Our Leadership Team
Founder and Chief Executive Officer
With a foundation in information technology that began in the United States Navy, Matthew Strebe started his career in technology installing and managing the first optical fiber network aboard a warship. He took this prototype from ship to ship, installing systems and training staff to solve problems in extreme, high-stakes IT environments. His experience there, and in working for a subcontractor to SAIC, gave him the expertise and knowledge to create Connetic, which deploys IT solutions for businesses with military-grade thoroughness, security practices, and efficiency.
During Matt’s days as a consultant, he wrote several books on computer and network security, the business of Information Technology consulting, and advanced administration techniques for Microsoft Windows NT 4 and Windows 2000.
Yuri Risovanny specializes in blending a human touch with modern technology to deliver best-in-class end-user experience and systems management. Providing solutions that empower organizations to produce life-saving research, innovative products, and new scientific discoveries is no small feat. But the reward of seeing the work of Connetic’s clients impact the world in ways both large and small is exceptionally satisfying. This is what drives Yuri’s desire to ensure that Connetic can provide the technology necessary to unlock those opportunities. Over decades of working with many different organizations, he has learned to appreciate the unique needs and requirements of each and every client.
At Connetic, Yuri is exceptionally fortunate to be able to organize and contribute to the work of many talented and highly knowledgeable IT professionals who help make businesses work. He has personally engaged in service delivery at all levels of our organization, which has provided him with the insight required to put puzzle pieces together and solve any problem that comes his way.

Help Desk Manager
Shane Draper began his career at Connetic as a Help Desk Technician, and, within three years, was promoted to Help Desk Manager. He has spent over 15 years in IT, 10 of which have been with Managed Service Provider companies. Shane’s role as Help Desk Manager provides him with the opportunity to combine his love of technology, problem solving, and creating solutions for our clients and staff. He is a driven servant leader who takes care of his people while continuing to improve processes that directly affect our client experience.
Before transitioning to the IT career path, Shane spent eight years as a Naval intelligence analyst and then two additional years as a government contractor. During this time, he directly supported multiple warfighting operations, worked with NATO forces, and was forward deployed to Japan for three years.
Shane currently resides in western Kentucky with his wife, Megan, his two sons, and a German Shepherd named Savannah. He spends his free time volunteering with the VFW, consulting on recipes for various barbecue companies, writing cookbooks, and traveling whenever possible.
VP of Business Development
Since Wayne first joined Connetic in 2012, he has grown our client base by 15–20% per year. Wayne’s success can be attributed in part to his business philosophy, which he bases on the fundamental principles of Judo: Mutual welfare and Maximum efficiency. In practice, this means that Wayne asks very direct questions to ensure he fully understands our clients’ unique needs. He is also completely honest with clients about our model, capabilities, and limitations. Wayne believes that this honesty and forthrightness is what leads to happy employees, happy clients, and long-lasting, mutually-beneficial relationships.
Before beginning his career in sales, Wayne worked in satellite and radio-based ship-to-ship & ship-to-shore communications, and later, computer and worldwide web-based communications for the US Navy. In 1998, Wayne exited the Navy with an Honorable Discharge and began his career in Business-to-Business sales.
Outside of Connetic, Wayne is a proud father of four, loving husband, and lifelong student of Judo. He resides with his family in Oceanside, California where he enjoys hiking and ocean swimming as often as possible.
