Jeff Scheetz – City of Avondale, Arizona

Est. reading time: 4 mins

Jeff Scheetz likes to joke that he moved from his native Colorado to Avondale, Arizona, to escape the snow. He’s done that, although it also means he left some of his favorite fishing streams behind when he became chief information officer for the city of 89,334 that’s on the western boundary of Phoenix. However, Scheetz […]

Est. reading time: 5 mins

Craig McBeath earned a promotion to director of information technology for the City of Bloomington, Illinois, just as the COVID-19 pandemic hit. And his first task was keeping the city’s services up and running as the whole country was shutting down. Located in central Illinois, roughly two hours southwest of Chicago, Bloomington is home to […]

Jako van Blerk – Macomb County

Est. reading time: 5 mins

Onward it goes, the migration of on-premise case management systems to the more secure yet still accessible cloud. Time was when it might have been met with dissent by the people who administer Michigan’s Macomb County, but as Chief Information Officer Jako van Blerk assures, the process proceeds according to plan and with the support […]

Rockford Benson – Ashtabula County

Est. reading time: 5 mins

Ashtabula County, Ohio, sits on the shores of Lake Erie, all 720 square miles of it dotted with quaint towns and picturesque greenery. It’s known for its wine country, covered bridges and—if you ask Rockford Benson—the down-to-earth friendliness of its 97,000 people. Benson is a native son who came home to serve his neighbors. He’s […]

Aldona K. Valicenti – Lexington-Fayette Urban County Government

Est. reading time: 5 mins

Rome wasn’t built in a day, and neither is a gigabit city. Lots of complexities must be satisfied when laying down a fiber-optic network with its nearly unlimited bandwidth and speed-of-light data transmission. All things considered, the four years-plus that it took to wire Lexington, Kentucky, went about as smoothly as could be expected, says […]

While Shane Simmons knew the demand for cybersecurity analysts  was high, he didn’t predict how many people would be interested in the career path. Earlier this year, 86 people applied for 10 spots in an internship program that he created with the South Carolina Department of Employment and Workforce.  Simmons, the organization’s chief information office […]

Feroz Merchhiya – City of Glendale, Arizona

Est. reading time: 5 mins

It’s safe to say very few tech leaders have worked in PR at a Pakistani hospital that treated victims of leprosy. But Feroz Merchhiya says it was an invaluable experience in his professional development—and a humbling one at that. “My journey is not a typical journey for someone who ended up in technology,” says Feroz […]

Pete Mauro – DTCUBED

Est. reading time: 5 mins

He’s in an advantageous position, albeit one where the rewards might be on hold for just a little while longer. In 2019 Pete Mauro sold his technology consultancy to private equity, which in turn sold last December to a public company. As part of the original deal, Mauro had a non-compete clause which ends in […]

Est. reading time: 4 mins

Within the broader scope of the country’s government operations, the Financial Transactions and Reports Analysis Centre of Canada, or FINTRAC, is a relatively small agency staffed by between 500 and 600 people.  Its mandate is much larger, however. According to Rachel Porteous, the Centre’s chief information officer, one of its most pressing responsibilities involves a […]

Rob Brown – U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services

Est. reading time: 4 mins

There’s a level of excitement and satisfaction to Rob Brown’s work with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services that other technology professionals may rarely enjoy. “We’re helping people achieve the American dream,” he says. “We’re helping refugees and asylees looking to start their new life in the United States.” And there are many desperate and deserving […]

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.
