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. Once a consultant, he helped insurance companies implement software, integrate legacy systems and IT platforms, and that took him around the globe. 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. But that’s OK with David Almond, the new executive director of IT at Alberta Innovates, a Canadian Crown corporation that’s publicly funded but largely free […]

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. As director of IT for the Chelsea Hotel, Toronto, it’s Iftekhar Khan’s job to research, evaluate, recommend, […]

Gord Helm – Fourth State Energy

“Garbage” is a catch-all term. But take a look at your own trash, or the mountainous landfills that have piled up over time and you’ll see that trash is not homogenous, and its contents are in no way created equal. Garbage changes weekly, seasonally and geographically, and it is composed of vastly different products and […]

Pierre-Andre “Pete” Vungoc – LXRandCo

Maybe it’s the handbag you always wanted. Maybe it’s the hottest accessory in this year’s designer fashions. Either way, it’s pricey; way beyond your budget as it shimmers in a store window or as an elusive online image instead of over your shoulder. But it may not be that elusive as recommerce takes hold, matching […]

Matthew Lewis – Dealnet Capital

As any home or business owner eventually learns—often-times the hard way—big-ticket fixtures and appliances aren’t built for eternity. And rarely does one have the foresight to budget in advance for, say, a furnace about to burn out in the dead of winter or central air conditioning that’s breaking down just as the first heat wave […]

Darcy Boyer – Ranch Ehrlo Society

He considers himself a builder, and the project that Darcy Boyer undertook in early 2018 just might prove to be the most consequential of his professional life. For in what might be the last stop in an infotech career of over 30 years in Western Canada, Boyer has been making and upgrading the systems of […]

Alan Sealey – DLH Group

It’s the middle of February in Alberta, and the 18-wheeler you’re driving needs to stay ahead of a massive winter storm moving in just a few miles behind you. Suddenly, you see a “check engine” light flash on the dashboard, which could mean anything from routine maintenance to critical failure. Had this happened a few […]

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
