Peter Haile

Peter Haile

Service Manager

Peter brings work experience, a positive attitude, and a degree in Network Security and Administrator from BCIT to the table. While he enjoys staying up to date with technology and can definitely talk the ‘geek’ talk, he is not your typical IT guru – Peter enjoys playing soccer, watching hockey, doing the Grouse Grind and has been known to partake in the occasional craft brewery bike tour. However, as of March 2017, Peter became a proud new father and as such his recreational activities and exercise regimes may be subject to change.


Pavol Saffo

Pavol Saffo

Technical Support Specialist

Pavol has a strong technical background and years of customer service experience. He has a masters degree from Technical University of Kosice and worked for a large international corporation there as a network engineer. He is a hard-working and creative employee which makes him an excellent trouble-shooter. During the weekends you will find him in the mountains, and when necessary, he does volunteer search and rescue with his dog Roxxy. Before he came to Westcoast IT he had a brief sabbatical from computers doing dog sledding over the artic circle.


Behnam Basiralsanayei

Behnam Basiralsanayei

Technical Support Specialist

Behnam began his academic career in the study of biology and biochemistry at Capilano University. From there, his scientific mind brought him to the position of Precinct Chief at GeekSquad Best Buy, where he led the company’s most challenging pilot projects. His success didn’t go unnoticed, and soon Behnam found himself in another leadership position at Shaw Cable, where he oversaw the nesting and training of new technical support agents. He was then a System Administrator at LinuxMagic before coming to Westcoast IT. When Behnam isn’t saving the day at Westcoast IT, he’s busy pursuing his childhood passion of martial arts, and has earned numerous achievements in territorial kick boxing championships. Go Behnam!
