Revolution Networks is proud and delighted to welcome yet another experienced IT professional to our team. Tony Silva will be joining us as our new vCIO (Virtual Chief Information Officer), bringing us over 20 years of experience in IT and IT Management. He has spent many years designing and implementing support solutions for all sorts of clients – from mom and pop shops to multi-million-dollar military contracts. Tony spent several years in Portugal to pursue his IT education, and at that time he managed the IT services for an electrical company before moving on to other projects. One of these was the implementation of the Citizens Store, a one-stop shop that was the Portuguese equivalent of service Canada, where people could renew identification such as passports and health cards.
Tony then moved to Canada, where he spent his time supporting servers for HP/Compaq before becoming a consultant and implementing the networking infrastructure at CIDA. Tony has been the IT manager for Mattamy Homes, Plasco Energy group, and Wilan. After some time managing single clients, he moved on to the vCIO role, where he shifted his focus towards being the CIO for smaller companies that did not have their own IT manager or CIO. Tony has performed comprehensive IT audits and provided recommendations on how to improve IT processes to maximize ROI for clients.
Tony makes it a point to give back to others, which is a quality we at Revolution Networks highly value. He is an active board member of a local church activities group, where he helps organize and cooks for multiple festivals – some of them with over 500 attendees. He enjoys good food and drink, and also has a passion for photography as well as discovering new technologies and understanding how they can be applied to everyday life.
Welcome aboard, Tony!
