We are pleased to welcome Wesley Bennett to the Vision Net team. Wesley comes to us from the frozen north in Alaska. He did a four year stint in the Navy before returning home to continue on his career path in electronics, even owning his own business for a while. After reconnecting with an old friend after many years apart, Wesley ended up in a committed relationship and made the move down to the lower 48 in November of ‘21.
What made you choose Vision Net?
After seeing the initial job posting, I did my due diligence and learned about the company’s history, which gave me some good vibes that I had at one of my last jobs with Telco. With my military background and my experience, I saw an opportunity to expand my base knowledge as well as my individual technical skills.
What are some of the responsibilities you have in your role?
Learning/knowing how to act in an independent manner to resolve issues that arise within the NOC and the company as a whole, while, also, recognizing the importance of working in a team-oriented environment.
What is an exciting aspect of your role?
The breadth of knowledge and expertise of the team and being able to absorb as much of that information as possible.
What is your favorite movie?
The Phantom by Simon Wincer, which is based on the screenplay by the same name, by Jeffery Boam.
What is your favorite food?
Most Asian-Pacific dishes of any variety.
What is your favorite thing about living in Great Falls?
It gives me a lot of similar vibes and feelings as my hometown of Anchorage, AK…..minus the dramatic rise in crime.
Do you have any talents or hobbies?
Since ‘15 I have been delving into my creative passion of Glass-working ranging anywhere from small glass trinkets, functional glassware, and working my way towards personalized glass orders and scientific pieces. I also have a deep love and passion for firearms and the study of ballistics in general.
