Los Angeles, California
My name is Ariston Collander. I am an IT professional bringing over 10 years experience in IT systems management working in diverse and fast paced environments.
As the Systems Engineering Manager at PCV Murcor, I manage the daily workflow of the engineering team in the areas of information security, helpdesk, application and server virtualization, SAN storage, and IT asset management.
Keeping the backend systems and virtual infrastructure healthy is paramount to a successful business. Leveraging both proprietary and open source solutions, it is my job to maintain technology continuity and provide recommendations to the CIO regarding potential cost savings through the enhanced re-use of existing equipment and coordinating the assistance of respected technology vendors. My degrees in Information Technology and Information Systems as well as experience with industrial and organizational psychology have contributed to my success in bridging the gap between technology and business.
Personally, I am the father of two amazing boys. Socially I am very active with Twitter and Facebook and consider myself an early adopter of new technologies. I have a passion for mobile and social technology.
