Fiber directly to someone’s home?  You honestly think we could do that?

I recall these conversations vividly from almost ten years ago in a cramped little office above what is now Bangkok Gardens on Cherry Street in Columbia, MO. We had painted the walls, bought a used conference table, several faux leather couches and a lot of white boards to create a place that the owners of Socket could get away and talk about what’s next. 

Every month, Socket employees nominate and vote on a co-worker who best exemplifies our Core Values and Beliefs.

This month, we picked Nick Peña.

Nick's been around for a while. He first became a Sockteer almost 10 years ago, as a young, eager technical support representative. He worked his way through Socket, sporting a variety of hairstyles as he did--including a ponytail, mohawk and shaved head.

Every month, Socket employees nominate and vote on a co-worker who best exemplifies our Core Values and Beliefs This month, we picked Ralph Wood.

Ralph's been cleaning up our messes for nearly two years now. And as a company made up of mostly guys, let's just say we're not the neatest bunch.

He shows up at 5:30 AM every weekday to keep the place looking great. And he gives us all a smile and a "Good morning" every time we see him.
