Stephen Hunt – Queen’s University

Est. reading time: 4 mins

Several years ago, Stephen Hunt fielded a complaint from someone who needed to access a building with some engineering labs at Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario. He told them to call someone on his IT staff. That’s because getting such passcodes is part of the services Hunt and his team provide as he leads IT […]

Bo Wandschneider – University of Toronto

Est. reading time: 5 mins

Not too many years ago, it might have sounded like hyperbole for Bo Wandschneider to call cybersecurity the fourth line of defense, along with air, land and sea. Now, the warning seems spot-on with organized crime and nation-states having intensified cyberattacks since remote and hybrid work became business as usual due to COVID-19’s onset over […]

Scott Morrow – York Catholic District School Board

Est. reading time: 5 mins

Talk to straight A students and they’ll tell you that acing last semester’s report card won’t mean much if their next is marked with C’s.  The same principle applies with Scott Morrow’s new oversight of the infotech infrastructure at the York Catholic District School Board in central Ontario. Morrow having sustained some of his predecessor’s […]

Richard Ly – Plus Company

Est. reading time: 4 mins

In March 2020, companies across the globe were racing to adapt to COVID-19’s rapid spread: shuttering offices, setting up first-time Zoom meetings and struggling to move operations to the cloud. At Toronto-based Vision7 International—which was renamed Plus Company in 2021—they did nothing. In the years prior to the pandemic, the IT department at Vision7 had […]

Rachel Porteous – Financial Transactions and Reports Analysis Centre of Canada

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 Hewitt – SinglePoint Group International Inc.

Est. reading time: 4 mins

Whatever the business, you can’t put clients on hold. Especially when your business is about communications. Rob Hewitt nurtured that mindset with Rogers Communications and now applies it at another Canadian company that provides specialized call center services to companies on both sides of the border. But upon arriving at SinglePoint Group International Inc. in […]

Akshay Bissoon – Lussier

Est. reading time: 4 mins

When insuring a new car, just-purchased home or even a business, the preferred choice may be to put one’s trust in a company that’s been around for over a century—not one that started up a few days ago. Yet, that trust can be just as quickly lost if that same company has an outdated website […]

Kevin Jessiman – Price Industries Ltd.

Est. reading time: 4 mins

Except for the grilles on HVAC system vents, the parts and components made by Price Industries Ltd. are usually concealed from view. But whether in sophisticated labs, operating rooms or offices, the diffusers, fan and blower coils, and power and control modules made by Price are crucial for controlling temperatures and air quality in workplaces. […]

Maunang Mehta – Thomson Reuters

Est. reading time: 4 mins

When a client in the cryptocurrency market using a Thomson Reuters platform asked for more advanced technology, Maunang Mehta made it happen. The cryptocurrency company wanted a “data ingestion and IRS filing process” that could keep up with its growth. Along with his team, Mehta, the head of technology, trust tax and information reporting, started […]

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 […]

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.
