in information technology. He prides himself on his success in program development and technical training. Richard will lead Thomas’ transition from contracted IT work to an internal technical support system. He is most excited to be working within one company to build more personalized connections and programs, rather than responding to multiple companies with varied needs and specialties. Richard says that he “can’t wait to build a “how to” catalog for employees and get the internal help desk off the ground” in the near future.
Richard spends most of his spare time with his wife and grandchildren. Most recently, he has begun playing VR video games with his 13-year-old granddaughter!
When asked about the significance of transitioning from an outside IT provider to an in-house specialist, Ellie Cura, Talent Acquisition Specialist, said: “This is a huge step for the company and shows just how much growth Thomas has had. Richard’s position will allow for quicker and more accurate resolution of technical issues and will benefit the company on every level.”
Thomas Construction Group is particularly excited to welcome Richard and already sees the benefits the company is reaping from his skills and leadership.
