Technology Services Infrastructure
Rob Denton, Infrastructure Manager
I started working at Calvert County Government as an intern for Technology Services while still in high school. After graduating, I was hired as a full-time Computer Services Technician. I have been with Calvert County Government for sixteen years and held multiple positions along the way.
I recently transitioned to an upper management position of Infrastructure Manager where I oversee our Asset and Network Team. I was able to achieve this career growth by taking advantage of programs like tuition assistance, where Calvert County Government helps fund college courses in the pursuit of a degree.
One thing I love about working with Calvert County Government is the outreach and impact we have on the citizens of Calvert County. It allows me to give back to the community that raised me.
Geographic Information Systems
Lionell Sewell, GIS Supervisor
Calvert County Government’s Technology Services Department is a great place to work as a Geographic Information Systems professional. The department’s culture promotes collaboration, professionalism, self-improvement and a positive and empowering work environment for all staff.
Technology constantly changes and being a part of our Technology Services Department ensures that staff are either at or ahead of the change curve. More importantly, the work performed is meaningful to staff and citizens. Many resources produced by the GIS team assist staff and citizens with decision-making; including home projects, redistricting and 9-1-1 emergency response. This diverse project portfolio keeps our staff sharp and learning new things each and every day.
Kat Poff, Deputy Director/Chief Information Security Officer
I started working for Calvert County Government, Technology Services in 2000 and love my job! It's the main reason I made Calvert County my permanent home. I started out as a Systems Administrator and the job duties expanded to a Network Administrator position. In that time, I have seen the county's use of technology grow exponentially. Every single day is different, and the people who work in the department really do function as one big happy family!
The county has an outstanding training program, and I have made good use of it. Cybersecurity has always been my love, and Calvert County has supported my training and provided other opportunities to learn and grow. I recently was promoted to Deputy Director of Technology Services and the duties of a CISO are incorporated into my role. Cybersecurity changes minute by minute—and so do the tactics that the bad guys use to circumvent that cybersecurity—so I am looking forward to many more years of helping keep Calvert County government safe from the bad guys!
