It’s hiring time again, as our consulting volume has reached the point where we need more help on our close-knit, expert team!

Specifically, we’ve asked well-known SQL expert and MVP Tim Radney to join us and we’re extremely pleased that he accepted our offer. He’ll bring our team up to seven people when he starts with us on Monday, January 19th, bringing a wealth of experience and knowledge to the team. You can reach him at tim@SQLskills.com.

I’ve known Tim for years (a prerequisite for working here) and he’s a huge contributor to the SQL Community: on Twitter (@TRadney), on his blog (here), as a frequent speaker at user groups, SQL Saturdays, and PASS Summits, as the Chapter Leader for the Columbus, GA SQL Server User Group, and as PASS Regional Mentor for the SE USA. Wow! Tim was also named a PASS Outstanding Volunteer in 2012 in recognition of all that he does.

Tim’s been working with SQL Server for 15 years, in a variety of roles including DBA, Lead DBA, and multi-department manager, which have given him expertise in areas like HA/DR, virtualization, SSIS, SSRS, and performance tuning, among everything else SQL Server-related. As a manager, Tim’s gained extensive experience planning and implementing large-scale environment changes and upgrades, which will be invaluable for working with some of our larger Fortune 20-100 clients.

Outside of SQL Server, Tim is married with three kids and also shares my passion for electronics and messing around with a soldering iron. He also farms chickens and tilapias in his spare time!

Tim is an excellent addition to our world-class consulting team and we’re very excited that he’s coming on board – welcome!

Thanks as always,

Paul and Kimberly
