Our Leadership

David Suydam, Architech CEO and Founder, Toronto custom software developer

David Suydam

CEO & Founder

With an exemplary reputation in his field, David's vast experience as a technology consultant and solution architect has spanned more than 15 years in some of the most complex business environments throughout Canada and around the world.

David's focus on creative solutions is based on a strong belief that traditional software development practices are flawed, and his team routinely demonstrates a better approach with open source, agile methods and cloud computing.

Prior to founding Architech, David provided consulting services to telecommunications and banking clients including Telus and RBC Royal Bank.

"I'm constantly amazed at the talent we uncover in our staff. We hire them for one role, and then they surprise us with a whole new range of capabilities and ideas."

David once spent 10 days travelling the rugged Arctic wilderness on foot. Pretty impressive, for a city kid.

Jungho Kim

CTO & Chief Architect

Jungho is responsible for shaping Architech's research and development, guiding our technical innovation and strategy, and overseeing solution architecture in our most challenging engagements.

With his product development background, Jungho still loves to write code and build software. As CTO, his ultimate goal is to take a holistic approach to melding technology and people - understanding that our team is what drives Architech forward.

"I love technology. But for customers, it's all about value. That's why we focus on building solutions that aren't about the technology itself, but that make sense for each customer."

VP, Solutions

With a wealth of experience in the telecom realm, Brian combines both strategic and tactical leadership across all Architech engagements within the telecom industry - from business development, delivery, and financial - with a focus on ensuring overall customer satisfaction.

Prior to his role with Architech, Brian's management and consulting background included positions with Rogers, Amdocs, Symcor, Equitrac and ClientLogic.

"Successful projects and lessons learned aside, I am most proud of the long lasting relationships I have developed over the years."

As a child vacationing with his family in Czechoslovakia, a bolt of lightening missed Brian by 15 feet. How he can top that for thrills, we don't know.

Mark Kingston

Director, Business Operations

Mark leverages his diverse software development experience to guarantee Architech is operationally in a position to exceed client expectations. He provides leadership in customer agreements, finance, and in ensuring staff are equipped to excel at what they do.

Mark's prior experience was with IBM and Nortel Networks - both in Canada and Ireland - in the areas of product development, intellectual property, agreements, and mergers and acquisitions.

"What impresses me most about Architech is how absolutely everyone has a consistent focus on delivering the best possible solution for our clients."

In less than a year Mark went from short walks to running a half-marathon; now he barely stops moving within our office.

As a self-described small town Saskatchewan girl, Val is proud of being a "melonhead". We're certain the "RIDERS 4EVAH" tattoo is only a matter of time.
