Leadership

Will McKintypresident

After graduation with a Bachelor of Engineering Science (Mechanical), from the University of Western Ontario, Will started a career in operations management with Procter and Gamble. Over the next 27 years, Will worked in a broad range of leadership roles in the areas of Logistics, Quality, Engineering, Maintenance and Production. During this time Will worked for three different companies in positions ranging from Line-Manager to Manufacturing Director. In 2006 Will started up Wylie Systems, with the intention of creating information systems for the manufacturing sector. However, Will’s contacts in the retail sector ‘came calling’ with an immediate need for help with respect to inventory control and online ordering. This led to Wylie’s current diverse offerings centered on Point of Sale.
