Sue Paish has been appointed CEO of the Digital Technology Supercluster (DTS), one of five industry-led groups funded by the federal government under the Innovation Superclusters Initiative. She will take on the responsibility of building and leading the supercluster that will put BC and Canada in the global forefront of the digital economy. Paish served as president and CEO of LifeLabs Diagnostic Laboratories from 2012. Under her leadership, LifeLabs bought two major diagnostic laboratory operators and expanded to become BC’s fourth largest technology company. Paish led the forging of a partnership with GenXys Health Care Systems to offer advanced precision healthcare based on individual genetic profiles. She has thus been credited for initiating integration of new technologies and advancements while ensuring high-quality outcomes. Paish is expected to exact the maximum from the huge potential of the DTS, with its more than 350 member-organizations, in data analytics, quantum computing and virtual mixed and augmented reality.
