History & Past Presidents

History of TER

The Technology Executives Roundtable (TER) was originally founded by Digital Equipment Corporation (DEC) as a company strategy to stay aware of local technology entrepreneurial endeavors across the country.

In 1993, DEC eliminated TER from its plans; however, through the leadership of local sponsors and leaders in the technology community, TER in Atlanta incorporated as an independent non-profit organization.

TER now consists of over 100 high profile CEOs, CFOs, CTOs and General Managers in the technology community of Atlanta.

Over the past few years, TER has been focused on increasing member participation and value through more targeted and compelling programs that meet the needs of the C-suite of technology companies.
