Just surfing the net this afternoon and from time to time I will look for people from my days at Verio. Worked in Napa first for TabNet which then was acquired by Verio and then relocated to New Jersey when in 2002, I was laid off, But what a great ride. Best professional experience I have ever had. Happy to network with anyone.

Hello Erik. Your name is slightly familiar. I used to work in the Dallas offices, first at the Infomart and then at the old Dela building on Stemmons Frwy. I worked in customer service - billing until becoming supervisor of a group called Termination Review Team. We handled the cancellations of customer's billing for dedicated services and created Vantive tickets to process the physical termination of circuits and data transfer. Working for Verio was a gratifying experience. While the parting wasn't on the best of terms, like you, was with it when it seemed more like a family than a medium-to-large corporation. And like you, can certain tell some interesting stories. There were and are a lot of great people who were co-workers at Verio. I sometimes wonder what happened to some while staying in touch with others, usually via Facebook. Hope whatever pursuits you have are working out well for you nowadays.

I worked for Verio and still today I tell everyone that it was the best company I ever worked for. I would do it all over again given the chance. I really miss the folks I worked with there. I've been through alot of hardships since leaving there. I now live in St. Mary's, GA diagnosed with cancer two days ago. Maybe one day I get back down to Boca Raton it always gave me more positive energy. Be Blessed Verio Family!

Wow did these names bring back memories!! I was also a past employee of Verio. I remember your name but sorry I don't remember you directly. To this day this was one of my favorite places I've worked. I left shortly after NTT bought us out and went on to a start-up. Since I have done many things but ultimately have decided to pursue my passion in nursing. I hope you have had lots of luck in your endeavors and would definitly interested in hearing any updates! Take care!

Hi Erik, I use to work with you too at Verio, I was also a victim of the 2001 layoff's. I worked in the New Orleans Office as a Premier Customer Service person ( I forgot the correct title). Pat Noble was my Team Lead ( God rest her soul ), she passed a few years back fighting cancer. I miss my friends at Verio and hope they've all moved on to something better. After the mass layoff on Oct 01, I was jobless for 9 months before getting an Inventory job with a local furniture company. After 9 months of that me and my wife almost bought a Smoothie King franchize and I started a new job for a local grocery store in the Account dept. I was there from 2003 to 2006, after hurricane Katrina alot changed. When we evacuated my wife was 40 weeks pregnant, so we had a big baby boy ( Brent II ) he was 10' 6 oz. 6 months after the storm instead of leaving like a lot of other people we took a chance and bought a Cafe. It's called Cafe Latte II. So I cook, clean, make orders, take in orders, make deliveries, I do it all. But when you own your own business you have to make sure things are being done right. Well things are going in the right direction, slow but right direction. I don't think I ever had to contact you while I was at Verio, but I wanted to share what was up with me and I hope you take care. PS Congrats on the Red Sox 2 tiltles in the past few years, the Yankees can't win them all but we do need a title soon. LOL Later, Brent Normand New Orleans, LA Geaux Tigers

Hi Erik, I don't really have a handle on what you are doing but thought I'd let you know that I did in fact, search my "old" name and was led to your site. I'm now married and have been going by my first name for about 10 years now. Good luck on your endeavors. BeverlyAnn
