20 Jun 2013 1:00 PM | Pat Shaw (Administrator)

The YTA today announced a slate of Directors to further expand its diversity and representation within the ecosystem, broadening depth and reach within the Tech community of the GTA.

Joining the board of directors are business leaders Camille Peters (Mobile Computing Group), Heather Fedash (IBM Canada), Michael O’Neil (Insight as a Service) and Robert Lane (Robert Lane Consulting), adding insight that will assist the YTA in delivering member services through its unique Peer2Peer Series and the expansion of alliance-building relationships amongst organizations supporting the growth of small and mid-size tech businesses throughout the GTA.

"The YTA Board of Directors is representative of growth-focussed leaders in the technology membership," said Pat Shaw, YTA Executive Director.  "We are especially fortunate to have Tracey Whitehouse elected as Chair of the Board to further advance our presence in the GTA as a business growth hub."  Ms Whitehouse is an industry champion and COO of TGO Consulting, the tech services firm she cofounded25 years ago. http://www.tgo.ca/

"As a corporate membership organization, the YTA has built a significant reputation for connecting tech leaders to share insights, learn from each other, and grow their businesses.  We have a community with members representing all aspects of the tech sector within the GTA," said Tracey Whitehouse, "and now is the right time to embrace a new brand that conveys our commitment to connecting business leaders in our role as a hub for knowledge mobilization: to share, learn and grow." 

TechConnex will now be the “face” of the organization. Changing the brand from YTA to TechConnex will better convey the Mission of the tech hub and support the growth mandate throughout the GTA.
