Tony Dodd

President & Technology Consultant

Tony has worked in Technology for 30 years and in that period, almost everything has changed – hardware, software, connectivity – the cycle of change has been constant.  However, there is one thing that remained constant, great customer service.  Although hard to find and even harder to instill into a team, this has been the cornerstone of Dato.  Starting the business 20 years ago, Tony made the customer experience his singular aim.  At DATO Technologies, we believe in delivering a great customer experience in technology. This has been one of the key differentiators of DATO Technologies from the multitude of providers out there and has been the key to our success.  Having worked in technology from the ground up, Tony understands what it takes to deliver relevant technological advice, quality products, and fantastic service to our customers.  He makes the customer experience the yardstick by which everything and everyone at DATO is measured.  Today he has transitioned from working “in” the business to working “on” the business, but his passion stays the same while aided by a wonderful team who believes that technology that works well is an achievable goal!

Mike started his IT career in the mid-1980s with a background in the travel industry, branching out to support many different industries and services. His strengths are networks, both wired and wireless, various desktop and server operating systems, cabling infrastructure, telephony, and technical consulting. After running an IT consulting firm of his own for over 14 years, Mike decided to join forces with Tony and the rest of the team at DATO Technologies in 2017. Mike’s certifications include Microsoft, CompTIA Network Plus+, Allworx, and Zultys VoIP phone systems. In Mike’s words, “Being a team member at Dato Tech is like no other. I truly enjoy the people I work with every day, both co-workers and clients.”

Courtney Rosser

Support Technician

Courtney has over 20 years of experience in the IT industry. Helping others is such a big part of his life as he finds more happiness in giving, than receiving.  While technology has always been a passion and interest of Courtney, he likes to remind himself of Elbert Hubbard’s quote, “One machine can do the work of fifty ordinary men. No machine can do the work of one extraordinary man.” Courtney lives his life extraordinarily as an active father of 3 and a football coach. When he’s not working, you can find him fishing, watching football with his kids, or training with them on the field.

Patrick has been fascinated with technology from a young age and has been building and maintaining his own computers for more than a decade. He brings a wealth of customer service experience to DATO, and has spent the past three years completing IT certification programs. He currently holds the Google IT Support Professional, CompTIA ITF+, and CompTIA A+ certifications, and is working on expanding that list. He is excited to join the great team at DATO.
