When it comes to IT issues his goal for Pioneer Technology is to build a consultative partnership with our clients based on trust and integrity.

Cris Beagle is Director of Technical Services for Pioneer Technology.
He grew up in the Monterey Bay area of California - close enough to Silicon Valley that he was inspired by it and influenced by its growth.

His 18 years of experience have influenced his ability to make effective change at the leadership level and scale quickly.

Dave Baughn is Director of Network Infrastructure for Pioneer Technology.
A former Marine, Dave thrives on consistency, organization, and process. But don’t let this fool you, Dave is super relaxed most of the time! Dave is from California originally, and his family relocated to Tennessee in 2006. Dave’s 20+ year background includes his time as Senior Network Engineer team lead for a large healthcare system in East Tennessee. He was an early adopter of Pioneer Technology’s vision, enticing him to leave the healthcare system and relocate his family to Chattanooga in 2015 to help launch the company. With Pioneer Technology’s dedication to long-term care and senior living, Dave is a perfect fit. He deeply understands the importance of the IT services we provide for these organizations.
“I am honored to be part of this great team and look forward to the future growth and continued success.” -Dave

Randy King is VP, Business Development for Pioneer Technology.
Born and raised in Cleveland, Tennessee, Randy spends most of his free time with his wife and two sons. You can usually find him at soccer games, on a boat, doing house projects, or with his favorite tool - a fishing pole! He is also a dedicated church member and their family is heavily involved in youth groups, foreign missions, and more. Randy started in the telecom industry 18 years ago, in 2000. Much of his initial book of business was gained the old fashioned way - door to door! For many years he managed his customers on his own - but in 2017 he joined Pioneer Technology so they could experience the added value of managed services through an MSP. He has managed the IT services for enterprise accounts in finance, healthcare, retail, and more.
"Everyone working together and following the Golden Rule - that's the secret." -Randy
Mike Wade is Director of Cloud Services for Pioneer Technology.
He also contributes greatly to Voice Services. A renaissance man and general hobbyist of all things, Mike is curious and a tinkerer but with the goal of mastering whatever he takes on. Ask him about different types of coffee or whiskey, for instance! Mike grew up in the Chattanooga region and began his career by co-founding one of the first Internet Service Providers in the area. He has a diverse range of experience (24 years) from software development to data centers. He is a rare breed of IT leader - he understands and can work on complex IT systems while simultaneously having the ability to explain them in simple, easy to understand terms and making them impact business in a positive way.
"I.T. is like a box of chocolates. We just eat all the ones that no one else wants!" -Mike
Evan Bissonette is Director of Marketing and Business Development for Pioneer Technology.
Evan has called Chattanooga (Go Mocs!) home for three decades, though he was born in South Bend, Indiana (Go Irish!). He loves traveling with his wife and lounging with his baby son and spoiled dog. He has more than nine years of diverse marketing and sales experience in several industries, including large manufacturing companies, third-party logistics, start-ups, and various information technology services and solutions. He adds additional value as someone who is process oriented and organized (at least when he's at work!). Evan is very excited to be part of the Pioneer Technology team and proud of their focus on key industries like long-term care, manufacturing, and more.
"It is nice to know that what you are doing is helping people directly. We feel that way very strongly about the IT services we offer, and while it's really good for telling our story - it's also great to be in a position to make a difference!" -Evan
