Our CEO Geoff Irvine has always been a vocal advocate for the sustainable use of technology in education. Prior to founding Chalk & Wire, Geoff spent 22 years as an educator and researcher in both secondary and higher education. For his early work he has been awarded the Governor General of Canada’s Award for Excellence in Teaching (CNHS) and was made a Nortel Associate for Excellence in Innovation and Education.

Over the years Geoff has brought together a strong and talented team of educators, with proficiency in everything from curriculum design and assessment practice to change management and deployment strategies. Complementing this core team is a group of technology professionals: experts in fields such as user experience, network topography and system administration, as well as two full teams of highly experienced programmers.
