“In today’s IT world, if you’re not constantly learning, you’re going to be left behind. My job changes every day, which I really like,” says Addorio Technologies’ Tony Dommer.
Though he went to college with the intention of becoming a high school science teacher, while majoring in biology and chemistry at Western Michigan University, Tony switched his focus to research and development. Then, after working in the labs at Amway for twelve years, his career focus changed again, this time to Technology.
Tony joined his sister Betsy at Addorio Technologies in 2005. “I was always the kind of person that when my computer broke, I would just fix it myself. So, as Addorio grew, Betsy started talking to me about coming to work with her, and that’s really how I got into it.” Tony took computer and IT classes in the beginning but said, “You have to be able to keep up with the changing information on your own, and that is one of our strengths at Addorio Technologies.”
Tony now specializes in virus and malware removal and troubleshooting client computer hardware issues as well as installations and upgrades for Addorio Technologies. He also teams up with Betsy for network and software installations.
A registered official with the Michigan High School Athletic Association (MHSAA), Tony has refereed for Lowell Area Youth Football since 1985 and recently celebrated 25 years as referee coordinator. He also enjoys organizing golf outings and events for local organizations, friends, and family. Tony and his wife Mary have two children, a son at WMU and a daughter attending Lowell Area Public Schools.
