Meet Ralph S.

Many people may not associate the world of information technology (IT) like being a plumber … but Ralph thinks that’s a perfect analogy.

“People expect to turn the water faucet and the water comes on, it’s the same thing with IT. People turn on their computer and expect email to come through,” Ralph said. “My job is to make sure that email is flowing through and doesn’t get stopped.”

Ensuring smooth email communications is just one of many duties Ralph performs everyday as Dorner’s senior IT administrator. During his 11-year career at Dorner, Ralph is a jack-of-all-trades when it comes to IT functions, from helping people change printer toner cartridges, designing networks, coordinating shared servers with Dorner’s international locations, and everything else in between.

“I enjoy the variety of work that I’m doing; when it comes to IT, you name it, I touch it,” he said.

Everyone has a critical role to fulfill in making Dorner successful, and Ralph gets great satisfaction in doing his part to keep people connected.

“I think one of the keys to our overall success is that everyone is very helpful,” he said. “We’re always willing to lend a hand to somebody else, or give a little more information, or point people in the right direction to find what they’re looking for. I think everyone has that teamwork mentality here at Dorner.”
