Principal Consulting Technician
Originally from Maine, Mark Stevens has been involved in the world of technology from a very young age. After earning his B.S. in Computer Science & Mathematics from Westminster College in Pennsylvania, Mark worked for several big-name tech companies in Boston including Sun Microsystems, Lucent Technologies and Cisco Systems. In 2004, Mark left the noisy hubbub of Boston for the greener pastures of Indiana. He worked as a Network & Systems Administrator at Hyndman Industrial until joining Nexus in 2013.
Mark’s day-to-day activities as Principal Consulting Technician include managing his team of technicians, designing networks and camera systems, and providing IT support to both the Sturges affiliate companies and external clients. His favorite part of his job is mentoring young technicians, especially the 20 college interns he has had the privilege to work with during this time in Indiana.
In his spare time, Mark volunteers with WeCareWarsaw and at his children’s school doing “tech stuff.” He also enjoys hosting movie nights in his self-designed basement theater.
Though he never considered himself to be an alchemist, Richard was able to transmute a large sum of money and four years into a Bachelor’s of Science degree from Indiana Tech. It was with this degree that he sought to begin his career in the exciting field of IT. He was later disappointed to learn that he had not gone into a field dedicated to the study of monster clowns, so he did computer-y stuff instead.
In what can only be described as a series of Thunderdome-like challenges, Richard joined Nexus Technology Partners. While he still fights no clowns, he wears many hats, including domain, database and network administrator – even if the hats don’t fit because his head is too big.
In his spare time, Richard wonders why life giving you lemons is a bad thing. I mean, do you want scurvy?
Željko “Jay” Antunović
A Bosnia-Herzegovina native, Jay relocated from Germany to the US in 1998. He is fluent in English and Serbo-Croatian, but a bit rusty on his German. He declared US citizenship in 2006 before earning his B.S. in Information Systems Security and A.S. in Computer Networking Systems from ITT Technical Institute. More recently, Jay acquired his certification as a U.S. Commercial Drone Pilot in 2018 to provide quality aerial footage of commercial properties for Sturges Property Group’s Brokerage Team.
Prior to joining Nexus in 2017, Jay worked as a Field Systems Technician for H&R Block where he managed the networking infrastructures & peripheral technology for over 30 locations. He was often called upon to travel to other districts to support with their technology as needed during overwhelming tax seasons.
Outside of work, Jay is constantly keeping up on the everchanging world of technology and enjoys bringing new ideas to the workplace. Jay enjoys gaming and spending time with his wife of 12 years, as well as their 2 daughters. He also is an active member of the Knights of Columbus Council #451.

His favorite part of the job is being tasked to research and produce programs based on a new concept presented to him.
