When thinking about the appropriate managing partner for Canoja Technologies it was more than simple experience or career longevity that mattered. Character and vision were the requisites, and that’s where Isi comes in.
Having almost 30 years of experience in building and scaling engagement models with 15 years of that experience in significant leadership positions is one thing. Being a key Senior Solutions Architect for Amazon Web Services is one thing. Having the quality of your work and leadership skills result in the assignment to the Public Sector Department of Defense Solutions Architecture team is a whole different level. Being entrusted with the security clearance to provide technical design and architecture guidance for U.S., Army and U.S. Air Force customers, speaks volumes to the level of integrity Isi brings to Canoja Technologies.
During his almost 30 year career, Isi has been a much sought after lecturer and a prolific writer having contributed dozens of articles and white papers to key industry journals helping pave the way for the next generation of technology architects and future leaders.
These levels of skills and trust are the backbone of Canoja Solutions.

He was instrumental in running an Afghani hospital and halting the selling of valuable medicines on the black market.
Working under pressure is not an issue after having done a tour at the Balad Emergency room in Iraq; the busiest trauma center in the country. Through his efforts, they achieved an unheard of 98% survival rate.
He stepped aside from a promising corporate career upon his honorable discharge, to provide care for ailing family members, and now is poised to infuse his leadership and compassion to Canoja Technologies.
