Who is That Guy

Teera has more than 20 consecutive years in system, network and security management, including several within executive leadership. He currently heads technical architectural efforts at two fast-growing startups: GreenTomorrow Consulting and FestiFi, where their slogan is simply, "No Problems. Just Solutions." Previous achievements lauded him as a Big Data Acquisition Leader at a premier information provider having worked his way up in a brief 8½ years from Project Manager to General Manager. Before arriving at Tracers, Teera was a Principal Systems Analyst at a large mutual fund investments firm in downtown Boston's financial district, where he coordinated incident and change management, drove problem resolution and root cause analysis, and trained technical support staff on over 120 custom in-house applications used across multiple business practices and by intra-department technology groups. In recognition for his creative and collaborative contributions, Teera received Fidelity Investments'​ Outstanding Service Award.

Prior to his six years in the finance sector, Teera was a Network Technologist at GTE's Data Network Operations Center in Tampa for two and a half years supporting GTE's National Router Network. In a previous life, Teera proudly served as a Sergeant in the United States Marine Corps as the Material Control NCO for an aviation attack squadron. He was duly recognized for migrating his entire unit from a paper-based maintenance shop to one that was nearly paperless, which earned him the Navy-Marine Corps Achievement Medal, one of the Armed Services’ highest awards for singular distinguished service toward accomplishment of the unit mission. Teera earned an Associate in Applied Sciences degree in Computer Engineering Technologies from Tampa Technical Institute, where he held various offices in their fraternity, including chapter President. In summary, Teera is That Guy.
