Founder, Chief Technology Officer & Director
Tim is the inventor of KineticD. His main goal was – and continues to be – the enhancement of our products to drive client satisfaction. As Tim puts it, “I do very complicated things to make our customers’ lives simpler.”
One of his early achievements was streamlining the office practices at IBM with an online fax product that eliminated bottlenecks for the sales team during product releases. Observing that time-consuming lineups would occur frequently, he designed a solution that was then sold to 8 other IBM offices around the world.
Prior to developing KineticD, Tim was a Marketing Representative and Systems Engineer at IBM, where he put his expertise and insight to use in all ends of the product development spectrum.
Striking out on his own as an IT consultant, Tim developed internet-based solutions for a variety of clients, from technology vendors to major Canadian finance organizations.
Tim eventually became CTO for one of his clients: BayStreetDirect.com, which was recently bought by NIAD Systems.
Tim holds a B.A.Sc. in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from the University of Waterloo.

In June of 2008, Fortiva had a successful sale to Proofpoint, a leader in email security. In July of 2004 he retired as the CEO of Klocwork after taking the company to the next level through a ‘B round’ of venture funding and initiating two years of rapid growth.

Over a 12-year period, Goodwin guided Fulcrum through its early customer wins, strategic partnerships and investments, increasing mainstream adoption, an initial and secondary offering and, finally, strategic acquisition. Under his leadership, Fulcrum and its customers won several prestigious awards for growth and excellence, including a ComputerWorld Smithsonian Award, CrossRoads A-List, Software Magazine’s Top 100 and many others.
