Please join us for lunch and celebrate International Women’s Day, Friday March 6, 2020 with our guest speaker, Ms. Jaime Leverton, Chief Commercial Officer, eStruxture Data Centre.
As the Chief Commercial Officer at Canada’s fastest growing data centre company, Jaime Leverton is responsible for eStruxture’s global sales, distribution, and marketing. Jaime brings over 20 years of industry experience and a strong background in building and scaling high-performing organizations.
Jaime is an accomplished data center and telecom professional, a highly sought-after industry speaker and valued thought leader. She joined eStruxture from her previous role at Cogeco Peer 1 where she served as General Manager and Vice President for Canada and APAC and had direct responsibility for creating and driving revenue programs. Her telecom career also includes tenure in various executive roles with National Bank, BlackBerry, Bell Canada, and IBM Canada. She also proudly sits on the boards of the Stratford Festival, ITAC, and the Merry Go Round Children’s Foundation.
In interviews, Jaime describes her style as "authentic, open, humble, curious and she likes to engage with everyone” - not just her immediate team.   She is very big on collaboration and emotional intelligence and creating mutual value.  Jaime feels that you need to be yourself at work and at home with family and friends. Jaime and her husband are raising two daughters, 9 and 11 years of age. Since they both have busy professional careers, their lives are very hectic, but they do have help in order to keep things in balance.  She is also an avid reader and an avid runner.
Jaime’s focus is on young women in technology and she counsels them on balance and family planning. This is important as there are very few role models for women entering this field.
