New CDW-G campus intern at K-State

My name is Jacob Napper and I am a student here at Kansas State University with plans to graduate with a marketing degree in 2014. I was recently hired by CDW-G as a field account representative to be the new CDW-G campus intern here at K-State. CDW is a leading provider of technology products and services for business, government and education.

Our purpose is to help our customers achieve their goals by providing them with the technology advice and products they need, when they need them. My role as the Kansas State Campus Intern will be to raise awareness of CDW-G to all academic and administrative departments on campus as a source to purchase IT products. 

Also, as a student at Kansas State, this is a great learning experience for me to acquire knowledge on how the university does business on campus when it comes to purchasing IT products and the different products they use. I work very closely with my account team, which consists of Greg Gigiel, account manager, and Chad Martens, account executive. My direct contact with them allows me to understand Kansas State’s different concerns/needs and makes sure they are addressed promptly.

In the next few months I will be going around campus, meeting with IT people in the various departments so I can get a better understanding of people, their roles and the support provided. This will also be great for me from a learning perspective. I am very excited to start this new adventure and I am looking forward to meeting new people and learning the ropes here at Kansas State University. Contact information is provided below:
