Darlene Clapham – York Catholic District School Board

Her primary responsibility may be ensuring reliable and secure infotech at a Canadian school district, but Darlene Clapham isn’t one to silo herself in education. IT being such an evolving subject, she’s always looking for new insight while sharing her own. “I’ve always had this philosophy that if you want to learn about other industries, […]

Barry MacTavish – Thompson Dorfman Sweatman LLP

Over the years, Barry MacTavish admits he’s driven his wife Sandy crazy with his hobby. Spoiler alert: it’s not betting on the ponies, or buying exotic cars. Often, when dinner’s being served or when it’s late enough to be in bed, he’s tearing apart his computer, testing programs and reading the latest technology research. “I’ve […]

Angela Copeland – Toronto Public Library

In the early stages of the COVID-19 pandemic, Angela Copeland and her colleagues at the Toronto Public Library knew that, while they couldn’t change the situation everyone was in, they could offer a tried-and-true comfort: books. Copeland, the library’s director of digital strategy and CIO, accelerated the organization’s plan to create digital access cards for […]

Joe Abidaoud – Weston Foods

Most of us buy staples like bread and milk from supermarkets and groceries, but these stores need to purchase their goods from somewhere, too. Often enough, Weston Foods provides baked goods, from cakes and scones to loaves of bread, and Joe Abidaoud’s team puts the technology in place to make ordering easy. Since joining Weston […]

Roy Hart – British Columbia Institute of Technology

Some people don’t interact with IT until they have a technology problem. Roy Hart knows his department has more to offer, though, and he’s spent the past few years changing the perception of what it does. As the CIO at British Columbia Institute of Technology, he’s fostered relationships across campus to show the value of […]

Robert Schulz – Interfor

Rob Schulz has always been one to see the forest for the trees— literally. After graduating from the University of Victoria with his Bachelor of Science in Geography in 1992, he joined Coast Forest Management Consultants. There, he designed roads and bridges to be used for logging, and he measured how much usable timber a […]

Rod Schatz – McElhanney

On the surface, consulting and direct sales have little in common. Both, however, rely on a pitch—and staff expertise. For the Vancouver based firm, McElhanney, that pitch (and expertise) is project support from the planning to the construction stage, in industries from civil engineering and geomatics to landscape architecture and environmental consulting. In fact, many […]

Marc Knoop – Traffix

There’s a pit stop coming for Traffix, the largest provider of freight arrangement services in Canada. As Chief Technology Officer Marc Knoop explains, that doesn’t mean trucks are coming off the road. Instead Traffix is introducing PitStop, a new portal that can be used by customers, carriers and staff to share details about shipments, invoices […]

Doug Liddell – NorthRiver Midstream Inc.

Configuration over customization. Done with the right people, it’s a game plan for efficiency. So says Doug Liddell, who’s done much of it since being hired in late 2018 to build IT infrastructure at a new Western Canadian midstream energy company. NorthRiver Midstream Inc., based in Calgary, is the result of Toronto-based Brookfield Asset Management […]

Yvonne Holland – Kinaxis

Imagine you work at a supply chain management company, helping global manufacturers respond to volatility in the markets. Disruption of any kind—like a slow computer of not having access to the right information—can put a dent in profitability. So when the disruptions happen, you’d better get help—fast! So says Yvonne Holland, the company’s vice president […]

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
