Our Team

Greg Van Dell, Founder/CEO

Greg Van Dell has a stellar track record of building successful products, and making major infrastructures operate smoothly. Over his 20-year career, his vast accomplishments range from overseeing banking systems integration, to leading Fortune 500 on-shore and off-shore development projects. Fluent in 20+ programming languages, he also built a live video production workflow engine as his former video software company. This same infrastructure is widely used today at national TV networks to manage and distribute reality show content.  His latest accomplishments include overseeing an enterprise-level financial system database migration, a multi-tier automated loan system with third party integration, and a NoSQL multi-media platform using MongoDB and Django. Aside from overseeing large-scale development projects, Greg is also an accomplished business leader. He expanded Engineation to a global network of 39 experts in less than 2 years without any funding.

Christie Calahan, Cofounder/CMO

Christie Calahan is a tech-savvy marketing strategist with an advertising background. After 10+ years of communications planning on Madison Avenue she migrated to Silicon Alley to help launch startup brands. Calahan met Van Dell at her former video software company, where she led all of its marketing efforts.  Building upon her agency experience working on Fortune 500 brands, she helped transform her former startup into a new cloud-based software company serving the broadcast industry. Following this success, she rebranded a well-established post-production facility and revamped marketing efforts for several mid sized businesses. Aside from helping the Engineation family grow, her industry commentary regularly appears on Engineation’s Transmission.
