Message from the VP, Chief Client Officer
2021 has been a year of learning. We’ve all had to learn to adapt, be resilient, and find ways to stay connected to others. Through this, each of us has had the opportunity to learn about ourselves and those around us.
Without realizing it, we’ve become used to navigating change, motivating ourselves, finding new ways to work, and perhaps picking up new skills or interests.
For example, I re-ignited my desire for running and started cold water swimming. I embrace both activities daily at sunrise, and through them, I’ve learned how to approach challenges. Additionally, I’ve gained some insight into physiology, health, and even the weather! 455 runs and 354 swims later, and I am reminded how important nature is to me.
So, as we move into 2022, let’s challenge ourselves to keep learning and value what we’ve accomplished so far.

Staff Feature - Meet Wasif Syed
Hi! I’m Wasif Syed, and I’ve been with APEXA as the Director of Infrastructure and Security since 2017. My background is computer science, which I studied at Dalhousie University in Halifax. As an undergraduate, I enrolled in the co-op program and was placed in various large organizations in Ontario. Despite my software-oriented background, the internship placements I received were coincidentally on the infrastructure and security side. These experiences instilled my interest in this sector and led me to seek full-time employment in it. Read more.
