Tom Gillihan

President


“Loving our clients and taking unbelievable care of them.” That’s how Tom describes life at the company he founded in 1997. What he enjoys most about his job is having, as he says, “the flexibility to accomplish great things for our clients.” Keeping a healthy spiritual outlook is of the utmost importance to him. For Tom, a weekend escape to a beachfront cabin with his family and a bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon is what he calls R&R.

Bill Anderson

Vice President & CTO


For Bill, as a sports bike and fly fishing enthusiast, it's all about the journey, exploring the countryside and discovering scenery that you just can't fine along the highway. That same sense of wonder moves him to work with customers to meet complex technology challenges that deliver real value. And when his work is done? It's home to indulge his other great pastime: watching his kids play sports.

When Chris needs a break from the bustle of work, you can find him in Bend biking or skiing.

The aha moment. That instant when the light bulb goes on for the customer as he’s working out technology solution for them. That’s what Geoff lives for with his customers as they work together to find just the right answer to a need or a problem. A wealth of information, Geoff is eager and well-suited to find ways to help exceed his customers’ expectations.

Aaron O'Neill

Voice Engineer


When Aaron isn’t engaged in computer programming, you may find him studiously ferreting out little-known gems from the Bible. That curiosity fuels his work here as he blends creativity with technical know-how to design complex phone systems for medium-to-large businesses and to help keep our VoIP systems the best in the industry. An avid walker, Aaron enjoys using the Tri-Met transit system and taking in the salt air at pedestrian-friendly Seaside, Oregon.

Project Manager


Paul thrives with lots of activity. This might explain his fascination with keeping everything running smoothly at work and still finding time to polish his skills at ping pong, golf, fishing and basketball.
