Brian has had a long and successful career in the Canadian high-technology industry, dating back to 1975 when he joined ACA as a sales engineer, after a brief tenure as a development engineer with Urban Transport Development Corporation. After a four-year stint with Webster Instrument—during which time he was instrumental in increasing sales five-fold and became sales manager—he rejoined ACA as sales manager of the Fluke Division before assuming responsibility for the Scientific Division. As an owner and director of ACA since 1985, he has successfully grown ACA TMetrix Inc. into a leading supplier of system-level products and has developed an engineering team that has allowed ACA TMetrix Inc. to provide outsourcing services to its customers. He became CEO and president of ACA in 2005 and a major shareholder in 2014.
