TAYLOR HOBBS is joining Victory Electric as the new information technology analyst in the information technology department.
Hobbs was raised on a black Angus cattle ranching operation near Penokee, Kansas. After graduating from Trego Community High School in 2009, Hobbs went on to attend Northwest Kansas Technical College in Goodland, Kansas, and Hutchinson Community College. He received his associate’s degree to become a computer support specialist with an emphasis in networking from Hutchinson Community College in 2011.
Hobbs knew from an early age he wanted to pursue a degree in the computer technology field. “I grew up relying on rural internet service. Once it went out they sent a technician to come and fix it,” Hobbs said. “Watching him really made an impact on me. He was able to get the internet working again, which seemed magical. It made me want to be able to help others with something so important to our day-to-day lives.” As an information technology analyst, Hobbs will design and implement new information systems that promote organizational efficiency.
Before working at Victory Electric, Hobbs was an information systems support specialist for the Edwards County Medical Center in Kinsley, Kansas. Prior to working for the medical center, Hobbs helped operate his family’s farm and ranch.
“I am excited to take on this new role and the new challenges that come with it. I strive to help Victory Electric become more efficient by making the technology simple, useful, available and a wonder that we ever lived without,” Hobbs said.
Hobbs has been married to his wife, Jaimie, for two years, and they have an 8-month-old daughter named Lainey. In his spare time, he enjoys woodworking, playing with his daughter, playing board games with friends, and remodeling the house his family recently purchased.
