Sam McAllister is a voice technician working out of our Greenville, SC location. He is certified on our Mitel voice products but many VoIP systems have him crossing over to work on products such as Microsoft and Dell SonicWalls. Sam is Network+ certified meaning that he can also build, manage and make a plan to protect data networks.
Sam attended Bob Jones University, graduating with a BA in Bible and MA in Pastoral studies. His passion for Christ comes through in his reserved calm and methodical manner in which he works through technical challenges he sometimes faces.
One of the most unusual challenges he has faced was an acoustic issue. “I once received a call from a customer who told me that when he would dial an attorney’s office his phone would call a pizza place. Despite dialing numbers correctly, his phone would call seemingly random numbers. After careful investigation, I found he was dialing with his speaker phone on and the large room he was in was distorting the tones for each key he pressed. Once he made his calls using his handset, rather than the speakerphone, everything worked correctly.” -Sam
On weekends and downtime you can find him at Cornerstone Baptist Church where he serves as an interim pastor, spending time with his wife and three children, reading, or doing graphic design work. He enjoys the long days of summer, watching a sunset from a mountain top and enjoying locally roasted coffee.
