Wendy Gay

Mum, techie and multitasker…. I am a citrate and love to play with tech when I get time. I have worked in IT for over 20 years and am working at Citrix for almost three years.  I started my IT career working for Microsoft with NT 4.0!   I have worked with many different technologies and spent the last 15 years working on lots of different versions of Citrix technologies (from Citrix Metaframe 1.8 through to Citrix Cloud).

David Pisa

I am a Field Architect at Citrix and I love playing with all kinds of technologies. I’ve been working in IT since computer Jurassic era. WinFrame were roaming freely on Windows NT.
I am curious and eager to learn how things work.
My job is complex, and I love it. It is not just technology. It is how we use and configure it. It is listening and understand customer needs to translate them in a blueprint. It is sharing knowledge and experience with customers, partners, and colleagues.
