Panelist Bio

Noah Boudreaux
COO, Sparkhound IT Services Company

Noah Boudreaux is the Chief Operating Officer of Sparkhound, one of the nation’s fasting growing technology companies in the country.

Noah started his IT career over 14 years ago with a degree in Computer Science and a passion for solving problems. After working for Appro Systems for several years as an accomplished Systems Engineer, he moved to a position as Data Center Team Lead, and eventually Delivery Manager for Equifax, Inc. During his tenure there, he worked with some of the largest and most respected financial firms in the country such as BMW Financial, Regions Bank, Bank of America and Capital One in order to manage a variety of software delivery and implementation projects.

In 2005, Noah decided to branch into a Business Consulting role at Sparkhound, working closely with the company's enterprise-level customers with a focus on operational efficiencies. Then, in 2008, Noah accepted an offer to become Vice President of Operations (Louisiana) when Sparkhound's growth and desire to pursue a broader vision necessitated a new organizational structure. As Vice President of Operations, Noah led all of Louisiana's operational practices, focusing on quality delivery and a customer experience second to none.

After a successful tenure as VP of Operations, Noah's leadership granted him the opportunity to become Sparkhound's Chief Operating Officer (COO) in 2013. As COO, Noah oversees operation of the entire organization, helping VP's in all markets achieve their visions for success. He also has direct line of sight to Sparkhound's Support Services arm, which provides national IT support for customer's infrastructure and applications. Partnering with Sparkhound's president and chief sales officer, Noah brings his perspective of operational and customer service excellence, along with a passion for an engaged workforce to the senior leadership team.

Noah has been married to Christina for five years, and they have two daughters, Ava and Addisyn. He is a graduate of Southeastern Louisiana University and is devoted to his continued growth as a leader for the organization. Additionally, Noah participates in the following organizations and programs:
• Association of Information Technology Professionals
• Louisiana Technology Council
• International Association of Microsoft Certified Partners
• Franklin Covey 4DX Evangelist/Enthusiast

Current Topic

     12/18 - News About the News (Encore)

How can viewers distinguish between fact and fake news and is social media blurring the difference?
According to the 2018 Louisiana Survey, when it comes to trusting news organizations, more Louisiana residents put their faith in local media than national media outlets. Despite that trust, only 36 percent of the state’s news consumers say local news deals fairly with both sides.

So, why is there so much mistrust of the news media? Where are consumers primarily getting their news? How can viewers distinguish between fact and fake news and is social media blurring the difference? Louisiana Public Square looks for answers to these questions and more on a special encore presentation of “News about the News” airing Wednesday, December 26 at 7pm on LPB and in New Orleans on WLAE.
