Pamela Banchy – Western Reserve Hospital

Est. reading time: 4 mins

Long before she worked in IT, Pamela Banchy was a nurse. She spent 14 years at the University Hospitals of Cleveland where her excellent communication skills helped her establish strong relationships with patients and physicians. That ability prompted Banchy’s supervisor to approach her with a bluntly worded job offer that ushered her into the tech […]

Daniel Morreale – Hunterdon HealthCare

Est. reading time: 5 mins

Daniel Morreale uses an apt metaphor to describe the task of implementing new technologies: It’s a little like building an ocean liner when it’s in the midst of crossing the ocean. The key is to make change while in motion, carefully, efficiently—and without sinking the ship. That’s true from both a technical standpoint and a […]

When he first met Shawn Carnahan and Steve Tilley at a preschool function 22 years ago, Dan Castles says he was just trying to shoot the breeze and keep his sanity around dozens of screaming children.

Ted Ross – City of Los Angeles

Est. reading time: 4 mins

Los Angeles has two sides: the one seen by outsiders, and the one seen by Angelenos, the people who live there. “When people think of Los Angeles, they think about Hollywood celebrities and great weather, but, as a government, we think about things like traffic,” says Ted Ross, CIO for the city of Los Angeles […]

Jeff Stovall – City of Charlotte, NC

When the police department for the City of Charlotte and Mecklenburg County, North Carolina, issued a citation to the regional IT department, it wasn’t ordering the techies to appear in court. In fact, it was giving the department recognition for a job well done through a special “unit citation” that’s issued only as an award, […]

Dan Coldiron – City of Fort Collins

Est. reading time: 5 mins

Dan Coldiron’s first job for the City of Fort Collins, Colorado, seems far away from the lead technology role he now occupies. “I was the guy that ran around and got parts for the mechanics when they were working on vehicles,” he says. Having just left Colorado State University in 1984, Coldiron worked as a […]

Jane Nickles – City of Greensboro, North Carolina

Est. reading time: 4 mins

Years ago, Jane Nickles was a dance major at the University of North Carolina, Greensboro, paying her way by working at a department store. She remembers the fateful day when a co-worker, bringing in a stack of classwork, introduced her to computer programming and inspired her to pursue it as a career. Now, 30 years […]

Phil Ventimiglia – Georgia State University

Est. reading time: 5 mins

College students today can meet someone at a party or a bar and, out of the thousands or even tens of thousands of young people in the area, find them the next day on Facebook or Twitter with a few swipes of the finger. Yet they often struggle to do digital academic research. Phil Ventimiglia, […]

Anthony Hambey – Birmingham-Southern College

Est. reading time: 5 mins

When you tell the faculty at your liberal arts college that you’re going to replace all of the computers in their offices, classrooms and technology labs, including computers that have years of data and research stored on them, there are basically two options. Be very, very specific, or brace for chaos. Anthony Hambey, vice president […]


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
