Welcome to the CEO EDGE Podcast! In this episode, we talk with Don Bialik, Executive Chairman & CEO of Long View Systems, MacKay CEO Forums member and Innovator Partner.
Don was the original founder of Long View in 1998. As Executive Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Don’s current role involves providing strategic direction, and leadership to the executive teams with an eye towards ensuring sustainability and continued growth.
Interestingly enough, Long View is Don’s second success story in the entrepreneurship world. His first venture was an IT company called SysGold and under his leadership took only six short years to become the largest privately owned information technology solutions provider in Calgary. He sold SysGold, and shortly thereafter went on to found Long View. Prior to his IT leadership days, Don held management roles in a variety of sectors including, construction, government, and mining. Don has a degree in engineering as well as an MBA from the University of Calgary.
When he’s not busy at Long View, you can find Don practicing his three-pointer, biking, and spending time with his two daughters, and two granddaughters.
