Don Shanks is the owner, team leader, and team of this small company helping to
support his military family, as a (mostly) stay at home spouse.
He has been involved with computers since the early days of mainframe punch cards. Over the years
he has been fortunate to have worked in positions where he was constantly involved in the process of getting
computer components to work together to accomplish the task at hand.
Regardless of how simple or complex your need, Don has the extensive background and experience
to get the job done right; the first time, and on time.
Productive Connection was born in 1995 as the direct result of a corporate consolidation/downsize.
The primary focus of operation was in assisting the small business community, applying corporate level
computer expertise, to the challenges presented to small firms without a full time Information Systems support staff.
Some time after that Don married into the military family. Their first military adventure took them to
Ramstein Germany. There, Don was a full time homemaker while
going back to school after a 25 year break.
During that time he earned a BS degree in Information Systems Management
with a minor in E-Commerce management.
The mission at Productive Connection continues to be providing cost effective solutions to real world challenges.
The small business focus has been enhanced to include a a strong commitment in assisting with the often challenging needs of the military family.
Military spouses are in a league of their own, but once in a while a little help goes a long way in holding things together.
