Chatham, Ontario, September 18, 2019: Bill Johnson, Scribendi's Head of IT and Software Engineering, has secured an official position on WEtech Alliance's board of directors as its newest member. Bill's term formally began on September 17 after his official acceptance of the role.
"I'm excited about this new role. As a member of the local tech community, I understand the challenges associated with growing tech companies in our region. I look forward to working with my peers to help alleviate these challenges and develop a community that fosters innovation and attracts top tech talent," Bill says.
WEtech Alliance's mission is to help grow technology companies, at all stages of growth, that champion innovation in Windsor–Essex and Chatham–Kent. According to the WEtech Alliance website, "WEtech's vision is to build a regional technology community that fosters entrepreneurship, innovation, and collaboration that together create opportunity and prosperity."
This aim is tied with Scribendi's very closely. Scribendi embraces technology to ensure that its operations run smoothly, and its innovative technology allows the company to adapt quickly in an ever-changing industry. In addition, Scribendi's technologies help professional English editors unlock their full creative potential and enhance their productivity by handling repetitive tasks at maximum efficiency.
"We adopt the latest technologies and do a lot of cool things here at Scribendi. However, it can be difficult to attract top tech talent to our community. This is a challenge that both Scribendi and WEtech have been independently working on improving. By joining the board, I am hoping to tackle these issues more efficiently together, as a single cohesive unit," Bill says.
As Scribendi's IT Manager, Bill is the lead architect on all development projects, including new proprietary software, new web properties, and a custom customer relationship mangement system. He is dedicated to improving the company's technologies and keeping them running at full capacity.
"Being the Head of IT and Software Engineering at Scribendi is a demanding role. At the end of the day, I am only as good as my team. We have been fortunate enough to have built a small—but talented—IT team here at Scribendi. However, this took a lot of time and effort to achieve, and as we grow, so do these challenges. I am looking forward to helping solve these problems—not just for Scribendi, but for the entire tech community in Windsor–Essex and Chatham–Kent," Bill says.
