Mike SteigerwaldMike Steigerwald joined the IT@Sam senior management team as the Director of Client Services on August 16. Mike is an accomplished service professional with nearly 30 years of experience developing and managing highly effective technical support and customer service organizations. Mike comes to IT@Sam after 5 ½ years with the Texas Department of Criminal Justice, where his last position was that of Assistant Director, Network Support Services responsible for the agency’s desktop computing devices, peripherals, and network infrastructure throughout the state. Prior to TDCJ, he had managed customer support operations for various product manufacturers in diverse market sectors to include: videoconferencing, Local Area Networking equipment, and carrier-class (service provider) network switching systems.
