Dear friends and colleagues, 

I am very excited to announce that ZWARM is joining Proof+Geist. We have been working with ZWARM’s founder, Dirk Reynolds, for over a year now, and we love what Dirk has done with ZWARM and admire the care and attention he gives his customers. We are thrilled that Dirk has decided to come on board as an invaluable full-time member of our team.

I’d also like to welcome everyone in the ZWARM universe to the Proof+Geist family and hope you will join us as we continue this journey together. As I’m sure you’ve experienced, Dirk is a brilliant technical mind, and we’re excited to see what he can do, backed by the full resources of the Proof+Geist team. We know that Dirk cares deeply about the people he works with, and we hope that as you join the Proof+Geist family, you’ll find that our team also holds this value dear.

Rest assured that Dirk will remain your point of contact and advisor – what will change is that you may see some other faces come on board to help, provide backup, and allow Dirk to take an offline vacation from time to time. 

If you are unfamiliar with Proof+Geist, we are a Claris Platinum Partner that helps people solve business problems through custom web and FileMaker development, cloud infrastructure services via Ottomatic, including FileMaker hosting, and professional developer tools such as Otto, FMPerception, and SimpleQ.

Above all, we are a company of curious people who want to do good work, together. That’s one of the reasons I am so excited about having Dirk onboard—he shares our passion for solving problems for and with people.
