Rochester, NY (PRWEB) June 12, 2010
David LaLopa, CEO of PC Design Lab, was recently awarded the prestigious 2010 Pariemus Entrepreneur of the Year Award for his commitment to helping Rochester businesses expand globally. The award was presented to David at a private dinner held at Oak Hill Country Club.
"It is truly an honor to be recognized by this award," said recipient David LaLopa. "Not only does it serve to validate the effort of striking out on one's own, but also reflects on the importance that the members of Pariemus have placed upon entrepreneurship in Rochester."
Pariemus is a group of Rochester-area entrepreneurs, innovators, academics, and executives that meet to collaborate, share stories, and work to build a solid foundation for local businesses. This year's award marks the first award granted to a member of the Pariemus entrepreneur group.
"Dave's dedication to local business, spirit of entrepreneurship, and continued success worldwide represents the best of Pariemus," said Jeff Valentine, co-founder of Pariemus and CEO of Callfinity. "I'm proud that he's a part of our talented group of professionals."
Tim Scahill, Pariemus director and President of The Layer 8 Group, praised LaLopa's accomplishment. "Dave is one of the most active members of the group. His success at PC Design Lab is a direct result of his tenacity as an entrepreneur. He inspires all of us to expand our horizons and continue to create jobs for skilled workers in the Rochester community."

Pariemus is a Latin word meaning "We will create." It is a group of local entrepreneurs and CEOs that supports growth in Greater Rochester and enjoys getting together for drinks without a formal agenda or sales guys/job seekers/service providers trying to sell something. It's an exclusive organization by design to ensure that this experience remains true to the original intentions conceived more than four years ago, so membership is by invitation only. The group will occasionally offer additional programs, but more often than not, the only item on the agenda is to chat with other local business leaders. Pariemus is a trademark.
