Joe McNeely



I was born and raised in Lee’s Summit, Missouri.  After High School I joined the Marine Corps as a Rifleman and was stationed in Twentynine Palms, CA and then deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan. After I left the Marine Corps, I went to the University of Central Missouri and have been doing sales related jobs since college.


Q: Why did you decide to come to Centriq?
A: Over my working career I have developed a passion for both customer service and technical problem-solving. A career in IT will combine these passions while giving me new challenges. Centriq seemed like a great fit for me bringing together a fast pace environment, hands-on learning, and the ability to get certified in a short amount of time.

.Q: What class has been your favorite so far?
A: A+ has been my favorite class because it gives you the foundation to build off of.  It teaches you how to fix those headaches with technology you have had in the past.

Q: What do you hope to do after Centriq?
A: After Centriq, I am hoping to get into the cyber security world. Helping people and companies protect their assets is something I am passionate about.

Q: What other hobbies and interests do you have?
A: Some of my hobbies are taking my dog to the dog park. I also like to lift heavy things and set them back down for fun.
