Innovation is the lifeblood of MessageGears and is a core part of our culture,” Barnette said. “It’s an honor to be recognized by TAG for our hard work and achievements but, honestly, we’re just doing what we love. I can't think of a better place to build an innovation-centric company than Atlanta.
ATLANTA (PRWEB) February 23, 2018
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 MessageGears as one of its Top 40 Innovative Technology Companies in Georgia.
TAG’S Top 40 Awards recognize Georgia-based technology companies for their innovation, financial impact, and their efforts at spreading awareness of Georgia’s technology initiatives throughout the U.S. and globally. MessageGears was honored for its unique approach to providing enterprise companies with unprecedented access to their customer data for email marketing, something that isn’t possible with traditional software-as-a-service email service providers. MessageGears was also named a TAG Top 40 Innovative Technology Company in 2014.
“The 2018 Top 40 finalists are an elite group of innovators who represent the very best of Georgia’s Technology community,” said Larry Williams, president and CEO of TAG. “The 2018 Top 40 finalists are shining examples of what makes our state such a hotbed for technology and we applaud them for standing out as leaders in Georgia’s technology community.”
This year’s Top 40 were selected from among more than 100 applications submitted by companies from across Georgia. Companies selected for the Top 40 will be showcased in an exhibition at The Summit 2018 March 20-21 at the Cobb Galleria Centre.
“This year’s Top 40 was more competitive than ever,” said Dennis Zakas, managing partner of Zakas & Leonard, LLP, and chairperson of the Top 40 Selection Committee. “In our quest to showcase the most innovative companies in Georgia, we had to make hard decisions, resulting in the exclusion of numerous deserving companies, many of which had been recognized as a Top 10 company in the past. The companies that we selected this year are truly outstanding.”
MessageGears CEO Roger Barnette said the honor recognizes the company’s drive to push email marketing technology forward, and help their clients succeed.
“Innovation is the lifeblood of MessageGears and is a core part of our culture,” Barnette said. “It’s an honor to be recognized by TAG for our hard work and achievements but, honestly, we’re just doing what we love. I can't think of a better place to build an innovation-centric company than Atlanta.”
The Summit 2018 is expected to draw a crowd of more than 1,500 C-level executives, entrepreneurs, technology professionals and academia to celebrate and recognize Georgia’s technology community. In addition to presentations from some of the top technology influencers in the nation, the newest member of the Technology Hall of Fame of Georgia will be inducted.
