Founder, President, and CEO
ITConnexx Founder and President, Brian O’Shaughnessy has spent more than 25 years in the Information Technology arena, developing efficient networks for as few as two computers to as many as three thousand.
Brian’s IT career began at Advanced Veterinary Systems (AVS) in hardware support, but he was quickly promoted to network configuration. He went on to serve as the lead R&D technician and the “tech of last resort” when it came to solving the unsolvable problems at AVS. In 1995, Brian moved on to an IT Technical Specialist position the University of Wisconsin – Eau Claire (UWEC), where he implemented and maintained an email network as well as a Microsoft Windows NT Server network for nearly 20,000 users.
1998 carried him to his new role as Senior Network Engineer at American Medical Security (AMS), a large insurance company with a network exceeding 3000 computers. In the short 14 months that he was there, he led an evaluation and consolidation effort to move from hundreds of network servers to dozens, and he also led the implementation of a Microsoft Exchange Server, Internet Information Server and a centralized fax server network.
Driven to make IT easier for small businesses, 1999 brought Brian’s full-time shift to OS Consulting, Inc., a small company he originally created in 1993 to serve the design, acquisition, implementation, and support needs of everything technology-related for smaller businesses with five to seventy five computers. In 2005, Brian changed the company name to ITConnexx.
A 1991 graduate of The University of Wisconsin – Eau Claire, Brian’s focus goes beyond simply solving problems; he is devoted to preventing them through ITConnexx Computing as Promised Services and to providing exceptional customer service.
