Sean Aikin

Customer Support, 888.922.8277 x24

Before coming to Inner Fence, Sean worked in retail and customer service. His drive to help the customer in every way took him from the cubicle of a T-Mobile call center to the whole of the US — where he gathered performance data in the field on cellular networks. This experience has expanded his dedication to aid and guide the customer with whatever they are facing. For fun, Sean loves to head to the mountains, whether for hiking, mountain biking, rock climbing or snowboarding.
