Technology Integrator 2018:
Top Talent Under 40

Each year, the team at Technology Integrator has the honor of sorting through nominations from every corner of the industry to distinguish a select few.

The nominees are those that have invested time in their industry, in their team, and, most importantly, in themselves. The maturity exhibited is born from a realization that their efforts are best spent bettering those around them. We find that age and experience can fluctuate from honoree to honoree, but the distinction they bring to their position is unanimous.

To these winners, who acknowledge that success in the custom integration business is a group endeavor, and that they are truly “taking one for the team;” we offer congratulations and our wish for continuing success.
