TECHSOFT Wins 2009 Industry Appreciation Excellence Award for Information Technology
TECHSOFT has received a 2009 Industry Appreciation Excellence Award for Information Technology from Team Santa Rosa and the Pensacola Chamber of Commerce.
The award was announced September 24 during the 2009 Industry Appreciation Luncheon held by Team Santa Rosa and the Pensacola Chamber of Commerce at the Scenic Hills Country Club. The luncheon is held annually to celebrate the accomplishments of existing businesses in the area. Among the guests this year was Florida Lt. Gov. Jeff Kottkamp.
TECHSOFT was among 17 local companies to be honored. The award recognized the contributions the company made in the past year to Escambia County's economic growth, as well as its corporate citizenship.
"Not only does TECHSOFT contribute significantly to the Escambia County's economy with the salaries paid to our local employees and purchases from local vendors, but TECHSOFT and our employees are involved in making Pensacola a better place, both for work and play," said TECHSOFT Vice President Dan Shanholtz.
TECHSOFT provides financial support to a variety of professional and civic organizations, including ITGulfCoast, AFCEA, Pump-A-Pint, and the Pensacola Christmas Parade.
In addition, TECHSOFT team members serve on numerous committees, including the Technology Committee of the Santa Rosa School Board IT, the Internet Services Advisory Committee at PJC, and the Computer Programming and Applications Advisory Committee at PJC.
"I'm pleased that TECHSOFT has won this award, it is nothing compared to the pride I have for being a part a team that not only cares about the local community, but actively works to make it better," Shanholtz said.
TECHSOFT's community involvement is expected to continue to grow not only in Pensacola, but also in Charleston, South Carolina, where the company operates a satellite office.
