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.

I’m Steve Lamarre and I’m B4 Networks’ Service Manager.
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.
