Meet Dave Swift – Mintivo’s Technical Director

Dave is a master of all things technical and originally came to Mintivo as a Senior Technical Consultant and has since joined the Board of Directors to become the firm’s Technical Director.

Dave has a wealth of experience and specialises in providing technical solutions to clients. As with all the Mintivo team, Dave strives to understand clients’ exacting business needs and architects secure, reliable IT solutions. Whether it is infrastructure design, implementation and management or support for all aspects of business-critical computing – servers, storage, networking, connectivity, security and software, Dave is well-placed to provide direction.  

Dave, a Microsoft Certified Professional, lives in Westbury with his fiancée, Lydia and their Miniature Dachshund, Frank. From a young age, Dave was often found with a screwdriver in hand taking things apart to investigate how they worked. His love of IT developed, and he knew he wanted a career in IT following an exciting and engaging work experience placement at a Trowbridge-based computer shop when he was 16.

When Dave became Technical Director, he commented that “Working for Mintivo has been amazing and to be asked to join the Board and take over from Chris Gough as Technical Director was an honour. I am looking forward to building on the firm foundations Chris has built and to ensure Mintivo continues to understand current and future IT trends and to develop and deliver solutions that really add value to our clients.”

When not working at Mintivo, Dave enjoys listening to Classic Rock and Blues music and is very interested in cars. He can also play the banjo!  

I asked Dave why he believed Mintivo was different to the other IT firms he has worked for. He said “It’s really cliché, but being part of such an engaged, enthusiastic and talented team that really work well together means that Mintivo deliver the right solutions and support. It’s great to get feedback from end-users, especially after a detailed project when they tell you that you’ve made a massive change to their daily lives!!”
