Mike Heil joined the Evans Network of Companies May 9, 2011 as Executive Director of IT. Mike and his staff of four are responsible for all things related to technology. This includes things you would normally associate with IT such as setting up new users and agents, answering Help Desk requests, managing the email systems, website and social media, the back-up system and all of the master licenses for the varied software programs used on the Evans computer system. But that is just the beginning.
The IT department looks for ways to enhance processes and systems for all Evans users. This means providing support for training programs; maintaining the EDI (Electronic Data Interchange) system for agents; accounting systems; managing software and hardware; Change requests; and monitoring the portal access for drivers, agents and customers.
Mike and his team also evaluate hardware and software purchases working with vendors to obtain the best products at the best prices. Of course, this also means he is responsible for the IT budget and installation of any new programs.
He is a graduate of Millersville University with a BS degree in Computer Science. Prior to joining Evans was a product manager, programmer and software developer. Mike has a PMP Certification (Project Management Professional).
He and his wife Mary Kay live in Gilbertsville with their son Jake and daughter Raechel. An avid sports fan, Mike coached girls basketball in the AAU ranks and loves to play golf. A self-professed “beer snob” he enjoys traveling to beer festivals and sampling events.
