Steve Gauer | Support Engineering Team Lead

Steve Gauer returns to enCompass with much applause from our existing client base who remember him before his brief departure a few years ago, when he sought a shorter commute from his home in Kent.  It was a difficult loss for enCompass at the time, but Steve was welcomed back with open arms when he realized how much he missed working here!

With his significant experience in IT support, he adds tremendous value from a technical and planning point-of-view. Being a managed services veteran, it’s hard to put a quotient on the value he has added to our staff.  Credit Unions and Banks appreciate the relationship that Steve develops on site and over the phone, and his ability to respond and remedy any situations makes him a fan favorite!
