  • John Friel

John Friel

MANAGER OF IT SERVICES Est. 2015 (319) 274-4533

John is a bit of a unique employee because he actually started Forbin as an internet service provider in Cedar Falls, the first ISP in the Cedar Valley which he later sold to the VGM Group, Inc. In his second run with Forbin, John works with our programming team to support them with new technology, as well as assisting networking and computer clients. John’s programming career started in 8th grade when his teacher introduced him to FORTRAN programming. Since then, he has been educated (both by instructors and through self-education) in numerous programming languages that allow him to provide great insight into various aspects of Forbin’s products. When he’s not tinkering with code, John likes to tinker under the hood and drag race. He also collects Monopoly sets, and divides time between working on his HO Model railroad and learning to play the guitar.

  • Glen Rocca

Glen Rocca

IT SUPPORT Est. 2000 (319) 274-4525

Glen’s voice is the one most customers hear when they call wanting help with their computer or technical issues. Having been with Forbin since 2000, Glen’s role has expanded from helping local clients to working with national and international clients as we have grown. His attention to detail not only allows Glen to pinpoint and fix technical issues of clients, but is also useful when he hunts and digs for rocks, minerals and fossils outside the office. A valuable member to our networking team that helps keep things running smoothly, Glen is the field trip coordinator for a local rock club in his spare time, allowing him an outlet to pursue his geological interests.
