NEWMARKET, ON – Erin was selected as one of the top four Canadian Women Leaders in the IT Channel, at a Recognition Luncheon held in August by Canadian Dealer News (CDN) in collaboration with Ingram Micro Canada, at the beautiful Graydon Hall Manor in Toronto.
More than 100 other influential women executives attended the Luncheon, where Erin was honoured as one of the select group of four.
Erin, a Business graduate of Ryerson Polytechnic Institute, launched her career in the Finance Department at IBM. In 1989 she was part of the team with her late husband Dave that launched the telecom startup Accord Communications, where Erin assumed the position of CFO. Accord experienced tremendous growth over the following decade with Erin as the key stakeholder, managing all financial aspects of this successful startup. As the business approached annual revenues of 30 million dollars, it was sold to Cygnal Technologies. While at Cygnal, Erin joined the management team responsible for the integration of multiple acquisitions. The key component of that integration was the deployment of an ERP system across all divisions of the corporation.
In 2005, Erin became part of a new venture X Unity TelecomX where she again assumed the role of CFO. Unity experienced explosive growth hitting the $25M mark in less than eight years. Last year, with the passing of her husband, Erin assumed the role as CEO, and has continued to work with the team to grow the business, and establish new solutions for various market segments.
