Meet the Executive Team
Chief Executive Officer (CEO)
Shawn brings strong leadership and ensures a customer service focus is present in all processes at PiiComm. Shawn knows how to deal with tough issues, with respect and integrity, both inside and outside of PiiComm. With Shawn’s guidance, PiiComm has grown very successfully in a short period of time. Shawn spent several years working for Bell Canada. During this time, he was a key player involved in countless mobile solutions in numerous different verticals.
What else can Shawn do? Well, he is also a mobile solution aficionado. Shawn knows how to build and implement unique wireless solutions to fit his customers’ needs. He has very successfully transferred that knowledge and skill to the team at PiiComm. Shawn built PiiComm because he knew his company would provide COMPLETE solutions to customers that currently weren’t receiving the type of care and attention required.
Shawn has recruited highly talented individuals to ensure PiiComm’s customers receive the best service and attention to detail. A critical part of PiiComm’s success is honesty and integrity. If you have a commitment with Shawn or any other employee at PiiComm – you are in excellent hands. Having been around technology a very long time, Shawn knows that technology is not always easy, especially when solutions are first deployed. He makes sure that you are confident and more than satisfied with your solution. He has built PiiComm to deliver solutions quickly, easily and afford-ably. Simply put, Shawn is happy as long as you are happy.
Shawn is married with 2 teenage children. He loves spending time with his family, at the hockey rink and playing anything that has a tune to it – especially his guitar. Video – executive biography (1:23 mins).
Chief Operating Officer (COO)
After about 5 minutes of meeting Dean, you just know that the solution you are about to purchase or just purchased is going to get done, not only in a timely manner but with superior customer service.
Dean means business and that’s GREAT for your company. Dean spent many years managing the financial system for Gowling Lafleur Henderson LLP. It is there, that he honed his innate ability for managing the critical detail involved in IT. He is very analytical – you require results fast, Dean makes sure you get them. Deans mantra is ‘System Integration’. Seriously, it is. Dean is the key holder to all things logistic at PiiComm. He is very passionate about his work. It’s that productive blend of concerted energy, intelligence and analytical thinking that you want working for you. He spots the holes before you do and gets them fixed, fast.
Dean has been with PiiComm since 2007. He has a wife and three young boys, so yes, that means a lot of time spent at the hockey rink. When Dean isn’t at the PiiComm offices or the hockey rink, he enjoys activities relating to cars, engines and things that go tick – including building and racing drag cars.

Vice President, Sales
Rick is one of a kind. Rick knows his way around high level strategy right down to the details of execution. On any given day, if you ask him what Part #WK32584 is, Rick will not only tell you exactly what it is but also, how it can improve your business. He’s PiiComm’s version of Cliff Clavin, only he tells you details you need to know or ask of him. And, some say he’s better looking.
Rick leads our Sales organization Nationally and joined PiiComm in 2007. Since that time he has earned a reputation from our customers as someone who solves problems fast, pays attention to the small detail because he knows a lot of the time, small detail means big impact. Rick provides excellent strategic and operational guidance to clients who are about to embark on enterprise mobility solutions. To be truthful, our customers love Rick. He’s passionate about wireless technology and loves it when he hears from his customers post-implementation, especially when they are telling him about their cost-savings and operational efficiencies achieved by going wireless.
When Rick isn’t spending time with customers or the PiiComm sales team, he is at home with his wife and two daughters. And if you can’t find him at home, you will find him outside on either a motorcycle or snowmobile. Video – executive biography (1:08 mins).
Vice President, Business Development
Terry is our resident life enthusiast. Terry’s energy will set the pace for your enterprise mobile solution. He is a huge advocate of customer service and ensures that all of his customers are more than satisfied with their solutions.
Terry spent 28 years at Bell Canada, starting off as a linesman but his personality paved his way into Sales. The latter part of his career at Bell was spent helping customers move away from paper-based systems into wireless solutions. He’s the type of person you want on your extended team. Terry and his team work hard to understand client needs and turn them into a reality. Most of all, Terry is very approachable and genuinely cares about moving his client’s businesses forward.
When he’s not helping our customers with their mobile solutions, you can probably find Terry entertaining (he’s an excellent host), tending to the BBQ, on his SeaDoo or lending his entrepreneurial spirit to his wife’s limousine company.
