Looking beyond the server rack for a career in IT with Glenn Pitchford – Ep 102

Glenn Pitchford is an IT director at a small nonprofit. We talked to Glenn at the SpiceWorld 2015 conference in Austin. Glenn talks about mentoring, being a trusted advisor to the business, and living the dream with a career in IT.
