We are pleased to introduce you to Paul Sobering this week. Paul is Sustainable Waterloo Region’s IT Manager, and keeps us all sane when technology gets the best of us. Paul started at SWR as an IT Support Specialist, where he knew he could develop his skills while supporting a cause that he cared about. Paul loves being able to work with other individuals who are taking measurable action against climate change. At SWR, we have enjoyed having Paul help us with various different projects this year. With a breadth of IT knowledge, Paul has implemented various innovative solutions to issues that we encounter, while making these solutions easy for the whole team to understand. He supports our team of 60-80 staff and volunteers with all of our IT needs including hardware, GSuite, IT accounts, and user support. This year a few of the larger projects Paul helped with include coordinating IT changes during our office move, improving our Salesforce processes, and amalgamating our email marketing lists to a streamlined provider. Paul also works at a call centre taking insurance claims. In his free time, he enjoys playing sports. This summer he had fun playing volleyball, even though he wasn’t good at winning. He’s also looking forward to dodge ball this winter.
