ATLANTA and MACON, Ga., March 10, 2015 — The Technology Association of Georgia (TAG), the state’s leading association dedicated to the promotion and economic advancement of Georgia’s technology industry, today announced LBA Ware as one of its Top 40 Innovative Technology Companies in Georgia. TAG will recognize this prestigious group at the 2015 Georgia Technology Summit (GTS) on March 25, 2015, at the Cobb Galleria Centre.

TAG’S Top 40 Awards recognize Georgia-based technology companies for their innovation, financial impact, and their efforts at spreading awareness of Georgia’s technology initiatives throughout the U.S. and globally.

“The 2015 Top 40 finalists are an elite group of innovators who represent the very best of Georgia’s Technology community,” said Tino Mantella, president & CEO of TAG. “The 2015 Top 40 finalists are shining examples of what makes our State such a hotbed for technology and we applaud them for standing out as leaders in Georgia’s technology community.”

This year’s Top 40 Companies were selected from among over 100 applications submitted by companies from across Georgia. Companies selected for the "Top 40" will be showcased in an exhibition at The 2015 Georgia Technology Summit.

“Our eleventh year of the Top 40 was an overwhelming success, based on the number of truly innovative companies that participated in the competition," said Dennis Zakas, a partner and founder of Zakas & Leonard, LLP, Chair of Group Office Buys, LLC, and chairperson of the Top 40 Selection Committee. "The Top 40 winners demonstrate the depth and breadth of Georgia's
technology community.”

This is the second year in a row TAG has named LBA Ware as one of its Top 40 Innovative Technology Companies in Georgia. LBA Ware develops Software as a Service (SaaS) solutions for the mortgage lending and banking industries.

“It is an exciting time to be in the software business. The mortgage lending industry is breaking free of the recession, turning to intelligent technology partners to bolster their business and increase profitability,” said Lori Brewer, founder and lead software engineer at LBA Ware. “I am excited to be creating solutions that help our clients grow and prosper,” Brewer added.

The 2015 Georgia Technology Summit is expected to draw a crowd of more than 1,300 C-level executives, entrepreneurs, technology professionals and academia to celebrate and recognize Georgia’s technology community.
