We could not have grown so quickly nor implemented such rich programs without the support and feedback from our incredible Board of Directors.”
“TAG is positively impacting and increasing the awareness of technology companies in Georgia,” said Alan Dabbiere, Chairman, AirWatch. “I feel privileged to join the TAG Board of Directors and look forward to working closely with them during the next phase of TAG and Georgia’s technology progress. Georgia is a great place to grow a technology company.”
Dabbiere founded Manhattan Associates (NASDAQ: MANH) and moved the company to the metro-Atlanta area with 30 employees. Manhattan Associates is at 2,200 employees today. AirWatch currently has 350 employees and Dabbiere is confident that its employee growth will nearly double in 2012. “These successes demonstrate what a great environment Georgia has in terms of employment base, transportation with Hartsfield International Airport and overall business environment support,” said Dabbiere.
