Victoria, BC – itgroove is pleased to announce that Alec McCauley has joined the itgroove team in the role of SharePoint Consultant. Alec brings a solid technical foundation, advanced knowledge of web development technologies and a strong ability to lead, work collaboratively and problem solve.
Born and raised in Calgary, Alec spent a large portion of his youth travelling the world – including Germany, Scotland, Holland and California. When not being homeschooled while living abroad, Alec went to a French language school and is still fluently bilingual. His interest in designing digital and print projects using the Adobe Master Collection began at a young age, and lead to numerous freelance projects in graphic design, web design and web development.
At the same time he pursued a career as a Stage Manager working in live performance theatre including four seasons at Calgary’s very popular Shakespeare in the Park. Four years and 25 productions later, he accepted a position as a Communications Technology Specialist at West Island College, an independent Junior and Senior High School (grades 7 – 12) in Calgary with 500 students and 100 staff. His strong management skills, extraordinary leadership ability, and aptitude to never lose sight of the details while keeping focused on the big picture lead to a promotion to CIO in August 2013.
During his time at WIC he used technology as a catalyst for organization change, developing many web-based tools and services for students, faculty and parents including several custom portals and a public facing website. These tools tackled business problems by enhancing communication, facilitating learning and improving productivity.
Some of the large scale projects he led included a complete network rebuild, a one-to-one iPad deployment, a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) implementation, and a large-scale migration from SharePoint 2010 and Exchange 2010 to Office 365.
Since joining itgroove, Alec’s focus has been on Custom Solution Development, Composites, Performance, and SharePoint Implementation. He has already worked with a number of clients and delivered several internal development projects – including a URL Link App and an Outlook to Yammer App. Alec spends his free time exploring his new community in Victoria, BC with his partner Christina and their dog Buster.
