The Metroplex Technology Business Council (MTBC), the largest technology trade organization in Texas, has named FASTSIGNS International, Inc., the worldwide franchisor of FASTSIGNS® sign and graphic centers, a finalist in the Technology Adopter category of the 11th Annual Tech Titans and Titan Fast Tech Awards.

Being nominated and now named a Tech Titan Finalist is both gratifying and humbling.”

“Tech Titans is the premier recognition of fast-growing, highly innovative companies that contribute to the vibrancy of the North Texas economy and make our region an exciting place to live and work,” said Hernan Giraldo, Vice-President Sales of applications software at Alcatel-Lucent, and Chair of the MTBC’s Tech Titans steering committee. “We look forward to showcasing true leaders in our industry and celebrating their hard work and creativity.”

Besides the MTBC and Title Sponsor SoftLayer, other supporters of the Tech Titans Awards event include Ericsson, VCE, RIM, Digital Realty Trust, Fujitsu Network Communications, Deloitte, AT&T, BKD LLP, Huawei, Munck Carter, Alcatel-Lucent, Employer Flexible, BDO, Haynes and Boone LLP, Telecommunications Industry Association, University of North Texas, University of Texas at Dallas, AVMG, Park Place Porsche, creative sponsor SKSW and the Dallas Business Journal. Travis Wolff and Comerica Bank Life Science are sponsors for Fast Tech. The Fast Tech Awards recognize the fastest growing technology, media, telecommunications, life sciences and clean technology companies in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex over a three year period.

The Tech Titans Award winners will be revealed at the Tech Titans Award Gala at the Hilton Anatole in Dallas, Texas, on Friday, August 26, 2011. More information about the event is available at www.metroplextbc.org/techtitans.
