Like any IT professional, George has to be 100 places all at once, putting out fires and keeping “everything IT” running without a hitch. As a corporate IT, his role is varied, fast-paced, and demanding, yet he does it all with a calm and reassuring manner.
He oversees the planning, organizing and execution of all technology and technology-related functions in the corporate office and for all MDM holdings. This includes the management of projects to improve office and hotels efficiency, software upgrade evolutions, and new software rollouts, coordinating with various agencies, suppliers, and personnel.

On a Personal Note...
George cut his teeth on an “Intel 386 DX” Computer, and as he explored that 386 DX at the age of nine, he realized that technology was his calling. In fact, it’s a calling that he’s been true to all these years. But there’s more to George than technology.
Did you know that our “guy in the hotseat” is from Nova Scotia? He says the lobster and salmon are the best in the world up there. He and his wife are planning a trip back home in the near future so he can show her “Canada’s Playground”!
At heart, he’s a family man and with his beautiful wife Zena, they hope to bring their first child into the world in the next year.
