Below is an excerpt of the full article.
Founded by the Krywulak brothers (Chris and Greg) and Kelly Kazakoff in Regina in 1999, iQmetrix has grown to 170 employees and twelve years later calls Vancouver home.
Two years ago iQmetrix management realized that the top talent in Regina already worked for their company and that in order to take their business to the next level they would need to relocate their headquarters. While iQmetrix could have easily landed in Silicon Valley, they saw an opportunity in Vancouver to hand-pick veteran talent for their senior leadership team while remaining in Canada.
Kerem Karatal (co-founder of NCompass Labs that was acquired by Microsoft) became CTO, Rob Tweddle (ex-CFO at Blast Radius) is now iQmetrix’s CFO, and Boris Mann (Vancouver tech evangelist and co-founder of Bryght and Bootup Labs) is Senior Platform Analyst.
