Tighe Fagan || The World Needs More Cowboys & So Does Wyoming
To Tighe Fagan, a University of Wyoming alumnus, the term Cowboy reflects someone who is an independent thinker and a risk-taker at heart.
Fagan earned his bachelor’s degree in computer science in 1995 followed by a master’s degree in 1998. “I received a rock-solid education that put me on par with my peers from coastal universities when I entered the workforce.”
He’s now a software engineer and partner at Gannett Peak Technical Services in Cheyenne, a company that specializes in software development and consulting. At Gannett, Fagan focuses on technical leadership and software architecture, providing enterprise software, web application and business-to-business solutions.
Fagan lives in Cheyenne with wife and three children. He’s active in the community, serving as a board member for the Cheyenne Regional Medical Center Foundation and the UW Department of Computer Science. Fagan also serves on the steering committee for the Wyoming Business Alliance and as infrastructure strategic coordinator for Forward Greater Cheyenne, in addition to being a member of Wyoming Entrepreneurs.
