Brion C. Morris
Information Technologies Director
Brion has 24 years as an integral team member of Arizona Pipeline. He began as a coordinator in the Phoenix Division scheduling new business, new home construction, replacement and inspection work. After a very brief two and a half years, Brion left Arizona Pipeline to focus on his education. During his absence he acquired degrees in both Rudimentary Electronic Repair and Computer Science at the top of his class. In mid-2003 after his education he returned to Arizona Pipeline. Upon return, he fielded many different opportunities for Arizona Pipeline from repairing underground boring equipment to managing their warehouse, repairing underground utility detection equipment to mastering the technology infrastructure for APC. In late 2005, Brion relocated to the Corona office and began his career as the Information Technologies Manager. After working from Corona for 14 months, he relocated to Apple Valley and began managing the I.T. needs of the corporation and divisions to bring uniformity. Brion built an entirely new infrastructure so that the company could begin joining the ever-growing digital age. As Arizona Pipeline grew it became apparent that the I.T. Department needed to expand capabilities as well. Brion began the process and developed two very integral parts to the Company. Arizona Pipeline currently hosts a software support and development side as well as a hardware and deployment side. Brion was successfully able to integrate and manage this team with use of a helpdesk software allowing a complete open-door policy to all employees of APC. Shortly after, he designed and deployed a new networking and server configuration interconnecting all offices allowing them to share information globally, instantaneously and securely. After this project was completed, Brion took part in Arizona Pipeline’s search for an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software. He successfully partnered with all departments to champion and create the new standard and operating procedures for Arizona Pipeline. Brion has always stayed ahead of current technology and has been able to integrate those technologies by managing Active directory, Servers, Network, Security, end user equipment, Mobility Services and communication to apply a unified standard of operation.
Brion currently resides in Apple Valley with his wife and best friend Shannon and their children. He enjoys his family, their animals and music.
