Addington has been a TAG board member since 2005, serving most recently as vice chairman and treasurer prior to this new appointment.
“Having Don Addington serve as our chairman is a huge win for TAG. He is a proven leader, a visionary in the software industry and extremely dedicated to our technology community,” said Tino Mantella, TAG CEO and President. “Throughout more than 12 years of actively supporting this organization, Don has been a tireless advocate for Georgia’s tech economy. Each and every member will benefit from his continued leadership.”
"Georgia has a long history of producing technologies that have had global impact. Our industry continues to expand and innovate, particularly in the mobile technology sector, so it is an exciting time to be collaborating with the TAG board, staff and membership,” said Mr. Addington. “It’s a true privilege to serve as chairman, and my goal is simple: to help our member companies grow their businesses. Their success drives job growth in the State, provides exciting career opportunities for our graduates, attracts talent and investment capital, and forms the foundation for continued contribution to the world technology stage.”
The association’s membership includes thought leaders and industry visionaries from a wide range of technology companies as well as Fortune 500 executives, investors, service providers, entrepreneurs and government and civic leaders. TAG membership provides access to specialized groups that focus on all manner of industries as well as 31 specialized societies, which encompass more than a dozen disciplines, from conducting business internationally to raising capital, from outsourcing to project management, technology in entertainment to offshore development solutions.
TAG was launched in January 1999 with the merger of three of the state's largest technology organizations: the Southeastern Software Association, the Business and Technology Alliance and Women in Technology. At its launch, TAG became one of the largest technology organizations in the country.
