Keith McIntosh – University of Richmond

Est. reading time: 5 mins

Within weeks of arriving at the University of Richmond (UR) in August 2016, when the verdant beauty of the campus still felt new and slightly surreal, a barely unpacked Keith McIntosh faced his first major test: what to do with the school’s aging enterprise resource planning platform (ERP). Some faculty, staff and administrators wanted to […]

Jeff Smedley – J&J Worldwide Services

Est. reading time: 5 mins

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 […]

Est. reading time: 5 mins

In 2006, three years into his role as warehouse logistics manager for Frialsa, a Mexican-based refrigerated storage and distribution provider, Gustavo Equihua began paying close attention to the company’s warehouse management system (WMS). Back then, all inventory was recorded and tracked on paper. Accounting errors were commonplace, and enterprise resource planning platforms (ERPs) belonging to […]

After nine hours of bathroom breaks and arguments over which kid gets to use the iPad, you’re finally here: a beautiful beachfront rental house on Florida’s St. George Island. A four-digit key code quickly gets you in the door, where you’re instantly greeted by automated lighting. Too drained to figure out the sleeping arrangement, you […]

Eric Frisch – Corsa Coal Corporation

Est. reading time: 5 mins

How refreshing, Eric Frisch thought upon moving into his new position as director of IT at Corsa Coal Corp. last March. A chance to revisit some hard info-tech skills he had honed while working as a director for his previous employer of five years, Rice Energy Inc., just across town in Canonsburg, Pennsylvania. In due […]

It’s where the next version of the Oracle Database will be developed, and a popular destination Jalisco, Mexico, has proven to be for a workforce that’s ballooned from five in 2012 to around 1,000.

Roger Brunelle – Naperville Community Unit School District 203

Est. reading time: 4 mins

When Roger Brunelle arrived at Naperville Community Unit School District 203 (NCUSD) in 2010, after a successful run in the private sector, many in the district weren’t sure what to expect. For some, the assumption was that the new CIO would test the waters of change cautiously, one toe at a time. Instead, Brunelle went […]

Sergey Slitinskiy – MedReview

Est. reading time: 4 mins

For Sergey Slitinskiy, running IT for a health care nonprofit often feels like an altogether different world from the improvisational soundscapes of one of the native Ukrainian’s lifelong passions—jazz saxophone. With one very notable exception: When all of the disparate parts that make up an IT department are arranged and working in concert, great things—life-changing […]

Jim Pavia – Kuehne + Nagel

Est. reading time: 4 mins

It took less than 10 seconds for Jim Pavia to stop the interview. “I’m sorry to have to do this,” he confided, a little exasperated. “But can I call you right back?” Five minutes later, the conversation was back on track, at which point Pavia offered his explanation for the holdup: Kuehne + Nagel’s European […]

Jeff Roberts – HFF

Est. reading time: 4 mins

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 […]

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.
