Gary Upton – Sage Automotive Interiors

In a plant in Marietta, South Carolina, miles of fabric methodically turn around large spools in the world of automotive fabric manufacturing. In years past a person would be tasked with spotting minute defects of thread, lint or color. Requiring patience, dedication and deep concentration, it was a time-consuming job to make sure the quality […]

Michael Dent – Fairfax County Government

He doesn’t have to look far for a reminder of what can happen when a municipality lets down its cybersecurity safeguards. For just this past spring, Baltimore was held virtual hostage, its computer systems hacked by the ransomware RobinHood. While Maryland’s biggest city may be commended for refusing to pay the hackers $75,000 in untraceable […]

Tom Cranmer – Richland School District Two

Richland School District Two may not have landed on primetime, but its own domestic version of ABC’s Shark Tank show is creating an educational frenzy of sorts. Dubbed R2 Innovates, the innovation incubator allows educators to support and fund promising new practices aimed at solving multifaceted problems. Around 28,000 students and faculty receive broad-based community […]

Matthew Bellman – MYOLYN

“I wish you could build me a new body.” These words, the wistful thoughts of his mother, have always stuck with Matthew Bellman. When he was growing up, she was stricken with cancer twice—and beat it twice—but both ordeals took a major toll on her body. While he’s not at the point of rebuilding entire […]

Ryan Miller – Mission Search

Back in his Army days as a heavy vehicle operator, Ryan Miller was used to scanning his environment for hidden explosives and doing risk assessments to intercept threats. Out of uniform now as chief information security officer at Mission Search Staffing and Recruitment, an employment agency in Tampa, Miller sees a lot of parallels between […]

Luis Ramon Ramos – Sura Insurance

After years of hard work, you’re finally earning enough to purchase your dream car: a brand new Mercedes-Benz S-Class. And a hefty insurance policy to go with it. But despite paying the premiums, you notice that the materials the insurance company is sending—policy updates, special offers for insuring a second car—aren’t exactly speaking to you. […]

Chris Smallen – Lenoir City School District

Some students are using 3D printers to retrofit vehicles for disabled individuals—installing brake and gas pedals on steering wheels, for example, or ensuring that seats are molded in such a way that occupants can safely remain upright. Others students are working with local businesses to develop their online marketing, or they’re helping fellow students when […]

Scott Pierce – Kingsport City Schools

He may not get out of the data center as much as he’d like, but when seeing firsthand the effects of his role during occasional classroom visits, Scott Pierce can further vindicate his long-ago decision to shift careers from teaching to technology. “It’s very rewarding to see an economically disadvantaged child who has never traveled […]

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 […]

Tom Smith – Triad Radiology Associates

It happens every day, in clinics and emergency rooms around the country: People fall through the cracks. A man injured in a car crash who, years later, learns he has late-stage kidney cancer which went undetected in the post-accident scans. A woman whose mammogram follow-up never gets scheduled because of a clerical error. Fifteen years […]

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
