Triatek recently was recognized by the state of Georgia as a “Small Business Rock Star.” The company was honored at a luncheon hosted by the Georgia Department of Economic Development (GDEcD) and the Georgia Economic Developers Association (GEDA).
“Georgia’s small businesses have a big impact in every corner of our state,” said GDEcD Commissioner Chris Carr. “This is an opportunity to put a spotlight on Georgia’s small businesses and, in particular, highlight some of our fastest growing small businesses through our new ‘Small Business Rock Stars’ program.”
“As Triatek continues to expand internationally, the GDEcD has been a tremendous resource in supporting our efforts,” said Triatek CEO Jim Hall. “They helped identify partners for Triatek and provided advice on exports. Their global offices enable small Georgia businesses to better conduct international commerce. We appreciate the partnership with GDEcD, and are working with them on expanding our business into multiple other countries this year.”
Six Georgia small businesses were honored for being outstanding, unique, and impactful in their community. The winners included Water Shadow Enterprises LLC, of which Triatek is a subsidiary. More than 50 nominations were submitted. They were reviewed and vetted by a panel of judges.
“Small business is key to the good health of Georgia’s quality business environment. It is these same small businesses that account for many of the jobs created in our great state,” said Kevin Shea, president of Georgia Economic Developers Association. “GEDA welcomes this opportunity to join the Georgia Department of Economic Development to shine the spotlight on these very deserving small businesses.”
The Georgia Department of Economic Development plans, manages, and mobilizes state resources to attract new business investment to Georgia and to drive the expansion of existing industry and small business. The Georgia Economic Developers Association provides networking and professional development opportunities for its members, and supports public policies that promote quality job creation and sustainable economic development throughout the state
