Paul Sponaugle, IT & Systems Administrator

Paul is currently an IT/Systems Administrator for Harvard Business Services, Inc., but he was initially a part of the Sales team for four years before assuming this more recent role. Born and raised in the coastal resort area of Sussex County, Delaware, Paul is the son of well-known local restaurateurs who taught him, very early in life, the value of hard work and dedication. As with all family businesses, theirs required the whole family to participate, so as a teenager Paul found himself washing dishes at his parents' establishment. It was there he began to learn business and, more importantly, the business of people, and how courtesy and great service can go a long way.

 Paul began working with computers in college, but he never considered it as a career. He spent two years in the mountains of Morgantown, West Virginia before deciding to complete his Bachelor of Arts in Biology at the University of Delaware. After graduation, Paul had no prospects of going into the medical field, so he returned to Delaware's beaches and resumed working at his family's restaurant, this time as a server and bartender, as well as at a local nightclub.

Over the next few years, Paul continued to sharpen his customer service skills, but the long hours and frenetic pace of restaurant life inspired him to look for a career change. In December 2004, he parlayed his computer and people skills into a career with Harvard Business Services, Inc.
