We recently added a project manager to our team! Evan Shrader is an energetic project manager who excels at creating and enhancing structural efficiencies and promoting effective team strategies. Evan thrives on making projects easier for those he works with, on keeping a handle on complex priorities, and on pursuing projects that make life better for those impacted. Evan believes that getting any project to the end-zone requires a great team that can work well together while maintaining a positive and friendly atmosphere.
Evan will spend his time enhancing the current project management process at PDA, as well as managing the projects of PDA’s software development team. Evan is also involved in several of the Evaluations and Statistics projects at PDA.
Prior to joining PDA, Evan worked as an IT Project Manager at Provident Funding Associates, where he managed the proprietary cross-matrix software development projects of several key financial and business divisions. His background includes both Waterfall and Agile project management methodologies, helpdesk support, technical research and design, software user-testing, process innovation, budget analysis, and team management.
Outside of PDA, Evan loves spending time with his family. He mentors youth through his local church, and loves individualistic sports, including skiing, rock climbing, martial arts, and ice-skating. When the weather’s warm, he and his fiancé go camping as often as they can… although both being redheads, they often have to stay in the shade.
