Winston Salem, NC (PRWEB) March 9, 2011
Today the North Carolina technology firm DataChambers announced that its CEO Nicholas Kottyan has been named a “Triad Top Catalyst Entrepreneur” by Business Leader magazine.
Kottyan is one of 32 leaders recognized by the publication for their significant impact on the Triad business community. Business Leader said each winner “is a trendsetter and innovator who helped revitalize the local economy, create job opportunities and generate strong company revenues.”
Kottyan joined DataChambers in 2004 and since has led the organization through a period of significant growth. During 2010 alone the company experienced more than 25 percent growth in revenues and nearly 40 percent growth in net income. He also led a significant data center expansion that more than doubled the firm’s capacity to serve clients.
“Nick is a true entrepreneur who has brought a strategic focus to our business and has helped us transform DataChambers into a true market leader,” said Bruce Brown, a principal in the privately held firm. “He has helped us build an unmatched technology team and establish a culture that always puts the customer first.”
Before joining DataChambers, Kottyan was president and CEO of Peak 10, a data center services company he co-founded in 2000. He is a former senior vice president for CT Communications and former president and CEO of Phone America of Carolina. He is immediate past chairman of the North Carolina Technology Association, the primary voice of North Carolina’s technology industry. He also serves on the board of directors for United Way of Forsyth County, chairs one of the Community Impact Councils and serves on the Winston-Salem Chamber of Commerce Technology Council.
The Triad’s Top Catalyst Entrepreneurs will be featured in the upcoming April issue of Business Leader. They were honored at a recent event at the Hawthorne Inn and Conference Center in Winston-Salem.
