Maria Sanchez – State of New Mexico

She figured to be in career-changing mode sooner rather than later. Not out of desperation, though. Maria Sanchez was holding down two high-profile positions—general counsel for the New Mexico Department of Information Technology and state CIO. Quite a two-fer for a 31-year-old. Or for anyone. Lest one find that resume too impressive, Sanchez will remind […]

Kip Wright – Genuent

It is an intensive three months. From day one, participants dive deeply into specific technologies, IT systems and platforms. Beyond getting into the specs, they perform case studies, analyze real-world data, practice best and worst-case scenarios—all while honing their presentation, negotiation, business and personal skills. And after 12 weeks? “They are promoted to a full […]

Jeff Smedley – J&J Worldwide Services

A military hospital’s primary mission being the treatment of soldiers and veterans, it must stretch every dollar and can’t afford inefficiencies. Certainly not in the operation of physical facilities. So reminds Jeff Smedley, the CIO and vice president of J&J Worldwide Services, the Austin, Texas-based company that’s the largest privately held operations and maintenance contractor […]

Jeff Roberts – HFF

You’ve probably heard the story: A seasoned CIO eager for the next great challenge joins a new company to find IT infrastructure that’s old, slow and woefully unreliable—in other words, a rescue mission. After more than 25 years in the fin-tech fray (industry jargon for financial tech), Jeff Roberts could’ve played the hero’s role just […]

Dennis Haynie – Andrews Independent School District

Imagine you’re an archaeologist extracting an artifact that’s been hidden in dirt for millennia. Gently, you brush away the dust. Laboriously, you use precision tools to pry it free, bit by bit. Tenderly you lift it, inspecting it from all angles. But you’re not in the sweltering, dust-choked standard of an archaeological dig site—you’re in […]

Trey Smith—MIC Global Services

One company supplies jet fuel to 70 bases and terminals throughout the United States. Another is responsible for warehousing industrial fluid in million-gallon tanks for dozens of seaside facilities. There’s a Hawaiian natural gas company and a cutting-edge wind and solar energy company. Together, these businesses are serviced by one company: MIC Global Services. All […]

Darrell Cheney – Channelview Independent School District

As a kitchen designer, he taught himself to conceptualize spaces based on how the materials would be installed. As a restaurant manager, how to multitask and prioritize. From being a bowling instructor, he learned the importance of communication. So whenever Darrell Cheney finds himself talking to students at Channelview Independent School District’s (CISD) annual Career […]

David Calabrese – Canadian Independent School District

One hundred miles northeast of Amarillo, surrounded by the stark and limitless landscape of the Panhandle, sits the hamlet of Canadian, Texas. With a population shy of 3,000 and a downtown covering four square blocks, you can’t get much further from the big-city bustle of Dallas and Houston (or the big-city tax base). All of […]

Kristen Davis – Barbers Hill Independent School District

Turns out the superintendent knew best back in 2015. For the Barbers Hill Independent School District, about 30 miles east of Houston, needed a new director of technology, and Dr. Greg Poole liked what he saw in Kristen Davis. Not that Davis was in a technological position per se. The former elementary teacher and assistant […]

Brandon Prince – Atlanta Independent School District

On a given afternoon, Brandon Prince and his staff might be out on an athletic field in muddy sneakers setting up a digital tracking system for a track and field meet. On another, you might find them up on ladders installing security cameras or testing electronic door locks. This is in addition to tending to […]

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.
