On March 13, 2018, ventureLAB hosted Anthony Gallo, Vice President of Digital Technology & Big Data at Canadian Tire Corporation, and ventureLAB Board Member for our monthly Capital | Talent | Tech event!

This month’s event focused on tech. Capital | Talent | Tech is our fireside chat series where we invite industry leaders to join us for an engaging conversation each month, focused on one of these three topics on a rotating basis.

Anthony Gallo is the Vice President of Digital Technology & Big Data at Canadian Tire Corporation, and a ventureLAB Board Member since 2015. Anthony is a seasoned executive in the Canadian tech scene – before joining Canadian Tire, he led digital strategy at OpenText and ran R&D for the customer experience management product unit of OpenText Corporation that includes web experience management, media management, and social enterprise technologies.

He has also served in a few other VP roles with the same company, which is recognized as Canada’s largest software company as of 2014, and is a global leader in Enterprise Information Management software. Prior to joining the big corporations, Anthony founded one of the fastest growing web experience platform companies, Vizible Corporation, which was acquired by OpenText in 2009.

Anthony took the time to answer a number of questions about how to break into larger organizations, what companies like Canadian Tire are doing to expand their innovation portfolios and how technology has informed his career in this conversation focused on Tech led by Jeremy Laurin.
