InterDev, an Atlanta-area provider of information technology, security and geographic information systems (GIS) services, today announced it has hired Recardo Tucker as its new Information Technology (IT) Manager for the Southeastern region. In this capacity, Tucker will plan, coordinate, direct and design IT-related activities at each of InterDev’s municipal client sites in the region, providing administrative direction and support for daily operational activities of the IT department.
Tucker will also work closely with decision makers in the departments at each client site to identify, recommend, develop, implement and support cost-effective, optimal technology solutions for all aspects of the organization. Finally, he will define and implement IT policies, procedures and best practices at each client site, ensuring municipal client operations align with the business objectives of both the client and the organization.
“I am gratified for the opportunity to apply my expertise managing extensive, multi-faceted IT deployments for the benefit of InterDev and its municipal clients,” said Tucker. “I am excited about this opportunity and the challenges it presents.”
Before joining InterDev, Tucker worked as the Assistant IT Manager for Georgia State University (2015 to 2018), where he led a device management team overseeing 800+ computers for more than 30,000 university students. He also oversaw the work of 40 IT specialists and assisted in managing a $300,000 IT budget. Prior to that engagement, Tucker held a series of progressively responsible IT management roles in varied industries, working as Senior Desktop Analyst for ViaSat, Desktop Support Administrator for Pardot by Salesforce.com, System Integration & Testing Engineering Associate for Lockheed Martin, and other high-value IT positions.
Tucker possesses broad technical proficiency in networking and virtually all major computer and networking operating and hardware systems. He has served in the U.S. Army and is a graduate of the University of Phoenix with a master’s degree in Information Systems.
“Our Southeastern Region is where InterDev got its start in municipal IT management, and it remains one of our most significant areas of operation,” said InterDev CEO Gary Nichols. “As such, it is imperative that we have a consummate professional overseeing our IT work in the area. We are very pleased to have found that individual in Recardo Tucker.”
