Tom Auger

Chief Technology Officer

As a C-suite executive for nearly two decades, Tom has managed and empowered technical and creative teams to design, develop, and deliver customized solutions in productstartup, and services contexts. Tom has that unusual dual skillset of the seasoned creative and the technical guru, which allows him to think big while weighing realistic implementation details.

In addition to supporting, growing, optimizing, and mentoring cross-functional teams, Tom is an animated and enthusiastic facilitator, regularly collaborating with senior stakeholders and clients in design thinking or technical solution architecture workshopping in real-time. Tom endeavours to leverage his considerable business acumen gained over decades of strategic work across nearly all sectors to bring discernment and 360-degree thinking to even the most tactical issues.

Tom is a first-generation digital native who thrives in highly creative, strategic engagements where his broad range of experience can be brought to bear holistically on the problem space. Having a complete hands-on grasp over the past 30+ years in software architecture and development, IT, web design, IoT, digital experience design, interaction and user experience, fabrication and prototyping as well as very strong communication, facilitation and illustration skills, Tom is equally at home in the boardroom, the scrum standup, the conference stage or the classroom. 

Tom is a fervent advocate of equity, inclusivity, and accessibility, and actively seeks opportunities to lend his values and training around DEI and universal access to create, support, or amplify positive organizational and cultural change. He is passionate about the social enterprise and innovation space and is dedicating the “back half” of his career to pursuits that bring true social and cultural value into the world.


I tried several home care companies before but I wasn’t happy with them sending different caregivers all the time…Just Like Family has offered me the stability and consistency I needed for my dad to stay at home safe.

When I realized my mom’s Alzheimer is getting worse and she needs help I didn’t know where to start and what to do…but the people at Just Like Family gave me all the information I needed and since I started with them my mom is very happy and well taken care of.

What I like about Just Like Family’s Caregivers is that they are very caring and dependable so I trust them with my life.

Christine C. Langley

The connection my parents have with their Caregiver is that of a close friend, not an employee that provides a service, so they can’t wait for the days when she visits them.

Paul and Leeanne are great to work with. They are professional, empathetic, kind and totally understood my needs. They have amazing staff that are kind, caring and respectful adhering to Covid protocols. They were there for me when I needed their assistance with my elderly mother. They answered all my questions and truly supported us.... Just like Family. I highly recommend them. You will not be disappointed.
