George Lawman – Decker Truck Line

Est. reading time: 4 mins

It’s been more than 90 years since brothers Loren and Dale Decker founded their company with a Model B Ford truck. They began by hauling items, including canned goods, plumbing fixtures, gypsum products and even windmills, throughout Iowa and adjacent states. From those beginnings in 1931, family-owned Decker has grown into three divisions—Decker Truck Line, […]

George Lawlor – Truly Nolen

Est. reading time: 4 mins

No matter what the calendar says, it’s pest season somewhere. Maybe it’s termites munching on wood-frame houses in the Southeast or mice setting up squatter’s rights in the northern buildings they entered when the mercury plunged last fall. There being 176 species of skeeters in the United States alone, they’re likely everywhere. All such vermin […]

There’s something exciting about taking up responsibilities at an essential company during a pandemic. Especially when the company is one of the nation’s seven largest railways, a Class 1 operator with revenues exceeding $12 billion. “High demand, high pressure,” is how Gary Eppinger describes his roles as vice president of IT technology and chief info-security […]

Gary Erb – Bertucci’s Restaurants

Est. reading time: 4 mins

The clock over the Bertucci’s Italian Restaurant brick pizza oven strikes 7:30. It’s smack in the middle of the usual dinner rush and you’re standing with a handful of receipts, trying to close out table checks for servers while also accepting payment for to-go meals. At that moment the point-of-sale system decides to go kaput. […]

Geneviève Bertrand – Kruger Inc.

Don’t only talk infotech with Geneviève Bertrand. She’ll be the first to acknowledge the people she oversees are better versed in its nuts and bolts, but that’s only half the business. Just as important is recognizing where IT is needed and applying it to enhance operations. That’s what she does as senior vice president of […]

Gina Ehrlich – AHEAD

Est. reading time: 4 mins

It’s easy to picture the stereotypical IT department. It’s filled with computers, servers and tech tools, and the only sounds are the clacking of keyboards and sporadic digitized beeps. It’s a quiet environment where staff are a little nerdy, but supposed geniuses. Oh, and they’re all men. Gina Ehrlich’s department at AHEAD does not look […]

Greg Streets – Fresno Economic Opportunities Commission

Est. reading time: 5 mins

With a sudden burden placed on nursing homes, food banks, homeless shelters and schools, the COVID-19 pandemic has shined a light on what it means to be essential. But it’s not just frontline employees who’ve been burdened. IT departments, too, have shouldered more responsibility, particularly as employees have transitioned to remote work in massive numbers, […]

Greg Allarding – Mansfield Energy Corp.

Est. reading time: 5 mins

Greg Allarding began his career in tech by flipping burgers. Well, actually, he’d advanced from the grills and fry vats at a McDonald’s to become an 18-year-old manager burdened by reams of paper detailing restaurant operations. It was the mid-‘80s and in those days, even if Matthew Broderick was hacking his way into U.S. Department […]

Est. reading time: 5 mins

Newly hired as CISO of Seattle Children’s in March 2019, Gary Gooden was asked to give the hospital board a 90-day assessment. Members had to be concerned with his observations.

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.
