Peter Smith

IT Associate
 
How long have you been with Origlio Beverage? Nine years. 
 
What positions have you held within the company? I started in customer service before moving to operations as a receiving supervisor, then a night-shift supervisor. I also spent some time as a router, as well as a purchasing agent. I have been in IT for over two years now. 
 
What does your current job entail? I manage new employee onboarding, device inventory, network, software applications, the IT helpdesk, etc. I’m also involved in any projects that require IT’s assistance. 
 
What do you like most about your job? I enjoy interacting with all other departments on a frequent basis. And there’s also a lot of unpredictability with this job, so every day is different – it’s never boring. 
 
What is the most challenging part of your job? Staying focused and organizing my workload based on priority. 
 
What does it take to be a top-notch IT Associate at Origlio Beverage? You need to be proficient in problem solving, have a desire to learn and of course… Google. 
 
What do you like to do when you’re not working? Any time spent with my wife and son is great. I also love to cook, I’m a long-time homebrewer and I enjoy hiking and golfing on the increasingly rare occasions I have free time.
 
What emoji do you use most often? Thumbs up. 
 
What are three things on your bucket list? I would love to attend Oktoberfest in Munich, visit all the major National Parks out west (Yellowstone, Glacier, Yosemite, etc.) and travel to Japan to eat at a world-class sushi bar. 
 
If you could be anywhere, drinking any beer, where would you be and what beer would be in your hand? I would be with my wife in an old, dark pub in England drinking a fresh bitter on cask.
