One of our ThinkRevolution Social Super Fans, John Polanco, has hit the first level of fandom, he is now a ThinkRevolution Innovator. Congrats, John!
We want to share a little information about our Social Super Fans as they progress in their quest to become a Revolutionist, here’s what we learned about John:
So first, John’s name is actually Juan Carlos Polanco, but he goes by John Polanco J John currently lives in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic (we are so jealous!) where he is an IT Consultant (going to work isn’t so bad when you are near the beach!).
Being an IT Consultant, John has had a chance to get his hands on lots of computers! When he used to work for a local Lenovo partner he set up, upgraded and installed lots of software on a bunch of ThinkStations, which is where he got a taste for the power the systems have to offer. During his time with this Lenovo partner he also had a really cool opportunity to design some marketing and P.O.P materials, as well as edit videos and commercials for the store!
As you can imagine, working with Lenovo systems got John hooked! He’s become somewhat of a ThinkPad collector J His principal system is the ThinkPad X1 (Gen 1), but he also has a new love, the YOGA 3 Pro. In addition, John has SEVERAL systems that he still uses and has retired: a ThinkPad Tablet 2, a ThinkPad T500, a ThinkPad X100e, a ThinkPad Edge 13, a ThinkPad X31, a ThinkPad 560E, and a YOGA Tablet 2 Pro (Yep, he’s a bit of a ThinkPad hoarder, we’ll go with #GoodWeird on this one J). John generally uses Adobe applications on his ThinkPads: Adobe Photoshop (photo editing and graphic design), Adobe Audition, Adobe Premier Pro and Sony Vegas Pro (video editing). He’s looking to up his game with a Lenovo Workstation!
So, naturally, we wanted to know why John loves Lenovo so much (I mean, the guy has enough systems to run a small office!). He told us his love has grown over the years, “
“I know the history of ThinkPad well, and I remember in 2005 talking with coworkers about the reliability and durability of ThinkPads. In 2006 I started working with a local Lenovo partner and service center where I got involved with the brand. In this position I learned about the products, the company, the durability and testing of the products, as well as their commitment to innovation. I felt, and still feel, that Lenovo is getting it right by listening to their customers’ needs and innovating to meet what we need in our everyday life. You can see how they are changing the market; competitors copy Lenovo products (like YOGA Products). Because of all of this, I choose Lenovo today.”
Lastly, we ask John if there was anything else he wanted to share with us, and he threw us a curve ball!
“On Friday nights I'm a radio host, I talk about technology as it relates to family and relationships--a different way of talking about technology.” (Yep a Radio Host!! So, cool.)
We are excited John has joined ThinkRevolution as a Social Super Fan; you’ll see him posting all about Lenovo from @JuanPolanco31!
