Get to know the experts by your side


Matthew Held

Co-Founder & CEO

As a co-founder of Manawa, it’s gratifying to see our concept of a company that delivers super-star service grow into the successful IT firm we’ve become. Overseeing our strategic direction and growth initiatives, I’m naturally looking forward to the success continuing! I also support our vendors and partner relationships — and I have to say, they also support us. We have a great roster of partnerships that help us meet our customer needs. My B-Comm from Ryerson University fueled the entrepreneur in me, and Manawa has been a real treat since day one. When I’m off the clock, I fundraise for the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada and enjoy playing hockey and basketball or a good game of squash. I love to explore the world, and I’m always planning my next journey!


Carmine Tiano

Co-Founder & President

After more than a decade of experience as an IT consultant, I’ve had the privilege to work with many clients — not just to maintain technical resources but, working with the organizations I’ve served, to help them achieve their business goals. IT is so integral to business today that IT strategy is a critical aspect of business planning. As a co-founder of Manawa, I oversee the service we provide,making sure our standards and the talent we bring to the table is in line with our customers’ needs. And that’s what I’ve done with my BSc from Devry University! In downtime, I love to play ball hockey and I’m an avid student of the martial arts.
