SPOTLIGHT, WITH J.D. BOOTH

Sarnia’s IT manager sheds some light on what may be ahead for the City

Mark Dillon, a native of the area, began his career developing software for the utility industry

It’s been a little over a year since Mark Dillon joined the City of Sarnia as its corporate manager of IT, but he’s hardly a newcomer to the area.

He grew up in Corunna and graduated from what was then St. Christopher’s Catholic High School then enrolled in Lambton College’s computer programmer/analyst program, later transferring to Mohawk College, having accepted a paid co-op position in Hamilton.

Later Dillon worked in Stratford at a municipal-owned utility that was building out one of the first-in-the-country local Wi-Fi networks.

But his conversation with J.D. Booth of Lambton Shield was mostly about the kind of future Dillon sees for Sarnia, as it effectively “reboots” its IT infrastructure with a view to improving service for residents and business owners alike.

Anyone who is familiar with technology (and there are obviously quite a few of us out there) will find this conversation of particular interest, especially as we get a glimpse of what may be in store for a City poised for growth.

We hope you enjoy this episode of Spotlight and invite you to share with your networks.
