Trinnex is here and we’re so glad to finally meet you. As President of Trinnex, I’m so honored to work with infrastructure clients in solving for their digital solution needs. Read on to learn more about who Trinnex is and what to expect from us from day one.
Who is Trinnex?
Trinnex, a wholly owned subsidiary of CDM Smith, provides utilities and infrastructure owners an on-ramp to their digital journey through processes, software tools, and partnership. The company was born from a 75-year infrastructure legacy built by CDM Smith, but with tech start-up agility. Read the official CDM Smith announcement introducing Trinnex as a new subsidiary.
“Trinnex is about helping clients navigate their digital journey; providing them the right tools and advising them on the right approach to transform their data to make the right decisions.” - Amy Corriveau
The name “Trinnex” represents the magic that happens at the intersection of trust, innovation, and experience by fusing bold innovation with deep experience in digital strategies and software solutions.
The Trinnex Team
The Trinnex team combines first-hand engineering and infrastructure consulting experience with digital solutions expertise. Our Trinnex leaders include:
- Rajan Ray – the VP of Strategy & Marketing analyzing market trends to set the company’s path towards providing positively disruptive software and services solutions
- Cory Rogers – the VP of Digital Consulting & Services collaborating with clients hands-on to pioneer digital solutions
- Greg Brazeau – the VP of Sales making sure clients’ needs are heard and met throughout their journey
- Eoin Howlett – the VP of Product driving the product roadmap to meet current and future needs
The whole team includes 50+ Trinnex employees, remotely distributed across different locations and representing different disciplines such as software development, implementation services, engineering, and consulting. Raj is excited for what is to come, saying “We are fortunate to have fantastic clients that have helped us craft beautifully-designed, purpose-built software that truly address infrastructure resiliency. This coupled with an experienced, diverse team of some of the best minds in our industry is a combination that makes our work energizing, motivating, and impactful.”
What to expect from us
No one digital journey is alike. Every organization takes different paths and at varying paces, faces slightly different challenges, and has different resources available to take on new projects. Trinnex understands that today’s infrastructure leaders need more than off-the-shelf tools or another big software project, especially when crisis after crisis hits and stakeholders expect reliable services at all times.
Trinnex considers this as a quest towards digital-first resiliency, where it’s not just about the technology but how to build upon an organization's strengths. Greg suggests, “as an advisor to a municipality or water/wastewater organization, there is a lot riding on our advice. No two clients are alike and digital transformation is a constantly moving target. To properly guide organizations down this path, there is a delicate balance of pushing the envelope on technology without over-rotating so that we can ensure all staff are engaged and providing valuable input. Our job is to know when and what tools are suitable, and the steps needed to get clients from point A to point B.”
