Features April 2019

Abelardo Fuerte – Ingenios Santos

Since its first known use in Polynesia more than 3,000 years ago, cane sugar has fueled and transformed the world, sparked wars and built empires—even altered human evolution, by helping our bodies better store fat. In 2017, the world produced more than 170 million metric tons of the granulated sweetener, the per-pound equivalent of 85 […]

Carlos Silva – Volaris

It’s a high-stakes, high-reward industry where the info-tech director can barely take a breather, Carlos Silva says about the airlines. Even more so than the pharmaceutical manufacturers where he had been an IT boss for 20 years before joining Volaris, Mexico’s low-cost passenger carrier with the highest of aspirations, last April. “The big difference between […]

Fernando Thompson – Universidad de las Américas Puebla

The technology industry has been productive and satisfying for Fernando Thompson, and he’d encourage young people to give it consideration for their own good, as well as for the greater world. More on that later. At any rate, he reminds there’s no avoiding info-tech no matter what line of work today’s students choose, and their […]

Jill Maple – HOMEBANK

Jill Maple compares entering HOMEBANK to walking into an Apple store or another high-touch customer service environment. Customers don’t just step in, stand in line and file one-by-one to the teller. Instead, banking representatives welcome each customer up to their “pods” where the two can stand side by side. There’s no physical barrier separating them, […]

Kevin Blanchard – Bassett Furniture

Like many manufacturers and retailers, Bassett Furniture has been launched into the new digital economy. Customers, it seems, expect retailers to meet them at the de facto common ground of the 21st century: online. For the 117-year-old furniture manufacturer, that meant finding someone who understood not only data and computers, but how technology impacts every […]

Maxim Budyansky – Avitus Orthopaedics

It wasn’t exactly a “Eureka!” moment. Being a lifelong engineer, Maxim Budyansky knew what those felt like. Still, for him and cofounder Neil Shah, there was a recognition that the techniques and technologies being used for bone grafting needed an update. This surgical procedure uses healthy bone to repair breaks and fractures elsewhere in the […]

Michael Loggins – SMC Corp. of America

It’s a simple enough goal Michael Loggins espouses in his role as info-tech director at SMC Corp. of America, the U.S. division of the Japanese heavyweight for pneumatic control engineering in support of industrial automation. “Our job is to make people awesome,” the personable Loggins tells Toggle in February, several months after commencing a project […]

Troy Hardeman – Ceannate Corporation

There is always a seat available at Troy Hardeman’s technology table. In his mind, it’s the best place to have people sit down and talk it out, because face-to-face interaction is the fastest way to get even the most complicated projects done. Regulations. Legacy systems. Data migration to the clouds. Hardeman, an IT veteran with […]

Testimonials

Alliant is very pleased with our experience working with the TrueLine Publishing team. We were not only impressed with the caliber of the whitepaper that was produced, but with the level of attention from the team we partnered with. They were very detailed oriented and I appreciated their follow up. They even offered to refresh the article and invited Alliant to participate in some of the design features. It is without reservation that I highly recommend other businesses partnering with this publication and I look forward to an opportunity to work with them again in the future.
— Katie Patterson, Director of Marketing, Alliant Technologies
