The Tampa Bay Technology Forum (TBTF) is a non-profit organization based on Greater Tampa Bay. Founded in 2002, the TBTF's primary goals are to establish Tampa Bay as the technology sector leader in the Southeast and to drive innovation.
As part of this innovation, the TBTF has created Industry Achievement Awards to recognize key technologies, companies, projects, and individuals for their outstanding contribution to the local technology marketplace, as well as represent how the Tampa Bay area continues to transform technology across the country.One of these awards is the Emerging Technology Leader of the Year which recognizes and up and coming professional who has made a positive impact on their company and the technology industry.
We're excited to announce that this year's winner for the Emerging Technology Leader of the Year (30 and Under) award goes to our very own, Ryan Clarke, Founder and CEO, for his contributions in providing technology design and project management services to corporations, allowing them to effectively manage their technology and focus on their core business.
"It's quite an honor to be named as an Emerging Technology Leader of the Year in the Tampa Bay community," said Clarke. "The SiteREADY team and I have worked hard over the past three and a half years to not only make a name for ourselves in Tampa Bay, but also challenge the routines of organizations nationwide. Our company sees great growth potential for technology leadership and we will always call Tampa Bay 'home'. Just as Mayor Bob Buckhorn stated last Friday night: 'We're going to be that place in America that everybody wants to be' and I am excited to be part of that."At only 29 years of age, Clarke's vision for SiteREADY is that of an experienced leader. He has built an Advisory Board of locally- and nationally-recognized executives who provide ideas and guidance for growth opportunities. This award comes at an exciting time for the company - on the heels of an organization structural announcement made last week in preparation for future growth in 2016.Congratulations on your success, Ryan Clarke!
