ITAC names new president

The Information Technology Association of Canada (ITAC) introduced its new president and CEO – Bill Bergen – during a recent event in Toronto.

Bergen – a former president of Oracle Corp. Canada Inc. – will take over responsibilities from acting ITAC President Adam Chowaniec, chairperson of Tundra Semiconductor Corp.

Bergen said he isn’t an “association kind of guy” but wanted to do something with Canadian importance.

“I wanted to get up in the morning and be excited about doing something for the Canadian IT sector,” Bergen said.

He added that he was excited about the changes that ITAC has been going through in the last couple of years with a stronger emphasis on “made in Canada.” He added that with this country’s size and “swiftness of foot,” Canada should be able to move past anything the U.S. IT industry can do in both the public and private sectors.

He said the goal of ITAC is to expand and develop the IT marketplace and improve productivity in Canada and to “put Canada on the road map as a role model to the rest of the world, particularly the G-8.” ITAC can be found online at
