Featured InducteeINDUCTED 2018 - KEITH WORTHINGTON, LINEMASTER
Keith is very active on Linkedin. If a question is posted, there is a very high chance that he has commented on the post. He has been attending Syteline Conferences since 2012 and has also helped organize and hold a local user group meetings
“He is laser focused on how Syteline can help impact our business in a positive way. He tries to have us step back from our legacy processes and ‘old ways' of doing things and constantly challenges, ‘Can Syteline help us do things more efficiently and make us more profitable?’ He believes if we are more profitable we will invest more in technology, and he is right! Very deserving honor.”

Deb Mattson is the Director of IT at Brewer Company where she has worked since 2001.

Under her leadership Brewer Company took on the loft challenge to upgrade from SL 6 to SL 8 in just 5 months. They have since upgraded to SL 9 and continue to be on the leading edge of the new modules thanks to her knowledge and leadership. Deb has used much of what she has learned to present at local SL user group meetings.
