A new trade group, the Technology Association of Hamilton County, has formed to help elevate the technology industry’s presence and help member companies grow.
Ron Brumbarger, president of BitWise Solutions and chairman of the Hamilton County Alliance Board, said the technology industry is the backbone to improving local economy.
“As an owner of a technology company, I can attest to the importance technology companies play in the local economy,” said Brumbarger, who formed the association. “I’m excited to be a founding member of the Technology Association and am looking forward to making Hamilton County the Midwest’s crown jewel of technology.”
The association will provide its members best-practice information, a forum for communication and networking and the opportunity to collaborate and partner with other technological member firms. Roundtable groups will allow members to raise and explore technology issues in eight business areas: executives, human resources, sales, marketing, technical services, finance, project management and real estate/facilities.
Jeff Burt, president of Hamilton County Alliance, said technology companies have the power to help communities build success despite today’s economic climate.
“Technology companies can have a significant impact on the future economic health of Hamilton County,” said Burt. “The Technology Association will provide focus on this sector and seek opportunities to attract new companies to the area.”
