Baldomero Gutierrez – Fresnillo PLC

He’s in the homestretch of a lengthy infotech career, though Baldomero Gutierrez probably never will be one for the rocking chair. He’s too active. Plus, he’s now finding his working life at its most fulfilling, so retirement can wait another three or four years. In 2008, he was promoted to chief technology officer for Mexican […]

Bill Oliver – Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians

The flashing lights and ringing bells still let everyone know you’ve won big at the slot machine. But there are subtler ways guests benefit when they visit casinos run by the Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians, says Bill Oliver. The nation’s CIO since 2005, he’s adding features like wireless technology and easier payments, timing […]

Casey Watkins – FTI Consulting

Given the breadth of Casey Watkins’ IT career in the military and civilian life, it would be easy to say he’s seen it all. “I’ve been a cybersecurity professional for almost 20 years and have a diverse background in the field, having worked at global firms in various cybersecurity roles,” Watkins says. “I’ve amassed a […]

Charles Brown – Arkansas Department of Transportation

Maintaining some 16,000 miles of road may be easier than maintaining 16,000 lines of code. As Charles Brown recalls, the Arkansas Department of Transportation did great with its care and construction of the roads used by 3 million residents—not to mention millions of visitors using state highways to see the scenic Ozarks region. Traffic was […]

Jim Kitchen – Continental Battery Co.

As the 18-wheeler rides the ribbon of asphalt past jagged mountains and dusty sagebrush under cloudless skies, it’s an image worthy of a song. But the romance of those Western skies may be lost on employees at Continental Battery Co. They just need to know where the truck is and how the delivery to a […]

Lynn Fyhrlund – County of Milwaukee

When job seekers find a job posting they’re excited about, they might not apply if it feels slightly out of reach. For example, if the job requires five years of experience, but applicants have only four, they could feel discouraged. Or if they have a certificate or associate’s degree rather than a bachelor’s, they might […]

Matthew Henry – Child Care Aware of America

Take care of the children or earn a living? In the 1970s, a group of women in California realized that no one, regardless of their income or gender, should have to make that choice. They sought to establish child care as an imperative in the U.S.—something that would be a boon not only economically, but […]

Mike Owen – BearCom

Despite his title at BearCom, Vice President of Information Technology Mike Owen is quick to point out that he’s more than just the head of the technology department. “I’m also in the innovation department,” Owen tells Toggle in August from the company’s Garland, Texas headquarters. “We are looking at how we can take disparate systems […]

Nathan Kerns – Fareway Stores Inc.

He’s never been in a rush to use the latest infotech at Fareway Stores Inc. Shoppers probably wouldn’t like drastic changes at the Midwest grocery chain noted for personalized service, Nathan Kerns tells Toggle in June from headquarters in Boone, Iowa. A member of the tech team for over a dozen years and senior vice […]

Premjith Lakshman Singh – South Central Connecticut Regional Water Authority

It could have been a catastrophe for the owner of the rental property in Connecticut, recalls Premjith Lakshman Singh. A tenant had left the water running, and even if it didn’t cause flooding, the owner would have seen a spike in the water bill—money flowing down the drain. Instead, the property owner got an alert […]


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
