meet me room CHRIS PLANT ATLANTIS COMPUTING Chris Plant is vice president of EMEA at Atlantis Computing and has over 18 years of experience in enterprise technology. Prior to joining Atlantis in 2011, Chris spent 10 years working at Citrix across various roles where he drove large scale implementations and managed partner sales. Early in his career, Chris studied computer programming, with a particular focus on the workspace and virtualisation space before joining the Citrix OEM channel in South Africa and then moving to join Citrix in the UK in 2001. Can you remember what job you wanted when you were a child? I certainly switched between the usual favourites regularly in my early years. 14 However, after sitting up front in a light aircraft aged four, I was certain that I wanted to become a pilot. I continued to follow aviation whilst growing up and managed to beat the bug by spending many hours airborne when I trained as a private pilot. This was before getting distracted with a career in IT and after that my aviation career took a backseat.
