Hersel Shoumer spent 16 years as a senior network engineer working for large enterprises when he decided to follow his real passion, having his own company where he could express his own values – Honesty and Integrity, Leadership, Family values, Open Communication, and Passion in Technology – as an advocate for his customers.
From those early days as a start up to now – a successful Cisco Gold partner with dozens of employees – he has worked to bring in passionate engineers and account managers that share that vision and those values with him. Hersel received his CCIE in 1997 when barely 2,000 people had such a certification and he has kept himself abreast of the field and technology in the twenty years since. Hersel is also very active in the community.
LA Networks is a large annual contributor to the Communities of Schools, which has helped keep thousands of underprivileged children in school and has allowed them to become productive members of our community. Shoumer has also made significant donations to Jewish non-profit education in terms of countless hours of building and support for their technology needs.
