Chris Orr has been employed by Tripwire, Inc. since September 2000. Initially hired to develop and deliver training materials for such golden oldies as Tripwire for Servers and Tripwire for Routers, he quickly moved on into the Systems Engineering group where he has been ever since. His role initially required him to provide technical assistance to regions covering 27 states and all of the Federal government, but as the company has grown His territory has been whittled down to the Pacific Northwest, Western Canada and Western Enterprise (which…when he thinks about it…is still the largest geographic territory in the company…) Currently based out of scenic Lake Stevens, WA, when not flying to such lovely places as Winnipeg or Boise, Chris is teaching his daughter how to play guitar or going on Scouting trips with his son.

クリス・ オアーは、2000 年 9 月に Tripwire, Inc. に入社しました。入社当初は、Tripwire for Servers や Tripwire for Routers などの懐かしい製品のトレーニング資料の開発およびその実施を担当していました。その後まもなく、現在所属するシステムエンジニアリンググループに異動しました。移動後の彼の職務は、27の州をカバーすると共に、すべての政府組織に対し技術支援を提供することでした。しかし、会社が成長すると、彼の担当は太平洋岸北西部、カナダ西部などの北米西部地域の企業に限定されました(それでも社内の担当範囲としては最大です)。
現在は、風光明媚なワシントン州のレイク・スティーブンスを拠点としており、ウィニペグやボイシといった美しい街に出張していないときは、娘にギターの弾き方を教えたり、息子と探検旅行に出かけたりしています。
