Founder & chief executive, Herjavec Group
Which tech figurehead do you admire the most?
Bob Metcalfe, the inventor of Ethernet. The idea of two computers talking over a network to each other or a printer is taken for granted today but without Ethernet the modern network would not exist today.
What's the biggest challenge facing the industry no-one is talking about yet?
Ownership of data - if you have my data and you get breached, has someone in effect stolen my property? Was my data ever your data? Who had ownership of it and is responsible?
If you could invite three famous people to dinner, who would they be?
Alexander the Great, Jesus and Nikola Tesla - a warrior, a motivational leader, and an inventor. It would be an interesting evening.
How has 2017 been for you?
Incredible. Herjavec Group is automating and advancing its services like never before. I am so proud of our team. We've expanded across the US and UK and are doing as much business outside of Canada as we are in region. It's amazing growth and we've got a great team.
Which global city best matches your personality?
Vancouver and Los Angeles - I love the views and the sunshine.
What would be your super-hero power?
I'd want to fly!
What makes you nervous?
Very little makes me nervous.
If you could eat one type of food for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Soup - it sounds crazy but I order soup everywhere I go.
