After several pre-emptive trips to the hospital Joe and Lisa Panagos decided to wait until they knew for sure that Lisa was ready to give birth before they returned. On the way to the hospital on January 26th, 1991 their son, Josh Panagos, was born at a Chevron gas station in Titusville, Florida. One of six children, Josh was homeschooled through the 8th grade and then attended and graduated from Titusville High School in 2009. After high school, Josh moved to Tennessee for a year to start up a Jet Ski rental company with his uncle. The company, Music City Water Sports, was taken over by his uncle full-time when Josh returned to Florida to attend college. Currently a senior studying Computer Science at the University of Central Florida, ranked second in the nation for Computer Science, Josh is set to graduate in summer 2015. Josh worked his way through college as a bartender at Applebee’s for two years before joining the Leland team in August 2014. As a member of our Information Technology department he is responsible for managing Leland’s document locator server and client, resolving general PC/Tops issues, and performing updates to our Citrix environment. Josh says his favorite aspect of Leland is the opportunity to work on various projects and learn a broad range of skills while in a positive working environment. When asked about future goals Josh says he would like to eventually build his own house, run a marathon and travel to Greece.
We are proud to have Josh on our team and hope you enjoyed this installment of our Meet the Team series.
