Joe Kafka Joins the BIT Team!

Joe Kafka, BIT’s newest Point of Contact/Project Manager, recently started in the Kneip Building in Pierre. Joe will be working with five smaller agencies, as well as managing a number of projects in the future. His primary agencies will be Legislative Audit,  Legislative Research, Bureau of Administration, SD Retirement and the State Investment Council.  Joe is excited to engage within BIT and assist agencies with logical, intuitive solutions to their IT needs.

Joe is a family man, first and foremost. He spends a majority of his free time at home with his wife, Tia, and his sons Gavin (6) and Aiden (6 months). He is slowly readjusting to life with an infant and loves the noticeable lack of diapers at BIT. He met his wife during college and moved with her to Minneapolis in 2008.

After a few years living in Minnesota, they decided that the open pastures of South Dakota were beckoning them home. Before BIT, Joe worked at Revenue & Economic Development. He’s genuinely enjoyed his time working in state government and looks forward to working with another great group of individuals.

In his free time, he enjoys camping, hiking, disc golfing, snowboarding, and a good cup of coffee. He’s also one of those freakish people who love snow and cold, so try not to hold it against him if you see him smiling on the blustery days.

Take the time out of your day to introduce yourself and welcome Joe into this great organization!
