New Team Member: Nikki Fairchild, Business Development Manager

nikki-fairchildNikki Fairchild joined the Managed Solution team as a Business Development Manager on October 13, 2015. Nikki joins us with eight years of experience in B2B sales with a background in cabling and telecommunications. She's excited to join the team at Managed Solution.
Nikki is originally from Danbury, Connecticut where she started her career for Charter Communications for several years before moving to San Diego and getting job with Cox. Nikki has lived in San Diego for four years now and calls it home but still tries to make visits back east to visit family often, recently taking a trip to Maine to visit her mother and youngest sister. They enjoyed kayaking on the bay, whale-watching and catching fresh lobster on their lobster boat. Maine lobster, family and friends are things Nikki misses from back east, but says she’s been working on recruiting her east coast friends and family out west, finally convincing one of her sisters to move to San Diego last year along with their childhood friend.
The former high school wrestler now enjoys singing, playing piano, writing poetry and bike riding on her time off along with spending time with her puppy Jake. She found Jake alone on the streets in San Diego – when she contacted his owners she found out he was actually raised in the town next to where she grew up back east. Nikki rescued Jake and now both of the Connecticut natives are happy living in sunny San Diego together.

New Team Member: Cherla Ramsey, Director of Business Development, Arizona


Managed Solution welcomed Cherla Ramsey as the Director of Business Development, Arizona on Monday, August 31. Cherla joins us with over twenty years of experience in telecommunications. She is also an active community volunteer and philanthropist, Co-Owner and Coach at the Gila Valley’s premier Crossfit Gym and a CrossFit games athlete, placing 3rd in the state of Arizona in the Masters division during the 2015 CrossFit Open.
Cherla’s career began after high school when she took a summer job in Yuma Arizona installing telephone lines for the winter visitors. She says all technicians should start in Yuma in June because that’s how you know if you can handle the heat of any job. This summer job turned into a 21 year career with the company, she loved learning all she could about telecommunications, from installation/maintenance technician, management, construction splicing/placing to Market Development, her career at the ‘phone company’ was well versed.
Cherla grew up in Colorado and calls herself the “telephone brat” instead of an army brat because she moved several times in her lifetime as her dad transferred and accepted new opportunities within the Mountain Bell / USWest / Qwest / CenturyLink company, finally landing in Arizona as her longest lived in address thus far.
Cher has never been “dog poor” and is currently entertained daily by Mack, her English Bulldog, otherwise known as Big Mack Ditty… and he has a cocker spaniel sidekick named Jitters, or J-dog for short. They allow the furr-less animals to share the couch with them and watch TV as long as they continue to get fed. This would include Cherla’s two sons, Rance (16) and Rayden (12), they are both football players and when practice and games are over they can be found on their dirt bikes and four-wheelers stirring up dust.

At 5am every week day you can find Cherla in her CrossFit gym, (Gila Valley CrossFit) coaching the day breakers, teaching a college CrossFit class, and grabbing her own workout so she can keep up with those darn 20 somethings. She placed 3rd in the state of Arizona in the Masters division during the 2015 CrossFit Open and hopes to place even higher next year. She is active in her community and puts on a triathlon that brings in an audience of nearly 200 people annually. All of the money raised by that venture goes back in a way to build on the health and fitness of her community, via community college scholarships, or money for the local school’s weight room upgrades etc. Cherla also enjoys riding Harley’s, quads, and RZR’s, and of course watching her amazing boys play football.
A fun fact about Cherla… she went to college on a scholarship for her Violin, she also plays the piano and wishes she could play her guitar and banjo well some day too. She decorates cakes as a hobby and likes to see what daily adventures she can get herself into. She is excited to represent Managed Solution in the Arizona market and says she feels fortunate to be a part of this amazing group of people.
