Like most people in stock plan administration, Marcos Lopez sort of “fell into it.” In 1999, the computer science graduate had started Bitontic Solutions and was contracted by the newly formed Solium to build an equity administration platform – known today as Shareworks. What started off as a bit of contract work became a life-long professional passion for Marcos. Now as CEO of Solium, he remains every bit as passionate about creating and optimizing technology to solve business challenges. Marcos was the winner of the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year award for the technology sector, western Canada. Under his leadership, Shareworks has evolved to be a truly global platform used by more than 3,000 companies spanning the globe.
