About VNS


Management Team

 

 

We believe that it's important to know who you're doing business with and who the leadership is in a team.  But we also believe that as a team of 20-25 people, we'd be nothing without the great team of people that VNS has developed and maintained over the years.  Following is information on the VNS leadership and key staff members, but we have no illusions that we're only as good as each of our folks, and that every person at VNS plays a key role in providing our customers with excellent service.

Jake Klee, Repair Services Manager

Jeffrey "Jake" Klee

Repair Services Manager

Jake's journey into the technology field began back in 1985.  While most people were becoming software engineers and network designers, Jake was fascinated by the hardware that they needed to install their programs onto and computers they wanted to network.  Since then, he's worked to compile certifications throughout the industry to support and fix the hardware that we rely on in business every day.  Jake believes that there is nothing better than seeing a notebook, printer, server, or desktop come back to life, and seeing the relief it brings to those depending on it is priceless.
