“I am excited to announce that Andy, who has been a vital member of the Swarming Technology team for the past 8 years, will be taking on the role of CEO. As COO, Andy has consistently demonstrated his ability to lead the company through challenges and changes, while also playing a vital role in shaping our strong company culture. He has the trust of the team and is always someone the team and clients can count on to make decisions that are in their best interest. This transition will allow me to focus my efforts on providing the best possible technical guidance for our team and clients. The time is right for this transition, and I am confident that Andy will continue to drive the company forward and lead it to even greater success.” – Ian Baxter

Before joining Swarming Technology, Krystowiak worked at Direct Brands (a subsidiary of Perficient/Zeon Solutions), the Wisconsin Department of Transportation, and the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. Andy received his BA from UW-Madison, and his MS and MA from UW-Milwaukee. Andy’s enthusiasm for the technological advancement of e-commerce is surpassed only by his love of the Milwaukee Bucks, Milwaukee Brewers, and his wife, Germaine Krystowiak, the Chief Marketing Officer at Swarming Technology.

“Swarming has been my home and my family here in Milwaukee for the past 8 years, and I am deeply honored and humbled by the opportunity to lead our fantastic group of individuals at the highest level.”
