LEADERSHIP Personified

This week Doug Doane and I travelled to Toronto Canada to take part in a new

conference ‘AceCONNEX 2019’.  Traditionally, tradeshows have been the only

way to connect users and suppliers together in one area.  AceTronic saw a need

in the market to connect customers and suppliers in a more holistic way.  Over

the last 5 years, this idea began to take shape and last year debuted as

AceCONNEX 2019.  Kim Thiara, President and CEO of AceTronic Industrial

Controls, Inc., took a brave step in launching this years conference. The gamble

paid off as more than 200 customers and suppliers showed up to take part and

launched a new beginning for the trade show of the future. 


Kim leads her company with a guiding principal of being of service, “helping

customers achieve their objectives”.  Her passion to ‘help’ and willingness to lead

spills over into the many associations she actively participates in as well.  Specifically,

Canadian Aboriginal Minority Supplier Council (CAMSC), Women’s Business

Enterprise Network (WBENC), the Women’s Business Enterprise (WBE), the

Canadian Association of Mold Makers (CAMM) and the Canadian Plastics Industry

Association (CPIA).


I cannot begin to fathom the long hours spent thinking, preparing, and effort for

such an endeavor, I can only say thank you.  It is the testament of Kim’s great leadership

that they should prevail in the face of long odds and uncertain times.  We at Dalton

are proud to serve alongside her.
