Karna Gupta discusses Information Technology in Canada: REPLAY

Karna Gupta, president and CEO of the Information Technology Association of Canada will be in conversation with Free Press business writer Martin Cash at the News Café, Wednesday at 12:30.

Before taking the helm at ITAC a couple of years ago Gupta was the CEO of Certicom Corporation, a Mississauga-based encryption technology company. He led that company through a turnaround, defended it against a hostile takeover bid and ultimately led it through a successful transaction which resulted in a friendly acquisition of the company by RIM.

With plenty of growth opportunities in the sector, Gupta is responsible for helping Canadian companies take advantage of opportunities like research tax credits and accessing talent from around the world.

"The future of our industry in Canada lies with the business leaders who, in spite of a global recession, fierce competition and constantly changing technology, are working hard to build the next great global hi-tech companies," Gupta said.
