Jeff Gallimore is a Partner and Co-founder at Excella, a 300-ish-person IT consulting firm based in Arlington, VA. Jeff started his career as a developer and DBA then turned to the dark side by going into management. Now he lives vicariously through other engineers and reminisces about the good ol’ days when he spent most of his time in a code editor and command line rather than Outlook and Excel. Jeff currently leads Excella’s Services team building the firm’s capabilities, leading its innovation activities, and managing its go-to-market offerings. He’s also active in the DevOps community as a writer, speaker, organizer of DevOpsDays DC, and advisor to IT Revolution. Regardless of the role, Jeff keeps a passion for technology and how it can be used to help organizations win in the marketplace and people find joy in their work.
