Employee Spotlight: Robert Cheeney

Robert Cheeney

My name’s Robert Cheeney, and I work in IT. I’m the guy you hope not to have to see too often, but when you do, you’ll always be thankful I’m there.

I joined the IT team earlier this year and hit the ground running. We’re a small department, but we’re masters at fixing any computer on the fritz.

I manage Enstrom’s computers, printers, servers, network, and anything else an employee might send in a helpdesk ticket for. In my first few months, I’ve dedicated my time to getting the new Paycor kiosks up and running, redesigning Enstrom’s internal website, and setting up cameras for the Experimental Department tests.

While I might be new to Enstrom, I’m no stranger to IT and aerospace. I previously worked IT for the Air Force for seven years, finding myself deployed around the world, moving around a lot, and wearing a lot of hats. Enstrom offered my wife Gabrielle and I an opportunity to settle down, but we’re no less busy. We just bought a house, which comes with its own never-ending slate of home improvement projects.

I’ve always been fascinated with the inner workings of computers. Like a true IT nerd, when I’m not at work, you’ll likely find me building my own computer or playing video games with my two kids. I also love playing sports and working out.

So, if you’re ever frustrated with your device and ready to toss it out the window, don’t hesitate to contact your friends in IT! It’s our job to help you, and we can save you a lot of headaches.
