Andy Whiteside

CEO and Founder

Andy founded XenTegra in 2012 based on the idea that Citrix customers deserved a partner that focused on Citrix solutions as their primary business focus. Andy graduated from North Carolina State University in 1997. Before founding XenTegra, Andy spent over a decade as a Systems Administrator, two years as Microsoft Directory Services Support Engineer, three years as a Citrix Consultant and four years as a Citrix Senior Sales Engineer. Andy has received many awards for his service including the Citrix Sales Engineer of the Year award in 2010. Andy’s experience helping customers ranges from working with large universities, enterprises, medium and small businesses. Focusing on end-user computing that originates from the datacenter has been a focus for Andy for the past eight years. Enabling the Citrix community has been a priority for Andy over the past five years and founding XenTegra has given him a way to continue to do this.
