Mandes Stoner


Starting his career off in economics and finance Mandes enjoyed the hustle and bustle of work, but didn’t find his passion in these areas.  However, through his experience at a financial company he was introduced to and worked closely with the IT department.  This eventually peaked his interest and having to make a tough decision he decided to take a complete 180 with career path, enrolling for his Master in ITM.  Fast forward a few years and he now has not only graduated, but has achieved multiple years of hands on experience within the IT world.

Mandes is thrilled for this opportunity to take his career to the next level with Talavant.  He is excited to work with clients, helping them accomplish their business goals by making conscious business decisions through Talavant’s specialized and comprehensive Business Intelligence strategies.

In his free time, Mandes enjoys outdoor activities such as golf and hiking with his dog.  Family and friends are extremely important to him; they will often catch a sporting event together or just gather for a day of company and laughs.
