As part of the Deloitte Technology Fast 50 program, the Companies-to-Watch award honours early-stage Canadian technology companies that demonstrate promising growth potential to be a future Technology Fast 50 candidate.

“Companies-to-Watch winners deserve recognition for their early achievements and future potential,” said Erica Pretorious, partner and national leader for the Technology Fast 50 program at Deloitte Canada. “They demonstrate courage to take calculated risks. These outstanding companies are key to the future success of the technology sector.”

Companies-to-Watch winners are a class of companies that possess “effective management experience and superior technology.” They must also be headquartered in Canada and devote a significant portion of their operating revenues to creating proprietary technology or intellectual property.

Following 826 per cent revenue growth in the last two years, TrackTik received $7 million in financing from Caisse de dépôt et de placement du Québec (la Caisse) and iNovia Capital last month, and recently announced global expansion and product development plans, as well as a plan to hire up to 70 employees.

To support TrackTik’s expansion and growth, the company says, Gian Carlo Di Tommaso has been appointed to the newly created position of COO.

In his new position, Di Tommaso — who has been a member of the TrackTik Board of Directors since May — will be responsible for leading and expanding the team on an international level.

“Gian Carlo has been providing valuable input as a TrackTik board member for the last few months, and we are thrilled to welcome him to the TrackTik team as our new COO,” said TrackTik founder and CEO Simon Ferragne.

Di Tommaso previously served as CFO and vice president, finance at La Presse. Prior to that, he served as vice president of finance and operations at Luxury Retreats.

Additionally, he is a mentor with Founder Institute and Limited Partner of iNovia Capital.
