John Michne is a big part of the cog-work that makes DiRAD run like a smooth piece of machinery. The day-to-day management of our sales operations falls on his shoulders, and as one of the owners of the company, he takes his job very seriously. Here’s a short interview with the man himself, giving you more insight into the person behind the title.
Where are you from? Clifton Park, NY
Where did you go to school? I have a BA in Criminal Justice from the State University of NY Oswego, and a Master’s in Public Administration from UAlbany.
What positive steps toward your future did you take early in your career? No matter what job I had when I was young, I showed up, worked hard, and if I saw something that needed to be done, I did it. I didn’t wait to be told what to do.
What inspired you to get into your field? I developed a deep interest in computing and technology during my time in government service and started thinking about technology as a career when people started asking me for help with their computers. As I looked for a job, I quickly realized I didn’t know half as much as I should, and would have to find something entry-level.
What did you do prior to working for DiRAD? I was a legislative assistant for a county legislature. After an election resulted in my job loss, I worked at a marina and that became one of the best jobs I ever had!
What made you choose to work at DiRAD? This was 1995. I had planned to propose to my wife as soon as I got a full-time job in technology, and this was the first company that offered me a position. I basically faked knowing a lot more than I actually did — these people were smart! I spent my weekends coming into the office to secretly learn the technology. I proposed to my wife 2 weeks into the new job.
What word would you use to describe the company culture at DiRAD? Family
Tell us about family life –I have 2 boys who are very different from each other. One goes to college for music, and the other goes to a military college. I have an awesome wife who’s an ultra-sonographer, and a dog named Wilson who comes to work with me every day.
Tell us about some of your hobbies – Riding and racing bikes! There is nothing I like better than an epic 8-hour mountain bike race. It takes months if not years to train for and gives me a purpose in my daily exercise routine. I didn’t say I was GOOD at it. To me, finishing is its own victory.
