Nick Foster

Toronto, ON, Canada


Mr. Nick Foster has worked in the technology industry for thrity years, beginning with a sales role at ComputerLand in Edmonton in 1983 after graduating from the University of Alberta with a Bachelor of Commerce degree. Rising into management very quickly, Mr. Foster was transferred to Toronto where he advanced to leading sales for the Ontario region. Nick joined Softchoice in 1994 as Vice President of Sales and Marketing when the company had twenty-five people and sales of $15 million. During his 18 years with the company, growth was tremendous: sales topped $1 billion and employees numbered over 1100. Nick had many different roles over that time including Senior Vice President of Human Resources, Senior Vice President of Marketing, Senior Vice President of Business Development and Senior Vice President of Operations. Nick is passionate about company cultures, their underlying values and, ultimately, connecting both with a coherent and differentiated brand position.

Mr. Foster became involved with corporate philanthropy when developing the award-winning Softchoice Cares program as a result of the tremendous outpouring of empathy from company employees following the Indian Ocean Tsunami in 2004.  Since then, Nick has led more than a dozen international volunteer groups building houses, community projects and computer labs in Rwanda, Uganda, Kenya and other countries.
