Laurie Paleczny, President
Laurie drives the overall strategic direction and operational results for Dash Digital Group, drawing on more than 25 years of experience developing and delivering business strategy, projects and technology solutions across multiple industries and companies of all sizes. Outside of work, Laurie plays guitar and saxophone and is addicted to running in order to offset her passion for baking (and eating) scrumptious desserts. She's also very bad at telling good jokes.
Tushar Singh, Chief Technology Officer
Tushar has over 15 years in the design and development of complex internet, mobile, gaming and operating systems, proving time and time again that he can provide clients with leading-edge solutions to solve their most complex challenges. Part of Tushar's success is in genuine interest in becoming an expert in what our clients do. World domination via ultimate frisbee is what drives Tushar to be the evil genius he is, day in and day out.
Jon Hines, Senior Developer
Jon is the lead developer at Dash and is responsible for systems development, data integration and systems operations. Jon has fifteen years experience in systems design and development. His passion for technology and problem solving started at six years old when he built his first computer application; undergraduate and graduate studies in mechanical engineering followed. Outside of solving complex problems, Jon can be found spending time with his family, playing and coaching ultimate frisbee, or pursuing his freelance photography hobby.
Allison Leonard, Content Strategist
Allison’s background in journalism and masters research in cultural analysis is the ethical backbone in all she approaches, and the seven cups of coffee she drinks daily is probably the cause for her sass. It’s a good thing though – that critical eye finds its way into her work, be it writing, data analysis or design. A storyteller at heart, Allison is skilled in creating a narrative no matter the medium. Ask her about the news, about Waterloo Region arts and culture, or about the weird art party she hosts.
Jordan Thompson, Developer
Jordan's background in software engineering technology and expertise in testing makes him a secret weapon in the Dash office. He's a stickler for detail and is a problem solver at his core; whether you give him a good old fashioned puzzle or a complex code issue, he'll be content all day. Jordan doesn't drop these habits when the work day ends. After 5 p.m. find him dabbling in game development, collecting comic books or watching every single College Humour video.
