Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) September 09, 2015
T.E.N. CEO & President Marci McCarthy was selected as one of the TiE Top Entrepreneurs for 2015. The recognition honors top metro Atlanta-area entrepreneurs who have a proven track record for success in management and building companies that show growth, profitability, and sustainability.
McCarthy is responsible for driving the strategic direction of T.E.N., including visioning, strategic planning, team building, financial oversight, technology governance and sales and marketing. She serves as spokesperson and represents the company in public venues. Her vision for T.E.N. is to offer an unrivaled dedication to program excellence and customer service while continually adapting to an ever-changing business marketplace. It's this attitude and spirit that differentiates T.E.N. and has made it the foremost provider of targeted, executive-level events for the information security industry throughout North America.
In the last 24 months, T.E.N. went from delivering a few events a month to upwards of three a week, delivering about 100 events in the U.S. and Canada by the end of 2014 with projections to exceed the delivery of over 100 programs by the end of 2015. Also, T.E.N. has capitalized on a rapidly expanding market by offering niche events, such as The ISE® Lions’ Den & Jungle Lounge, which targets innovative companies that are 5 years or less from startup.
This past Spring, McCarthy also launched a second company, ISE® Talent, which provides exclusive information security leadership talent management solutions. Her vision is to aid the security industry, which is struggling with a shortage of security talent, especially for upper-level management positions.
“I believe a successful entrepreneur has both a well-articulated vision and the passion to take the risks and seize opportunities as the market evolves,” said McCarthy, who also credits her team as the foundation for her success. “A successful entrepreneur will surround herself with great people, clients and supporters. The path to success is journey of highs and lows and it is not one that can be walked alone.”
McCarthy will accept her honor on Sept. 12, 2015 during TiECON Southeast at the Renaissance Atlanta Waverly Hotel & Convention Center. The conference brings over 500 private company executives, entrepreneurs, investors, industry experts and educators from across Atlanta and the Southeast.
