Randy developed his interest in computers while his dad completed a masters program at the U of C. There were numerous weekends where Randy enjoyed time in the university's computer lab. Years later, Randy had the opportunity to be the “go-to guy” for all computer issues many local businesses had. He went on to take an IT consultant role at Collins Barrow in Calgary, where he found that he enjoyed working on a number of their client’s computer systems and also learned much about the business considerations that one must have for each industry type. Randy left Collins Barrow after three years to pursue his entrepreneurial dream and applied his business and technology experience to manage a select group of clients. In 2005 Randy launched IronOak IT and managed to expand it by developing a team of techs that continued to serve a growing list of clients.
Bonnie left a social work background to raise two kids and be involved in their activities. Her part-time business involvement provided a taste of the entrepreneurial world and required her to develop great organizational skills that would prove useful in all of her areas of interest. As the President of the Stampede City Gymnastic Club, Bonnie learned to develop policies, procedures and systems that helped the club grow while support a vibrant competitive program.
Other examples of volunteer work that Bonnie has performed are: Team Manager for a trip to Germany and Volunteer Coordinator for the Western Canadian Gymnastic Championships. All this involvement helped Bonnie develop valuable skills in event planning that she continues to apply in the IT business to this day. Bonnie joined the IronOak team in 2007 and has been an important part of it ever since. Her experience with management systems is used to support non-profits as well as businesses since IronOak IT wants to be - “Your Partner in Productivity”.
Justin has been working on computers ever since he could walk. Starting out with Norton Commander at a young age and growing from there. Growing up in a small town meant that he had to be self-sufficient when it came to fixing computers as no tech support was available then. This, combined with his curiosity for how everything works lead him to computer programming and then to the Information Technology field. He has completed a computer systems course at S.A.I.T. and joined IronOak IT after graduation. He has been part of the team since 2010 and continues to do what he loves, which is solving problems.
Katia trained in secretarial/bookkeeping at a private school. Her first office job was as a bookkeeper in a cheese factory. Later Katia worked as a private secretary for a finance manager at a wholesale electrical company. She then took a break to raise and home school her two daughters for a few years.
When Katia moved to Calgary eight years ago, she upgraded her office skills at Mount Royal. On her last day in class, she took a job with the Canadian Cancer Society where she worked with the general public as well as internal staff and board members for a total of five years. As an avid people-watcher, her passion is to find ways to help others understand their value and fulfill their life purpose.
Katia now works as part of the Client Care team and thrives on helping others succeed. She refers to part of her job as being an air-traffic controller; except, in this case, it is techs on the fly.
