BDK, Inc. Hires Fifth New Employee Since the Start of Pandemic
Easton, MD -- As the New Year draws near, BDK, Inc. has just brought on their fifth new
employee for the year 2020.
In our current economic climate, many businesses are having to rapidly adjust to the “new
normal”. Owners of BDK, Bruce and Edwina Kimball, began expanding their staff in hopes
of being a strategic partner to businesses by providing solutions as well as adding value
through technology. “Having been in business for 22 years, we have seen economic downcycles
before,” says Edwina. “Fortunately, today we are in a better position to take
advantage of resources available due to no fault of their own.”
Brian Kimball - VP of BDK, Senior Systems Engineer and eldest son of the Kimballs’– claims
the company is always looking for new talent. “The most important thing we look for is
good personal skills and demeanor. We can teach and train technical expertise, but personto-
person interactions are hard to teach.” Being a B2B organization, the expertise of BDK’s
staff was in demand now more than ever. “We did not plan to hire this many people. But
after interviewing candidates, it was clear that these individuals were hardworking and
would be valuable to BDK.”
The most recent hire has been described as a “necessity”. David Katz, a programmer whose
specialties lie in automation to improve business processes, has been brought aboard to
join BDK’s Analytics Department. “Analytics and Cloud Services continue to be the fastest
growing portion of BDK,” says Kimball.
This year’s first hire was an easy one; she was working as an intern with BDK as she
completed her bachelor’s degree in Information Systems at Salisbury University. Morgan
McCabe graduated with her degree this past spring, specializing in Enterprise Resource
Planning. She is a certified SAP Application Associate for Business Process Integration with
SAP S/4HANA 1809. Since being hired following her graduation, Morgan has helped
support and grow BDK’s ERP offerings.
In August, BDK welcomed their first Marketing Coordinator. Bruce Kimball pulled Maddie
Megahan’s resume when he saw that she was a fellow Towson University alum. Megahan
earned her bachelor’s degree in 2014 from TU’s Mass Communication’s program with a
focus in Public Relations. She previously held the title of Hotel Manager as well as Director
of Group Sales and Marketing at a waterfront resort located in St. Michaels, MD. Before
graduating from TU, Megahan found her passion for brand and digital design when
interning for an events, design and branding studio in downtown Baltimore.
Frankie Gunsallus IV joins the BDK staff as their newest Account Manager. Gunsallus brings
a local network with him as he was formerly employed with APG Media of Chesapeake as a
Client Solutions Manager. He is a 2011 graduate of Salisbury University with a B.A. in
International Relations and Affairs. In addition, Gulsallus also serves as Chairman of the
Talbot County Young Professionals organization.
Aukeem Cheers has been brought on to join BDK’s specialized team of technicians.
Previously working for Conifer Health Solutions and Corsica Technologies, Cheers brings a
wide range of experience in Remote Support, Customer Troubleshooting and
Hardware/Software Installation and Configuration.
In what can be described as the most profound time for IT, BDK has just one goalsimplicity.
With an ever-growing staff of professionals, Kimball and team hope to help
businesses do more with less with tech-driven solutions.
