Erik Fritsch – Versova

The latest high-tech augmented reality glasses may be the last thing one would expect to see at egg farms in Iowa and Ohio. But when something needs repair or deeper insight at Versova, employees can now slip on the problem-solving eyewear. As if by magic, a supervisor—located anywhere—can connect and guide the project from afar, […]

Gary Upton – Sage Automotive Interiors

In a plant in Marietta, South Carolina, miles of fabric methodically turn around large spools in the world of automotive fabric manufacturing. In years past a person would be tasked with spotting minute defects of thread, lint or color. Requiring patience, dedication and deep concentration, it was a time-consuming job to make sure the quality […]

David Hayes – Englert Inc.

Upon commencing with the duties of the office of CIO for his new employer in June 2018, David Hayes didn’t know that family-owned Englert Inc. was being positioned for sale. Its credentials as a national roofing and gutter heavyweight based in Perth Amboy, New Jersey, were well established, but as Hayes soon realized, something stood […]

Daniel Fields – Enviro Safety Products

When he was 11, Daniel Fields welded a brush shredder to an old three-wheeler to clear brush on his family’s farm. It made the chore much easier, he remembers, but not all his time-saving endeavors worked so well—he almost lost some fingers. Today, that knack for experimentation and creative problem-solving is strong as ever for […]

Dan Zalacain – Genuine Parts Company

Dan Zalacain thinks back to his early days in IT at Macy’s a decade ago. Back then, a technology crisis could erupt into a 4 a.m. conference call with a hundred programmers scratching their heads to understand what’s wrong and the fastest way to fix it. Work-life balance? It didn’t exist. But Zalacain, who joined […]

Donald Aslett – Air T Inc.

It only seems like a long time ago when so much of the infotech of Air T Inc. was contained in a single-server closet in a hillside airport in rural North Carolina. That was less than a decade ago, when Donald Aslett was consulted for some long-overdue IT upgrades. But the executive team at Air […]

Hector Cantu – Grupo Villacero Mexico

His letterhead still says CIO but Hector Cantu would like to see another letter added, that being a P. That’s P as in process, for the role of chief information officer is evolving, and maybe nowhere faster than at Grupo Villacero Mexico. That’s the country’s largest company dedicated to marketing, transformation and logistics 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 […]

Jeff Smedley – J&J Worldwide Services

A military hospital’s primary mission being the treatment of soldiers and veterans, it must stretch every dollar and can’t afford inefficiencies. Certainly not in the operation of physical facilities. So reminds Jeff Smedley, the CIO and vice president of J&J Worldwide Services, the Austin, Texas-based company that’s the largest privately held operations and maintenance contractor […]

Eric Frisch – Corsa Coal Corporation

How refreshing, Eric Frisch thought upon moving into his new position as director of IT at Corsa Coal Corp. last March. A chance to revisit some hard info-tech skills he had honed while working as a director for his previous employer of five years, Rice Energy Inc., just across town in Canonsburg, Pennsylvania. In due […]

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.
