Randy Muyargas – Cordoba Corp.

He knows of client companies whose data has been breached, rendering them liable for delays, damages and fines that add up to billions of dollars. There’s a common denominator in construction industry hackings, explains Randy Muyargas. Too often, he tells Toggle this past December, the industry has been behind the infotech times, relying on outdated […]

Steve Carlson – Buddies Brand

Weed. It’s complicated. The patchwork nature of the surging cannabis industry has created challenges for even the most successful businesses due to shifting regulations and a lack of access to banking and insurance services. However, some cannabis companies like wholesaler Buddies Brand are lending order to the chaos by using big business techniques, including a […]

Tom Benton – Sierra College

Throughout his career in IT and education, Tom Benton has connected students to information, but never was the delivery of education tested as much as during the COVID-19 crisis. When Sierra College in Rocklin, California, closed its campuses during the pandemic, Benton—the school’s chief technology officer—credits three initiatives for saving the day. Microsoft Teams + […]

Brook Conner – Hawaii State Department of Education

In 2017, when Brook Conner came to work at the Hawaii State Department of Education, he knew his work was cut out for him. A major tipoff was that the department was using antiquated Lotus Notes, in some cases on SunOS—an operating system replaced in the ‘90s. Soon, he had filled a white board with […]

Tom Yeatts – ServiceNow

Having plied his technology skills in both the private and public sectors, Tom Yeatts now finds himself in something of a hybrid role—employed by the former but serving the latter. To say he understands the differences between the two would be an understatement. “I used to be in government and there’s a reason why it’s […]

Martin Marino – Goodfellow Bros.

To the average person, the task entrusted to Goodfellow Bros., may seem quite basic. It’s about moving dirt, and volumes of it in order to enable large-scale construction projects in Hawaii and up and down the West Coast. But the heavy civil construction industry is far more complex than one may think. For starters, there […]

Don Wolff – Portland Public Schools

It’s been a long time coming, but students in Oregon’s Portland Public Schools—particularly those in the Northeast Albina District—will finally get the technology they deserve, thanks to the passage of the largest capital bond in the state’s history last November. During the past century, the city endured its fair share of racial strife, and Portland […]

Sree Sreedhararaj – Sephora

Though Sree Sreedhararaj has spent his career bettering retail with technology, he was still caught by surprise with events in 2020. The COVID-19 pandemic was a retail game changer, even during the holiday shopping season that was starting as Sreedhararaj chatted with Toggle in November. Though he’d anticipated the need for a stronger virtual presence […]

Dr. Adrian M. Mayers – Premera Blue Cross

Every company in the U.S. that holds large amounts of sensitive data should not only ensure that their security programs are as robust as possible—they have a primary duty to do so. This, says Dr. Adrian M. Mayers, is not only to protect clients, partners and internal users, but to contribute to national security. As […]

David Heineck – La Salle Catholic College Preparatory

Enter to learn, leave to serve. So the students are taught at La Salle Catholic College Preparatory in Milwaukie, Oregon. A private co-ed high school under the auspices of the Archbishop of Portland, its curriculum is demanding for students drawn from nearly 100 grammar and junior high schools throughout the Portland, Oregon, metro area. La […]

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
