SHEVY LEVY | CEO
Shevy is Lambda Solutions’ co-founder and CEO. Shevy was inspired to start up Lambda Solutions in 2002, after spending 20 years in the education space, pushing frontiers of Instructional Design and Development, working with various eLearning systems such as SumTotal. By then, she had an entrepreneurial passion for building companies, ranging from tech-oriented organizations to the popular Vancouver-based cafe chain, Trees Organic Coffee.
That passion for creating companies of lasting value and strong leadership has helped make Lambda Solutions into what technology startup consultants Rocket Builders call a top company that delivers value to clients — and a company poised to be a major winner of market opportunities. Shevy continues to take Lambda Solutions forward as a cutting-edge company that welcomes innovation and prides itself on supporting its customers’ goals.

Alfie the dog plays the role of Chief Barking Officer at Lambda. Our trusted mascot, you will hear Alfie speaking up on many of our calls. Alfie also has a bit of a housekeeping role, as he has taken it upon himself to clean up the remnants of lunch left on the floor, sort through the garbage to make sure no bits of food are left behind, and staring intently at his coworkers while they eat (to make sure they are chewing properly, we are sure). He is passionate about training and learning, and has a nose for bad teaching. Alfie’s credentials include a BA with distinction in telephone etiquette, and a Masters in puppy-dog eyes. In his free time, Alfie enjoys long walks on the beach, and sleeping under our boardroom table during meetings.
