Rod Mac Kenzie-Shannon
Chief Deployment Officer
Rod has 25+ years of large scale systems and has deployed systems for Heathrow Airport, the Government of Malta, banks in Russia, London and Portugal amongst others. He has held the roles of Release Manager, Technical Support Manager, DBA, Test Manager and Configuration Manager sometimes simultaneously. He also spent 4 great years working with Carlos Araya as Artinsoft Global Director of Services.
Rod gets satisfaction from ensuring customers enjoy robust, reliable, available systems that meet their needs consistently. He is the primary guardian of the live environments. It would be fair to say he is not one of the organisations 'blue sky thinkers' preferring to keep his feet firmly grounded in proven process.
An avid reader of all things technical, Rod enjoys his motorcycle (dry days only!) and sometimes wrestles with a guitar. Like Donal, Rod likes cars and has actually driven the Batmobile (Adam West), the Pink Panther Car and innumerous super cars and super bikes.
