Welcome to the Team!

Please help us welcome Ian Brown to our Chicago team!

It is always nerve-racking coming into a new company and trying to break the ice. Ensuring that new employees feel comfortable is crucial to building a positive transition within a company. We thought it would be fun to ask Ian a few questions to get to know him a little better.

Let’s get started!

Q: What is your official work title?

A: Systems Support Specialist

Q: Can you tell us more about your professional experience/ history?

A: I use to work for AnyMeeting as their Technical Support Specialist.

Q: What do you like to do outside of work?

A: I play music with friends, practice martial arts, cook, read, and study. I also play chess, albeit terribly.

Q: What are your greatest travel experience?

A: A jazz combo I was in was hired to play a few fancy to-dos around the country. One was in L.A., where we stayed in the famous ‘riot house’ hotel on Sunset Blvd, played a party inside the Director’s guild (with free drinks), and had ample opportunity to enjoy the nightlife and beaches. All expenses paid, of course.

Now on to the more personal questions.

Q: Favorite movie?

A: Alfred Hitchcock’s Vertigo

Q: Guilty pleasure music artist?

A: Eazy-E

Q: What is something that inspires you?

A: The chaotic energy of the city. It’s 2.7 million people, from the lowliest beggars to the highest paid CEOs all living together in the same place. It’s the rhythm of the train, packed to the brim as it throws you around inside the car. It’s walking in a pack of people on the streets, all focused on their path and each with their own destinations and goals. It all reminds me of the fast-paced and jagged rhythms of bebop. The city itself is alive!

Q: What would you say your professional goal would be now that you are employed at Percipia?

A: ? To become an IP-PBX guru, performing feats of computing wizardry scarcely dreamed of by mere mortals.   

Well there you have it! We are so happy to have Ian join the team and contribute to the success of Percipia.
