The Technology Association of Georgia (TAG), the state’s leading association dedicated to the promotion and economic advancement of Georgia’s technology industry, today announced Proximus Mobility, a hyperlocal proximity marketing software company, as one of its Top 40 Innovative Technology Companies in Georgia.

TAG’S Top 40 Awards recognize Georgia-based companies for their degree of innovation, the scope and financial impact of their innovations and effect of such innovation in promoting Georgia’s technology industry throughout the U.S. and globally.
“The Top 40 companies are shining examples of what makes Georgia a hotbed for innovation in technology,” said Tino Mantella, president & CEO of TAG. “Georgia is home to more than 13,000 technology companies, so we applaud Proximus Mobility and the other 2012 Top 40 finalists for standing out as leaders in innovation and in Georgia’s technology community. These are the types of companies that will help Georgia become recognized as one of the top states in the nation for technology.”
“This year we had a 30% increase in the number of applications over the past few years. We were very impressed by the quality and breadth of technology companies that applied,” said Dennis Zakas, a partner and founder of Zakas & Leonard, LLP, Chair of Group Office Buys, LLC, and chairperson of the Top 40 Selection Committee. “It was very difficult to choose the Top 40 because of the large number of deserving companies. We expect great things from Proximus Mobility and our other winners.”

This is a great accomplishment for our employees and for our industry-leading location based proximity marketing technology,” stated Proximus Mobility CEO Michael Zeto. “The growth of the technology industry in the state was a key deciding factor in the relocation of Proximus Mobility from Naples, Florida to Atlanta, Georgia.
