While she has traveled extensively, spending time in Cape Cod and other parts of the Northeastern United States remains her favorite destinations. A lifelong goal is to create a farm to help rescued animals.

Mo has done volunteer work for In God’s Love We Deliver, a meal delivery service for people who are too sick to shop or cook for themselves. Her next nonprofit is going to be Pets Alive, no-kill animal rescue, located in the foothills of the Catskill Mountains.

Steven Grobler
Director of Technical Services

Steven’s global IT adventure began in his hometown of Durban, South Africa. After he had finished high school, he went on to get a Diploma in Computer Science and added various Microsoft certifications to his CV.

An IT training job in college turned into an IT supervisor position for Sun Coast Casino over the first two years after school. Steven then took the opportunity to move to London where he filled various IT roles and got his first taste of working for a managed services provider (MSP).

After returning to South Africa, he applied for a job at Netsurit and became a roaming tier 2 consultant. His use of a Kawasaki Ninja motorcycle and a backpack to navigate the nightmare that can be Johannesburg traffic vastly improved the team’s response times to onsite work.

After a brief stint as a consultant, he returned to Netsurit and eventually became Team Lead of the Roaming Service department for three years. His next step was Support Operations Manager. Steven also became part of the Netsurit Executive Committee and had been involved in the strategic direction of the company.

When Netsurit merged with Marathon Consulting, Steven joined Marathon to become Director of Technical Services for the US company and found his way to the Big Apple. He really feels we are building on a great base in the US that is destined for greatness. Watch out New York City!

When he is not at work, Steven is most likely out exploring the city. He is becoming an advanced subway rider and can recommend some great pizza and bagel spots to try out. His bucket list travel destination is a trip to explore the Amazon in Brazil.

 

Peter Hodges
Director of Marketing

Peter’s passion for telling stories started when he was very young. He decided in grade school that he wanted to become an actor to fight the bad guys in Battlestar Galactica and that goal carried all the way through college with a BA in Theatre Arts.

While he only had one paying gig as a performer, he quickly found sales and marketing to be a perfect “grown up” opportunity to use the storytelling skills he learned.

Peter spent the first ten years of his career in the financial services and insurance industry. Then he became a director in a leading Denver marketing agency before making the transition into the information technology sector with Marathon Consulting.

When he’s not at work, Peter is devoted to his family. He also pursues his passion of landscape photography. A photo from his trip to Peru is on the cover of National Geographic Traveler’s Peru guidebook.
