COSHOCTON – Andrew Conidi has always had a passion for computers. Now, he is able to turn his passion into a career in his hometown of Coshocton.

“I’ve always had a passion for computers,” said Conidi. “Ever since I was about 12, I’ve been working on computers. It’s something that’s constantly evolving. There’s always something new to learn, some new technique.”

After he returned to Coshocton, Conidi started working at Auer Ace Hardware.

“Everything just kind of worked out,” said Conidi. “I had the opportunity to come back and work at Auer Ace Hardware after college. Tom Edwards tried to help me find a job.”

Conidi then started working as an accountant at Bradford and Associates. It was while working there that he saw a need for an IT business in the community.

“While working in the community doing accounting work, it became apparent there was a need for a local IT company, which is when I decided to start Synced Consulting,” said Conidi. “We primarily do IT work for businesses like server and desktop administration, phone systems, and just recently getting into security systems.”

Conidi graduated from Coshocton High School in 2006 and then went on to attend Kent State University. During his first two years of college, Conidi majored in computer science and then transitioned into accounting. In 2010, he graduated with his bachelor’s degree.

Synced Consulting started in 2011 and has now grown to two full time employees and an intern. Thankfully, they have had a tremendous amount of support from the community and now serve many local and surrounding county companies.

“I’m thankful for all the support we’ve had in the community and people helping me along the way has been a very nice thing,” said Conidi.

Conidi and his wife Ashley, a 2007 River View graduate, are happy to be able to come back to their hometown.

“My wife, Ashley, and I are very happy that we have been able to settle down in our hometown and that we can continue to be a part of this great community,” he said.
