ATLANTA (April 10, 2023) – The Technology Association of Georgia announced that Kyle Porter, founder of Salesloft, has been selected as the 2022 Technology Hall of Fame of Georgia inductee.
Porter will be honored at the Technology Association of Georgia’s (TAG) Georgia Technology Summit event on May 3, 2023, at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta. Sponsored by PwC US since its inception in 1993, the Technology Hall of Fame of Georgia includes a long list of visionaries, including Georgia Gov. Zell Miller, technology industry leader Tom Noonan and CNN founder Ted Turner.
Porter is an entrepreneur and technology industry leader, passionate about building successful businesses and supporting the growth of the Georgia technology community. Since founding Salesloft in 2011, Kyle has grown the company to over 900 employees and $180M in revenue as CEO. In December 2021, Salesloft was acquired in a majority control transaction by Vista Equity Partners for $2.3B, cementing its position as a leading provider of sales engagement software used by renowned companies such as LinkedIn, Google, Square, IBM, Cisco, as well as 4,000+ others globally.
“Kyle is an outstanding business leader, who under Salesloft has immensely contributed to the growth and development of the sales engagement of numerous organizations,” said Kevin Kelly, PwC Atlanta office Managing Partner. “We are honored to welcome him to the Technology Hall of Fame of Georgia. The innovative community of Georgia continues to grow through the examples set by these great leaders in technology.”
In March 2023, Kyle transitioned to the role of Chairman of the Board at Salesloft, where he continues to provide leadership and strategic guidance to the company.
“I’m deeply honored to be recognized by the Georgia Technology Hall of Fame and to join the esteemed group of innovators who have made such significant contributions to our state’s thriving tech industry,” said Porter. “My journey from day one was inspired by the legendary previous inductees’ achievements and the impact they’ve had on our community. Building Salesloft has been an incredible journey, and I’m grateful for the amazing team who have worked tirelessly to make it a success. This recognition is a testament to their hard work and dedication. I share this honor with them. I’m excited to continue supporting the growth of the Atlanta tech community and helping to build the next generation of successful tech startups!”
“Kyle’s leadership at Salesloft is a shining example of the growth businesses can achieve in Georgia,” said Larry K. Williams, President and CEO of the Technology Association of Georgia (TAG). “Going from a startup to a hundred-million-dollar corporation in a little over a decade is an extraordinary feat. The story of his success is one of many in our state that sets global standards of innovative excellence.”
Kyle will join 2021 inductee Ben Chestnut, the Co-Founder of Mailchimp, along with many other historic technology leaders in the Technology Hall of Fame of Georgia.
