CEO & Shareholder
Ann Chow was born in Vietnam and raised in Canada. She graduated from the University of Toronto with a Bachelor’s Degree in Commerce and continued in accounting and finance until starting her own company 17 years ago. At the time, she recognized that IT support for dental providers was lacking and set out to fill a gap in the market.
As the company’s CEO, Ann has established ITEK Solutions as a leading MSP, (Managed Services Provider), in Canada and positioned it for expansion into the United States as Metallic IT Powered by Itek Solutions. She believes that MSPs play an important role in providing the best possible care and she takes pride in reducing downtime to allow for medical and dental providers to focus on their patients. While a career in technology wasn’t part of Ann’s initial plan, it has been incredibly rewarding, and she hopes to encourage other women to consider making it a part of theirs.
Ann is passionate about increasing access to educational and professional opportunities for those who may not have them otherwise. Her position offers her the chance to mentor employees and empower them to be the best they can be. She considers the team she has built to be one of her greatest accomplishments.
Ann and her husband have three children. Outside of work, she volunteers at St. Andrews College in Canada, serving as an executive of the Parents Guild. She is also passionate about self-defense and practices Filipino Martial Arts.
