Kordia’s IT Superhero winner revealed…
Kordia has announced the winner of their IT Superhero competition, in the form of Evertec Solutions computer specialist Edward Minnell.
Beating off nine other finalists to claim the prize, Edward has won a trip for two to the NASA Centre in Florida.
Aimed at acknowledging the unsung heroes in your business, the telco launched the IT Superhero Award earlier this year, with the lucky winner receiving a return trip to Orlando, taking in a tour of the Kennedy Space Centre Visitor Complex plus five nights of accommodation.
And if this wasn’t enough for Edward also wins $500 cash for an office shout to celebrate the victory.
Edward is a network and computer specialist who could be earning the big bucks in any number of corporate roles.
But instead he’s working for modest rates in Decile 1 and 2 schools keeping their systems and computers running.
