Whether it’s helping a fellow colleague with a forgotten computer password or educating ATKG staff on the latest accounting software, Tate Edwards is the go-to guy for all things plugged-in, battery-powered or cloud-based. Tate became ATKG’s IT Manager in January of 2016. He has an extensive technology background with experience in multiple industries. Before joining ATKG, Tate handled IT for an insurance company with a worldwide customer base and also provided technology support to several companies in the healthcare industry.

Along with his resume, Tate’s passport is also pretty impressive. It’s been stamped in some amazing places throughout his travels to Dubai, Kona, Chennai, Alexandria, and Rio de Janeiro. He claims he can whip up a mean Zabaglione (a light Italian, custard-like dessert), and he’s become quite accustomed to random strangers stopping him to tell him he looks like Chris Martin from Coldplay.

When Tate needs a break from the techie world, he heads outside to care for his exotic, tropical plants which he hopes to soon shelter in a greenhouse that he plans to build.

Tate and his fiancé are dog lovers and have a house blissfully full of fur.
