)-- “I called (Angel) and I said, ‘Can you please come help us?’ He came right away, dropped other appointments… He was there. He was willing to literally drop everything and come help us.” — Christine Michaels, Brandon Chamber of Commerce Executive Director
At the Brandon Chamber of Commerce’s annual banquet, a brand new award was unveiled just for the event. It’s called the Executive Director’s Award and it is reserved for one Chamber member that has gone above and beyond the call of duty in service to the members of the Brandon Chamber of Commerce.
On the evening of January 27, 2017, the Brandon Chamber members gathered at The Regent to celebrate the year’s achievements. Christine Michaels took the stage and told the members an emotional story about how hackers had attacked the Chamber’s computer systems and stolen everything. As the story unfolded, years worth of valuable data had been lost. The Chamber leadership had no idea how to recover all that had been lost, and their existing IT company had already let them down. Christine turned to Angel Rojas, CEO of local Brandon IT Services company DataCorps Technology Solutions. Christine was moved by the fact that Angel was willing to drop other appointments and do whatever was needed to help the Chamber in its hour of need: Second Mile Service, which is the hallmark of DataCorps’ operations.
After the hacking incident, Angel then went on to capitalize on his strong communication systems from DataCorps to develop a program for the Chamber to help reconnect members who’d lost touch with the Chamber, thereby strengthening the group as a whole.
