  • Carl Nokell
    I.T. Director
    541-389-1177 x 8565

    My professional career in Information Technology started in 1999 when I was providing technical support for dial up tech support for a local internet service provider.  I have been through the changes of technology and have continued to grow in my experience and knowledge throughout my professional career.  I am proficient in hardware and networking in being be a system administrator.  I have a wide experience providing maintenance to global companies as well as the small locally owned company's networks. Through owning and running my own IT Company I have seen the cost and benefits of being a business owner.

    For the past 4 and ½ years I have worked as the IT Director at Smolich Motors.  I assist with 113+ employees, a hundred plus workstations, manage multiple software systems, and manage the Shortel phone system that has 110+ phones. A major role in my current position is managing contracts with service providers and consulting companies. Part of managing the contracts is ensuring that both internal and external data is maintained and the data security is upheld.  My ability to successfully perform this job comes from the developed of skills over the last 18 years in the information technology industry.  Some of this experience includes ensuring the development and maintenance of all written documentation, including system and user manuals, license agreements, and documentation of modifications and upgrades; overseeing provision of end-user services, including help desk and technical support services; keeping current with the latest technologies and determine what new technology solutions and implementations will meet business and system requirements; manage and maintain network workstations, servers and firewall; document the network, hardware, software and configuration; and manage document storage facility. I have worked with a wide variety of companies, such as law firms, pharmaceutical, internet service provider, school district, fast food, banking, and medical offices.

    I have received feedback from other coworkers that I am a hard worker; I take pride in doing a good job. Being a team player, having integrity, and communicating efficiently are among some of my main values.

I enjoy the family feel not only from the Smolich family themselves, but from our wonderful loyal customers who have been coming here for years. Smolich is safety oriented, thoroughly involved in the community, and there is room for each employee to grow. They are an all around a honest dealership. I plan on retiring here!"
