Joe McManus is the computer operations manager for Pathfinder Bank, Oswego.

McManus, 32, earned his Bachelor of Arts degree in information science with a minor in computer science at SUNY Oswego.

McManus said one of his most significant personal achievements is receiving his degree in 2 ½ years. Another is receiving his purple belt in taekwondo.

Prior to his position at Pathfinder, he worked as a senior information system architect at Presentation Concepts Corp.

McManus, an Oswego resident, said among his most significant professional accomplishments is implementing a help desk and network inventory system to help streamline problem tracking and resolution for Pathfinder Bank.

He also helped develop an IT consulting division for Presentation Concepts.
“I am very passionate about technology and I strive to continually learn and enhance my skills,” he said.

He is a developer and co-presenter for Pathfinder Bank’s “Money Smart” module “Keeping Safe in an Electronic World.” The course teaches individuals about online purchasing, auctions, banking, mobile banking, computer security and online identity fundamentals. He received the Money Smart Educator of the Year award for 2012.

He also helped develop and implement a tape-less backup system which securely backs up and stores data and allows for a much faster restore time.

McManus was named most valuable team member at Pathfinder Bank in 2010. He is board president with Friends of the Oswego Library; is deacon at Oswego Alliance Church; and is volunteer network administrator at Oswego Community Christian School.

He and his wife Laura have a son, Joshua.
