Structured Engineer Earns Coveted Top Tech Certification, Joins Colleague in a Rare Pairing

“Juniper Ingenious Champion” certification underscores Structured’s dedication to offering its clients the best and brightest IT engineering resources in the country.   PORTLAND, Ore. (Aug. 16, 2013) – There’s a brand-new Champion in town, and he’s Ingenious to boot. Structured engineer Jeff Helten cleared the final hurdle of a rigorous technical certification track to join fellow Structured engineer Josh Miller as a Juniper Networks Ingenious Champion. This achievement places Helten and Miller among an elite group of just 113 IT engineers nationwide. Structured, a leading technology systems integrator of data and voice networks, is the only U.S. company headquartered in the Pacific Northwest to have two Ingenious engineers on staff. “Engineering excellence defines Structured,” said Ron Fowler, Structured president and CEO. “Our customers have relied on us for 20 years to help them build secure and scalable IT infrastructures that serve their present and future technology needs. We are pleased that Juniper Networks is foundational to that process, and we are delighted with this latest achievement.” A Juniper Champion is recognized as a technical expert who can solve complex networking challenges in routing, switching and security using Juniper’s vast platform of hardware and software products. There are three levels of Champion: Aspiring, Innovative and Ingenious. Ingenious is the highest designation available, and these engineers have distinguished themselves by earning advanced Junos OS technical certifications and have broad experience with Juniper design in multiple domains. Helten’s new certification enhances an already-deep pool of engineering talent at Structured. “Jeff did a remarkable job with a tough program and we are so pleased to have him on the team,” said Ty Trabosh, vice president of Professional Services for Structured’s Secure Infrastructure practice. “All of our engineers are truly dedicated and talented professionals, and this Ingenious Champion designation is further proof of our industry value and adherence to the highest standards.” “Being one of two Ingenious Champions for Structured has been an adventure,” said Helten. “Juniper has set a high bar for their Elite Partners and has been exceptionally supportive and encouraging.
