The TAG Impact Award recognizes a TAG member serving on a society board who embodies the ideals of servant leadership and advances the TAG mission to connect, promote, influence and educate Georgia’s technology ecosystem, to advance the innovation economy. Members from TAG’s 21 societies nominate their peers for the Impact Award and applications are then voted on within the TAG community.
“The Impact Award is the highest honor you can receive as a TAG Member and something special to aspire to as you build your career and serve your community,” said Kyle Tothill, Co-Founder and Managing Director of eHire – an Impact Award sponsor at the Georgia Technology Summit. “Sugra has created a lasting impact on Georgia innovation because of her work with the TAG Supply Chain Society.”
Naqvi serves as the Regional Executive Director of FastTek Global and is the TAG society membership chair for Supply Chain, Logistics & Manufacturing. Naqvi has been a proud member of TAG for four years.
“TAG proudly hosts 21 societies, representing a wide variety of technology disciplines – from functional to industry-specific, within Georgia’s vast technology ecosystem,” said Larry Williams, President and CEO of TAG. “The Impact Award is a unique honor that recognizes one individual from these societies that has helped to refine the Georgia technology landscape in a meaningful way.”
Naqvi received her award on stage at the Georgia Technology Summit on April 27th at the Georgia World Congress Center.
