Features June 2020

Bill Swift – Brierley

Times have been tough in the auto rental market, why with fewer people traveling amid the threat of a pandemic and even fewer needing temporary wheels. On a related note, the hospitality business hasn’t been buzzing either; many hotels and resorts are just now reopening after months of COVID-induced inactivity. Same goes for retailers, so […]

Bobby Applegate – Cucamonga School District

Imagine you’re in middle school and your teacher says it’s time to study ancient Egypt. Moments later, you find yourself descending the sandy steps into King Tut’s tomb in the Valley of the Kings. Or maybe your science teacher says it’s time to check out the inside of an erupting volcano. Shortly after, you see […]

Brad Hagg – Warsaw Community Schools

If you turn back the calendar to January 2020, Brad Hagg’s plans to improve the technology at Warsaw Community Schools in Indiana seem pretty mundane now. Topping the list: replacing the aging classroom projectors, followed by upgrading the elementary school computer labs. While that was occurring, Hagg, the district’s chief technology officer, planned to continue […]

Chris Barnes – Howard LLP

Though info security is his profession, Chris Barnes has taken on a decidedly non-technological endeavor on behalf of his employer, the Dallas-based accounting and advisory firm Howard LLP. Chief technology officer since late 2018 and a member of the Howard IT staff for 14 years, it’s not as if Barnes didn’t have a lengthy to-do […]

Darrell Riekena – Republic National Distributing Company

Finding ways to operate as a wholesale distributor during a pandemic is something Republic National Distributing Company (RNDC) happens to be experienced with, having cut its teeth during the days of Prohibition. Times have changed, and so too have the processes of delivering alcohol nationwide for one of the country’s largest distributors of wine and […]

David Almond – Alberta Innovates

He’ll be among the many participants at this June’s Inventures Unbound, an annual gathering of creative minds that will be conducted virtually instead of at a convention center in Calgary. But that’s OK with David Almond, the new executive director of IT at Alberta Innovates, a Canadian Crown corporation that’s publicly funded but largely free […]

James Webb – West Texas A&M University

When four West Texas A&M students were part of Super Bowl LIV in Miami in February 2020, they took Buffalo pride with them to the big game. Only they weren’t in shoulder pads or helmets. Rather, they were there to help the 62,400 fans leverage the newest Wi-Fi technology to make the game come—and stay—alive. […]

Jim Dutcher – Broome County

It may seem a small county tucked away in New York along the Pennsylvania border, but Broome County government has pretty big tech needs, says CIO Jim Dutcher. “We have such a diverse set of customers and end users,” he says. “We need to be as nimble and as agile as any high-tech company you […]

Manik Mahajan – Berkshire Hathaway Specialty Insurance

Some things are better done at home, although Manik Mahajan has needed to travel the world to know that’s true. Once a consultant, he helped insurance companies implement software, integrate legacy systems and IT platforms, and that took him around the globe. But the past four years, he’s been much more settled as he oversees […]

Marcy Good – Mithun

When Marcy Good accidentally left a copy of her resume at a printer in her mother’s office, it turned out to be a move that changed her life. Just out of college, Good was home for the summer figuring out what was next. When the office’s IT director Quentin Murphy spotted her resume, the man […]

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
