Tom Fedro, President of Paragon Software Group Corp., has been named an Orange County finalist in the “Best Technology Manager” category in Tech in Motion’s Third Annual Timmy Awards, which recognize the top workplaces for tech professionals. Fedro was chosen from a field of more than 275 nominees and joins the ranks of past notable finalists including Jim Plush of CrowdStrike, Mike Selberis of Glidewell Laboratories and Nick Newsom of Ytel.

“Tom is a rare breed of top-level executive who takes a personal interest in his employees’ success – both in business and in life.

Fedro co-founded Irvine-based Paragon Software Group Corp. in 2008 and spearheaded the business strategy and operations plan for the company, while also hiring the team for its execution. Paragon specializes in disaster recovery and backup software solutions for small business and midmarket enterprises along with embedded file system driver technologies used by large manufacturers of consumer devices including Cisco, Seagate, Western Digital, ASUS, Toshiba, Hewlett Packard, Hitachi and many others.
