Hello! My name is Laurence Cadieux, and I’m a Communication Coordinnator here at Devolutions. My role includes overseeing the content strategy and development of our blog, managing the content and communication for our VIP advocate platform “Devolutions Force,” and working closely with our PR partners around the world. I also handle our off-site content opportunities (magazines, journals, newspapers, etc.). Academically, I have a bachelor’s degree in marketing. When I’m not working, I sing in a band, and I enjoy watching my favorite movies again and again. I also love cooking, and during the pandemic, I became a bread expert — I can now bake the most amazing key lime pie on earth (if I do say so myself!). Plus, I recently discovered LEGO and there is no turning back — I’m hooked! I’m always happy to help, and you can reach me directly at

An Update on Devolutions’ Pinball Machine Empire

Here at Devolutions, we work very hard — because nothing is more important to us than helping the members of our community secure and control the IT chaos. But every now and then, we like to take a break and have some fun. And when that time arrives, you can find many of us heading towards our favorite room at Devolutions HQ: the Pinball Arcade.

Anyone who knows our CEO David shouldn’t be surprised that we have a glorious — and growing — pinball empire. David LOVES pinball. He’s basically our very own “Pinball Wizard” He’s not just a player, he’s a true collector. And it’s really generous of him to put all of his pinball machines here so that we can play them!
