Est. reading time: 4 mins

As Tropical Cheese Industries Inc. approaches its 40th anniversary, it can be celebrated as a quintessential American success story though it makes cheeses more typically found throughout Latin and South America. It was founded in 1983 by Rafael Mendez, who’d arrived in the U.S. from Cuba at age 17 with $50. He settled in Perth […]

Elizabeth Rich – OmniMax International

Est. reading time: 4 mins

Up until last year, plant workers at OmniMax International manually typed in data from customer orders, which sometimes led to mistakes. As demand grew, the company’s new owners decided the process needed to be automated. “The new leadership team is big into data,” says Elizabeth Rich, the director of IT for the Georgia-based manufacturer of […]

Geneviève Bertrand – Kruger Inc.

Est. reading time: 5 mins

Don’t only talk infotech with Geneviève Bertrand. She’ll be the first to acknowledge the people she oversees are better versed in its nuts and bolts, but that’s only half the business. Just as important is recognizing where IT is needed and applying it to enhance operations. That’s what she does as senior vice president of […]

Edgard Jaramillo – Microlink

Est. reading time: 4 mins

While agriculture is one of the biggest industries in Latin America, Edgard Jaramillo doesn’t think there’s been enough investment in digital infrastructure for it. “We see that as a huge opportunity,” the general manager of Microlink says. “And it’s not just about financial gain. It’s about the ability to have greater social impact.” Microlink, based […]

Christine Vanderpool – Florida Crystals

Est. reading time: 4 mins

Prior to taking over strategy and architecture within IT, Christine Vanderpool would receive requests for similar programs or systems from multiple departments. For example, some of Florida Crystals’s workforce wasn’t part of the company email system and often was left out of important communications. Around the same time Vanderpool began setting up their email accounts, […]

Most of us buy staples like bread and milk from supermarkets and groceries, but these stores need to purchase their goods from somewhere, too. Often enough, Weston Foods provides baked goods, from cakes and scones to loaves of bread, and Joe Abidaoud’s team puts the technology in place to make ordering easy. Since joining Weston […]

Robert Schulz – Interfor

Est. reading time: 4 mins

Rob Schulz has always been one to see the forest for the trees— literally. After graduating from the University of Victoria with his Bachelor of Science in Geography in 1992, he joined Coast Forest Management Consultants. There, he designed roads and bridges to be used for logging, and he measured how much usable timber a […]

Baldomero Gutierrez – Fresnillo PLC

Est. reading time: 4 mins

He’s in the homestretch of a lengthy infotech career, though Baldomero Gutierrez probably never will be one for the rocking chair. He’s too active. Plus, he’s now finding his working life at its most fulfilling, so retirement can wait another three or four years. In 2008, he was promoted to chief technology officer for Mexican […]

Scott Cole – Quail Tools

Est. reading time: 4 mins

For more than 40 years, energy companies, including Halliburton, ExxonMobil and Baker Hughes, have turned to Quail Tools for the pipes, tools and other equipment needed to extract valuable energy resources—including those buried 5,000 feet beneath the earth’s surface. But while Quail’s wares have long been considered some of the best in the industry, by […]

Kenny Mullican – Paragon Films

Est. reading time: 4 mins

That’s a wrap. Actually, at Paragon Films, it’s more than one wrap, because the company manufactures rolls of films and stretch wraps used to contain and protect pallets of goods during shipping and storage. As Kenny Mullican learned when he became CIO at Paragon Films in 2013, those wraps can be made to protect against […]

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.
