Paul Stewart - Chief Executive Officer (1994)

“When a client presents a problem that looks too tough to solve, I love to come up with an elegant solution that no one had thought of yet.” With a BSc Earth Sciences, from the University of Waterloo and Novell CNE training, Cisco IP router training, management training, and lots of practice, Paul is the go-to guy for networking services.

Starting out as a geologist, he began supporting engineers and CAD/CAM, which led to computer networking (Novell was new then and Microsoft didn’t have a server product yet). Paul then launched Nautalex Business Services Inc. Later, internet support services and web development demands led to the creation of Nautalex Software Services with Jarret Austin which has blossomed into its own specialized web marketing company. A humanitarian at heart, Paul has been a Rotarian for over 10 years, helping raise money for the underprivileged and travelling to different countries where he’s experienced remarkably different cultures. At home, Paul keeps a sharp eye on the Nautalex business and keeps it moving in the right direction. He never knows what new challenge will be waiting for him to solve from one week to the next but when trouble starts, and people begin to panic, that’s when the job (and often the fun) begins. Paul really enjoys those times then again he also loves skiing black diamond runs in fresh powder at Vail!  

MARTY DUPRE - SYSTEMS SUPPORT (2000)

As a self professed, over-educated computer whiz (UW Computer Science and Conestoga College Electrical Engineering Technician), Marty started out in construction. Well, the IT department of a construction company to be exact; testing, repairing and calibrating furnace remote controls. From there he moved on to bigger and better things at Nautalex providing exceptional IT Systems Support to clients.

Marty's favorite and least favorite thing about his job are the same: there are always different issues to deal with and there are Always different issues to deal with!

When he's not dealing with those issues, you can find Marty on the ski hills, the volleyball court or pondering the big questions in life - "My parking spot is 42... and THE answer is 42... coincidence?" If you have the answer, feel free to give Marty a call.

  BILL STIFF - SYSTEMS SUPPORT (2011) “Google is my friend!” After what seemed like a lifetime of manufacturing work, Bill was gifted with the opportunity to get an education in a field he is actually passionate about- computers. With an inspiring philosophy that there’s always something new to learn, Bill graduated college at the age of 37 and is highly qualified to take care of all your server needs with a Network Administration Engineering and Design degree from Conestoga. One of Bill’s favourite things is coming across situations that embody his key value – hard work. When Bill says, “I’ve never seen that happen before,” you know he won’t be stumped for long. On the flip side, Bill is still searching for something about his profession that he doesn’t like. With a great wife and kids, Bill centers his downtime around his family.
