At Cableshare, Doug worked as a senior programmer, a project leader for software development, and the supervisor of accounting and billing systems. At Rogers, he managed the I.T. department for the engineering division.

Doug lives in Dorchester, Ontario and is currently active with the London Business Networking group. Over the years he coached hockey and baseball in Kitchener, London and Dorchester.
Almost 20 years in the networking field, much of it in a corporate setting, has given Rob Pelletier the experience and know-how to handle the types of I.T. issues that businesses of all sizes face. Whether it's business network implementation, maintenance and security, or system sales, Rob will be with you to guide you through the entire process. His vast knowledge gives Rob the unique ability to educate his customers on how to better use their technology, whether it's the business owner who wants to be more hands off, or the department head who wants to get down to the nitty gritty of their I.T. infrastructure.
Rob has a 3 year diploma in Electronics Engineering Technology and the Microsoft MCSE certification. He started Marathon I.T, in 2004 when he realized personalized service for a company's I.T. needs was lacking in the industry.
Rob is a member of the London Chamber of Commerce, the London Business Boosters networking group, and a board member of the London District Transportation Club. An avid sports fan, Rob is an enthusiastic supporter of the London Knights and Toronto Blue Jays. When he's not working with his clients, Rob enjoys spending time with his wife, daughter and granddaughter.
