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 […]

Abhijeet Bhandare – GE Power

This is Olive. Olive is an expert at creating purchase orders for the sourcing department. While you’re here, take a moment to meet Catherine. She reviews documents from hundreds of suppliers for incorrect delivery dates and other discrepancies. Oh, and we can’t forget Amy, who provides real-time chat support to employees across the company. Each […]

Garth Nel—Dover Food Retail

“Don’t follow the sheep,” Garth Nel advises when asked what he’d tell young people pursuing a technical career. “Make sure you’re visible, drive change and engage with the business.” With info-tech being such an essential and evolving industry, Nel warns it’s no place for its practitioners to stand still. Nel sure hasn’t stayed stationary, beginning […]

Neil Goodrich – M. Holland

He calls himself a problem solver, but after a friendly chat with Neil Goodrich, one gets the impression that the energetic man might be selling himself at least a little bit short. For the 42-year-old chief information officer at M. Holland may be more of an issues anticipator. And what value there is to anticipating—and […]

David DiLeo – Industrial Scientific

Canaries can be grateful to Industrial Scientific, the Pittsburgh company that long ago spared them the hazardous and involuntary duty of detecting toxic gases in coal mines. That gratitude can be shared by the countless men and women whose occupations carry them underground or anywhere else where the air might be tarnished by unhealthy and […]

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
