About

Mike Leblanc: CEO

Blue Spurs was created by Mike LeBlanc in 2012 to help companies accelerate reaching their business goals through the use of innovative technology solutions. Having been in the industry for over 20 years, he realized the potential of the Internet early on. Mike was one of the first Java Certified Developers in Canada and has been involved in Internet systems development since the early '90s having implemented dozens of mission critical web-based systems.

Always both business and technology focused, he co-founded icGlobal in 1998. This was an award winning LMS provider. He sold it to SmartForce (Now Skillsoft) in 2001 which at the time was the largest eLearning provider in the world. He also co-founded Ensemble Collaboration which developed enterprise collaboration solutions which sold to Global Mentoring in 2006. Recently he led the technology division of Chalk Media and built a team of over 50 technology professionals. He also spearheaded the development of a mobile based content publishing platform. Chalk was sold to Research in Motion in 2009. While at RIM Mike led numerous product development teams across North America including BlackBerry App World, EBay, BlackBerry News, and Chalk Pushcast. He left in 2012 to start Blue Spurs.

Mike and his team have a history of creating innovative solutions that are sought after in the market place. Blue Spurs focuses on using our skills, experience, and excellent customer service to deliver next generation solutions.
