Steve Camacho – Toronto Catholic District School Board

Talk about an accelerated timeline. In early 2020, Steve Camacho and his team had just been approved to modernize communications and  IT at the Toronto Catholic District School Board. The aim: to build the foundation for a digitally enabled school by 2022. This, he explains, by focusing on five “pillars”: increasing digital communication with both […]

Sam Ishak – FCT

For months, the COVID-19 pandemic has rocked industries around the world, hitting sports and entertainment, hospitality and tourism, and restaurants especially hard. But for technology companies like Canadian-based FCT, the global health crisis presented an opportunity to demonstrate their industry expertise and leadership. “We’re committed to ensuring a positive customer experience, even in the toughest […]

Newton Pritchett – Grenfell Campus, Memorial University

A technology provisioning adjustment necessary before the start of the next academic year at Memorial University’s Grenfell Campus on the west coast of Newfoundland, Newton Pritchett answered the call. Director of information technology services since May 2018 and a member of the team for the previous two decades, Pritchett and his team had satisfied many […]

Mike Melo – LifeLabs Medical Laboratory Services

Security breach. Two words that have become increasingly common in the digital world—and the last thing anyone in charge of cybersecurity wants to hear applied to their workplace. Companies and cities alike have fallen victim to the trend, and in its 2019 Cost of a Data Breach Report, IBM Security and the Ponemon Institute showed […]

Chris Foster – TC Energy

On a cold, snowy day on the Canadian plains, where a biting wind howls and the chill runs from the eyebrows to the toenails, teams of technicians work to ensure that the region’s myriad energy pipelines are properly maintained. It’s work that often sends them far afield to make sure there aren’t any issues or […]

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.

But the past four years, he’s been much more settled as he oversees […]

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.

Peter Parsan – Region of Peel

While the systems were functioning quite capably when Peter Parsan assumed the role of director of information technology solutions at a Canadian municipality in April 2019, his bosses saw a growing need to use IT to foster more efficiencies and service improvements for the Region of Peel northwest of Toronto. Among other priorities, Parsan was […]

Ling Huang – Technology North

It’s an outlook Ling Huang couldn’t change if he wanted to. “I look at system issues on the whole,” Ling says. “Things can be easily solved by a holistic system engineering approach.” Maybe not always so easily. After all, it’s been a decade since he first fully committed himself to helping people on the autism […]

Iftekhar Khan – Chelsea Hotel, Toronto

The hospitality industry is ever changing, even more so in recent years. While public health and travel bans have presented extraordinary challenges, hotels and other businesses are still looking for ways to separate themselves from a crowded pack.

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
