The seventh largest solution provider on CDN’s Top 100 Solution Provider list named a new leader.

Gord Mawhinney was promoted to CEO of Calgary-based Longview, succeeding the iconic Don Bialik in the role.

Mawhinney joined Long View in 2009 and was president of North American operations.

One of Bialek’s many great traits was that he cared for his community. In Mawhinney, Longview did not skip a beat in that regard as the company helped all of its customer and government maintain operations during the great Calgary flood.

In 2013, Longview grew its Toronto office from zero to 25 people including former HP Canada channel chief Dave Frederickson.

Longview also took home the coveted prize from Cisco Systems  as it was named Professional Services Partner of the Year at Cisco Partner Summit 2013.

Along with the Cisco award, Longview was recognized for its expertise in delivering cloud computing solutions by winning the Asigra’s “Rookie of the Year” award.
