ATLANTA, Jan. 27, 2014 –The Technology Executives Roundtable (TER), an association that consists of more than 120 CEOs, CFOs and general managers in Georgia’s technology community, announced today that Asif Ramji, president and CEO of Paymetric, has been appointed president of TER, succeeding Paul Ilse for 2014.
In addition, for 2014, Philip Naples, senior consultant at Pritchard & Jerden, Inc., will serve as TER’s vice president; Bob Woosley, executive director of Frazier & Deeter, LLC., will serve as the group’s treasurer; and Huff Logue, CEO of ExecuLinks, will serve as secretary.
“In 2014 I hope to continue to foster TER’s success in bringing Atlanta’s high-tech executives together to share and test new ideas so that we can continue to push the technology industry forward,” said Ramji.
During Ramji’s time as president and CEO of Paymetric, the company has become the global enterprise leader for cloud-based secure integrated payments. With more than 18 years of experience directing companies within the software and payment transaction processing industries, Ramji also serves as an advisory board member for the Technology Association of Georgia’s Technology Committee and is a member of both the Atlanta CEO Council and the Atlanta Chamber of Commerce.
As a senior consultant for Pritchard & Jerden, Naples provides consulting and advisory services to large organizations, specifically focusing on high growth and innovative organizations. He also leads g7 Insurance Services, a division of Pritchard and Jerden that provides insurance brokering to organizations in the technology and life sciences industries. Naples is an active member of the Technology Association of Georgia.
Woosley serves as executive director of Frazier & Deeter where he leads the firm’s entrepreneurial consulting practice and directs strategic growth initiatives on both a national and local level. He is also a member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants, the Metro Atlanta Chamber of Commerce and is on the board of Financial Executives Think Tank.
Logue is CEO of ExecuLinks. In this role, he uses a patented process that provides scientific data about candidates that cannot be detected in an interview. Through this process he has dramatically reduced the risk and costs of a bad hire generating quantifiable impacts on revenue and profits.
“Asif and his leadership team members each have impressive histories within the technology space, and I am confident they will continue to advance TER as the leading executive technology forum in Georgia,” said Paul Ilse, immediate-past president of TER and CEO of Aptean. “With the new 2014 board in place, members can expect an invaluable learning experience from Georgia’s leading technology executives.”
