TelePhoto Technologies Inc.
June 1970 - August 2010
While providing leadership and expertise to the organization for over forty years, this small business of less than 250 employees became the premier provider of Video Race Patrol, Television Production and Photo Finish services to the Horse Racing industry across Canada. Having co-authored winning back to back successive Government RFP (request for proposals) bids to service horse racetracks across Canada our "fine tuned" tendered services proved to be a winning formula for success!
Promoted in 1998 to the office of President after proving skills and expertise that were extremely valuable to the success of the enterprise my work evolved from a business operations generalist into an enterprise RFP Specialist.
