Congratulations Employee of the Month…Director of Information Technology…A.J. Allen
AJ began his employ with the City of Macedonia in March 2016. His position is a newly created position overseeing the city’s technology associated with the administration, maintenance, implementation and oversight of the computer network and telecommunication equipment.
AJ’s prior employment was with the Nordonia Hills City School District serving as their Technology Supervisor.
One of AJ’s immediate goals is to upgrade the city to a wireless internet service throughout city buildings including the recreation center site as well.
For as long as AJ can remember, he had a fascination with technology. As a middle school student he worked on computers, did web design and actually built his own computers. During his high school years, he enrolled in computer and Cisco networking which triggered his interest in what he does now. AJ received his BBA in Information Systems Management at the University of Akron.
AJ has been married to his lovely wife Lane for four years. He has two sons Jaxon age three and Gavin age one.
AJ’s other interests are Cleveland sports, bowling, spending time with family and playing with new technology. I would be remiss if I didn’t mention the fact that AJ has another passion…he is a cook! At one time he was a Chef at an Italian Restaurant!
Thank you AJ for joining the Macedonia ‘team’ and congratulations for being our featured employee.
