Get to know the Kelowna Chamber's Board of Directors and Ambassadors in our new segment. This new bi-weekly update will introduce you to the people behind-the-scenes at the Chamber, and get to know more about them, why they got involved with the Chamber, and what they love about serving our business community.
This week we want to introduce you to Todd Chapman, our wonderful Ambassador, and man behind CMIT Solutions here in Kelowna!
What is your position / title and company, and what do you do there?
I am the Owner and CEO Of CMIT Solutions Kelowna – Okanagan. I started this company last year after seeing a gap in the quality and affordability of I.T. services for small to medium-sized businesses in the Okanagan Valley.
How long have you been in the Okanagan? If you aren’t originally from the valley, what led you to call the Okanagan ‘home’?
I have been living and working here for the past 6 years. My wife and I fell in love with the Okanagan on our first trip in 2000 while visiting family, we both said we would live here one day.
What do you enjoy most about your role with the Kelowna Chamber?
I really enjoy meeting new people, new business owners and supporting the business community. I am in awe of the entrepreneurs in this region, how innovative and interesting their business ideas are, as well as, their drive to be successful.
What are you looking forward to / planning for the future?
I am passionate about how we can use technology to elevate businesses by streamlining process and providing a better overall experience to the customer. One thing that the pandemic has made clear, is that we do not have to be confined to a physical office space to be productive. I foresee in the near future a hybrid workforce, creating a work-life balance between home and office. This can be achieved securely and seamlessly with the right IT partner.
