It makes great sense to us—all of our employees live and breathe virtualization. These nine represent all of us, and indeed they are a cross section of what makes Tintri special. Some have been with Tintri for weeks; others from our beginnings in 2008. Several have had long careers with technology vendors; others were customers that jumped to Tintri due to a deep-seated belief in our approach.
All are united around Tintri’s mission to challenge the storage quo with a system built specifically for virtualized and cloud environments. And they all care about and contribute to the broader virtualization and storage communities. Here are our vExperts—we’re so proud!
Merlin Boissonneault—continues his vExpert streak, having recently joined Tintri as Senior Systems Engineer for Western Canada. He’s active on twitter @merlindb.
Rob Girard—this makes two years in a row for Rob, who joined Tintri’s Technical Marketing team last year after 10+ years managing virtualization from the customer side. Connect with this expert @robgirard.
Justin Lauer—continues his streak of being included on every vExpert list (that’s seven years running). He’s also one of Tintri’s earliest employees and a regular on Twitter @Justin_Lauer.
Todd Lewey—a star Sales Engineer in the Southeast, this marks a vExpert hat-trick for Todd. You can stay tuned to his ideas and musings via Twitter @tlewey.
