Hi, I’m Bryan Lachapelle, and I’m the President of B4 Networks.
I started working with technology since early childhood, and routinely took apart computers as early as age 13. I received my education in Computer Engineering Technology from Niagara College. Starting b4 Networks was always a dream for me, and this dream became true in 2004. I originally started b4 Networks to service the residential market, but found that my true passion was in the commercial and industrial sectors where I could truly utilize my experience as a Network Administrator for a large Toronto based Marine Shipping company.
My passion today is to ensure that each and every client receives top of the line services.
My first love is for my wonderful family. I also enjoy the outdoors, camping, and helping others. I’m an active Canadian Forces Officer working with the 613 Fonthill Army Cadets as a member of their training staff.

In her newest role as Customer Service Manager, Amanda works closely with our managed clients to ensure they are always getting the best possible service from our team.
I’m Alex Vandersteen and I’m the Operations Manager for B4 Networks.
As Operations Manager, I’m responsible for making sure that our staff provide all of our clients with the excellent friendly support they have come to expect from B4 Networks.
I’ve lived in the Niagara Region all my life, and wouldn’t trade it for anything. I love the region, with it’s great scenery, interesting attractions, and fantastic people.
After attending and graduating from the Computer Engineering Technology program at Niagara College in 2011, I furthered my education by training for and becoming a Microsoft Certified Professional.
I have been working with computers and networks for most of my life, and love what I do. I look forward to providing top tier technical support your businesses.
I’m Steve Lamarre and I’m B4 Networks’ Network Administrator.
After graduating from Niagara College’s Computer Engineering Technician program in 2008 I split my time between Audio Visual and Information Technology work for both non-profit and profitmaking businesses.
Having a mostly non-profit focused past I have grown a love to work with people to make sure they’re getting the most out of their systems and to help get to the next level with minimal cost involved. Whether it’s backups, antivirus protection, Unified Threat Management or just server maintenance, I always feel better when I know each client has the right services and service plans to meet their needs.
I’m excited to help grow our service team. I hope to always keep our team focusing on the fact that we support people, we’ve all just chosen to do that by maintaining and fixing their systems.

As a service technician, it is my responsibility to ensure the smooth operation of your systems. If you have any issues it would be my pleasure to answer your questions and provide a resolution. The best part of my job is interacting directly with our clients.

Marketing and Office Administrator
Hi, I’m Brittnee Orsini and my role here at B4 networks is the Marketing and Office Coordinator.
My passion for marketing began at the young age of 12 years old after watching “What Women Want”. The endless creative opportunities and strategic development behind each marketing campaign in the film is one of the reasons I decided to pursue a future in Marketing.
I graduated from Brock University with a degree in Sports Management. A few years after graduating from Brock, I decided to further my knowledge of marketing and I enrolled in the Sport and Event Marketing Post-Graduate program at George Brown College. I graduated from the program with honours in 2013.
After college, I interned for a Sports Clubs and a full-service Marketing agency in Toronto which gave me the required skills to be successful in my role here at B4 networks. There is no better team of people that I’d rather be on this crazy adventure with!
