Company Info and Technology Manager’s Biography

PIN Marketing and Technology is a venture project of the parent company PIN SERVICES Ltd., which has been in business since 1998.  PIN SERVICES Ltd. (www.pin.ca) is located in beautiful Victoria, British Columbia and provides services across Canada and around the world.

M. Brian Palmer, Technology Manager and company partner, has had a diverse and interesting career, mainly in the fields of IT and Education. While Brian graduated with Distinction from the University of Guelph with a degree in Physical Chemistry his diverse interests took him far afield.

After obtaining a degree in Education from the University of Western Ontario and teaching High School Physics, Math, and Computer Science at inner city schools in Toronto Brian fulfilled a dream to move out west and ended up attending the University of Victoria. After a semester of math and computer science courses Brian became employed in BC Hydro’s IT department and worked his way up from Help Desk to Server and Network Administration and Project Management.

Brian’s path lead him to become dissatisfied with current modes of technology use and education and a chance encounter lead him to form a partnership with the President of PIN Services, Eric Jordan, and a new venture was formed.

Brian believes that to create positive change in people’s lives and in the ways we are living new modes of choosing, using and supporting technology are required. The ability and vision to achieve this is Brian’s core expertise.

Brian is, and has been, a competitive marathon runner, triathlete, and road and mountain biker. He is currently an aspiring guitarist who performs at venues around Victoria and volunteers in his free time as a tutor for Literacy Victoria.
