Kennywood Takeover Day a huge success!

A2U Kennywood Takeover Day 2021 was nothing short of spectacular! After having to cancel the event last year due to the pandemic, this year’s event was a much-welcomed day of networking and safe, family fun!

Here's a peek at the event, sponsored by IGEL, Guardicore, Cohesity, HPE, Vocelli's, Wesley Family Services, DH & Brooktree Management and Omega Credit Union.

Now introducing - New team member Michael Kingston

We were happy to welcome another member to the A2U team in August. Michael Kingston is our new Lead Technical Specialist.

He comes to us with an extensive background in healthcare IT, previously serving as a Senior Network Analyst for WVU Medicine. We are excited to have Michael on our team!

Networking and good times on-target at Keystone

It’s always a blast to hit bullseyes and network at the Keystone Shooting Center.

Take a look at this target shooting event we hosted last month, sponsored by Citrix.

A day of sunshine and golf with PBEX? We'll take two!

In early August, A2U team members were proud to attend a golf event with the Pittsburgh Business Exchange to support the Light of Life charity.

And then in September, PBEX’s Birdies, Bogies & Butler County Breweries Golf Outing gave us a chance to return to the green, try some local brews, engage in games with the golfers at the 12th hole and network on a beautiful, fall day.
