Jim Copio
Manager, Whitlock Infrastructure Solutions
Carolinas LUG Leader
Operations Bridge Co-SIG Leader

In the ever-changing environment of IT, it is nice to have a constant. That constant can be a company, a product, or a person. For Vivit, we have that person in our member and Leader, Jim Copio. For 15 years, Jim has dedicated his time and talents to the Vivit organization for the enrichment of our members and for the enhancement of our User Group model. Jim is always one that will try to accommodate his schedule when asked to moderate a Vivit webinar, to represent Vivit at Micro Focus events, or to organize a Local User Group (LUG) meeting or Special Interest Group (SIG) webinar as the Carolinas LUG Co-leader and the Operations Bridge SIG Co-leader.

Most recently, Jim has contributed to several brainstorming sessions with Micro Focus around increasing support and awareness of the Vivit meetings. His experience and wealth of knowledge in the industry as a Manager at Whitlock Infrastructure Solutions (IS) has proven invaluable to Vivit. Just as he cares for his clients, Jim’s goal is to arm our members with the understanding, best practices, strategies, tools, and operational enablement to be successful.

Jim, thank you for serving our Vivit community!

Mostafa Moussavi
Test Specialist
Sweden Chapter Leader

Mostafa is the Chairman of the Vivit Sweden Chapter, HUGS, for a second year.

He has 23 years of experience in IT. Mostafa is a testing specialist with 8 years of experience with Performance Testing, Performance Test methodology and Test Automation.  Mostafa wants to be a bridge between the end users of HP Software tools and the supplier, HP.  He believes that the end user working with the HP Software tools should be able to influence the development and improvement of the tools. It serves both HP and the end user.  HP becomes aware of what users want, and the end users will get a tool that is designed for them.

Mostafa lives in a terraced house in Stockholm together with his wife, his two daughters and two rabbits. He loves to barbecue with his specially commissioned stainless steel grill that stands in the yard year round. In the winter, he will even shovel snow in order to reach the grill.
