Canada’s competitive edge is its people

by Mark Barrenechea – Vice Chair, Chief Executive Officer and Chief Technology Officer, OpenText Corporation

Mark Barrenechea highlights the importance of cultivating Canada’s tech talent in order to remain globally competitive in a feature interview with the Financial Post‘s Kevin Carmichael.

“IP and engineering is very mobile. You can optimize the economics by leaving Canada, but, for [OpenText], we haven’t led with that. We’ve led with talent and culture. This is a seminal moment for us. We’re going to invest into modern work and we’re going to invest into our growth rates.”
