Chris Swinney

Chris SwinneyInitially trained as an Engineer then as an IT professional, I now have over 25 years’ experience within this field, specialising in Videoconferencing and Unified Communications (for the last 10 years), and networked Windows environments previously. In addition to my technical background, I also qualified as a teacher, which aids in understanding how people learn, develop, and interact with technology.

As part of the Technical Support team at Pexip since 2015, we help our customers resolve highly technical issues with their communication infrastructure, analysing and troubleshooting complex interoperability issues around SIP, H.323 and WebRTC, along with providing guidance on API and other integrations. As a team, we provide what I like to think of as the “Gold Standard” for support within this industry. We are dedicated, knowledgeable, fast, accurate, and above all, approachable and motivated to help our customers achieve the best they can with our awesome product.

I have developed a passion, nay obsession, for this technology and how it can be leveraged to enhance communication and collaboration between users and organisations. I am an excellent problem solver with a strong desire to inspire, help and educate others to get the best value and experience from our collaboration tools. As a technical trainer within Pexip, I get to share this passion and knowledge with you, making the courses fun and informative the only way I know how – the Pexip way.

Working with that for a year I got assigned to help a customer to install my first Tandberg endpoint and after that I was hooked. 8 years later after installing and building a lot of different Tandberg/Cisco infrastructures and a big SP environment for Teliacompany, I joined Pexip in 2014.

My current role is a Solutions Architect in the EMEA region with a focus on the nordics.

 

 

Krzysztof Grzeslo

Krzysztof GrzesloMy ICT career began at the age of 10, after building my first (working) transistor radio. Since then my interests expanded and beyond electronics and radio I chose an interdisciplinary path to cover many areas from computer hardware and software to telecommunications. This allowed me to dive into data communications and follow the expansion of the Internet.

The choice of video communications has been a natural evolution of these interests.

Favourite Pexip Feature: Audio+presentation mode of the My Meeting Video (MMV) client that allows me to attend meetings with my mobile on-the-go with high-quality audio.

After the merge between Pexip and Videxio, my current role in Pexip is as a Senior Director for the Solutions Architect team in EMEA.
