Colin Joynt – Kite Realty

During a wide-ranging interview with Toggle earlier this fall, Colin Joynt fielded dozens of questions relating to his role as senior vice president of IT for Indianapolis-based Kite Realty: about the gamut-running career that preceded his 2015 arrival and about the bevy of big-ticket initiatives he and his team are now spearheading. There was one […]

Forrest Wagner – The Staffmark Group

There’s work to be done, and with unemployment at a 50-year low, employers are scrambling to find people to fill jobs. But going to work is not what it was 50 years ago. Careers with one employer are a rarity, and a growing number of people—and employers—prefer remote work and short-term commitments. So while not […]

Eddie Etsey – University of Iowa Athletics

It’s game day at the University of Iowa and the Hawkeyes are nationally ranked and primed to play at Kinnick Stadium. The smell of grilled burgers fills the air as fans fill the parking lot in their black and gold gear, lounging outside RVs or tossing a football around before kickoff. University of Iowa Athletics […]

Dennis Rausch – Rea Magnet Wire

Most of us could never conceive of the incredible amounts of data amassed in the manufacturing of wire. But because Rea Magnet Wire’s products are used in intricate, high-functioning capacities—such as car motors, transformers and electrical substations—every inch is tracked, measured and inspected, and those tens of thousands of data points are uploaded and shared […]

Bruce Emrick – The Garland Company

Today, talk of the cloud saturates just about every IT conversation. But in 2008? Not so much. Back then, most companies were still getting familiar with a concept that wouldn’t take root for another five years, let alone be adopted. Not so for The Garland Company, which in that year was already migrating its infrastructure […]

Hassan Asghar – Bremer Bank

Having committed to a technological upgrade in April 2017, St. Paul-based Bremer Bank hired Hassan Asghar as senior vice president and chief information security officer, putting the Pakistan-born and Pakistan- and U.S.-educated Asghar in charge of the information security program. A couple of years later a multipronged strategy has four major components in place, heightening […]

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, […]

Ryan Wooley – Hawken School

Let’s say a class is studying a sophisticated set of math equations, or interpreting a piece of art. At the start of the lesson, each student pulls out a tablet computer, which is touchscreen and stylus-based, allowing students to write on their screens and zoom in or out with multi-touch. Everything on the tablet is […]

Joe Phillips – Kansas City Public Schools

Balloons, deflated balloons and rocks. These are the three types of people in an organization, says Joe Phillips. “Since the direction you’re always trying to go is up, you want people who are balloons,” he says. “You want employees who are aligned with the overall vision and actively working toward the upward push.” Deflated balloons, […]

Rahoul Ghose – ECMC Group

At the nexus of business, technology and education is where Rahoul Ghose said he always wanted to be—and that’s exactly where he has landed. Coming on board as CIO of Minneapolis-based ECMC Group last summer, Ghose assumed responsibility for overall IT strategy and delivery—in addition to helping evolve the culture of the IT department—at the […]

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
