The Spark:

Our Tech-Obsessed
Co-Founder

It all began with our co-founder, Toni Guimaraes, who was the original spark that ignited our IT division. Toni loved all things tech —gadgets, systems, and new technologies—and at first, was the only one dedicated to IT staffing.

As demand quickly grew, he and Kathryn Tremblay — his life partner and our CEO — saw an opportunity to create an entire IT division to support the ever evolving technology landscape.

Expanding
Nationwide

Since 1989, we’ve steadily expanded our IT division, role by role, province by province, keeping pace as new tech trends emerged, connecting talent with opportunity nationwide. 

And every step of the way, our focus has always been on the people we serve: clients and candidates.

Today, we place thousands of innovative IT candidates in top private and public sector roles across Canada every year. You could be next!
