We have some exciting news to share – our founder and CEO Micah Adler has been named a 2012 Tech Luminary by the Boston Business Journal and Mass High Tech. One of 30 recipients, Micah this week was commended as one of the drivers and influential leaders of New England’s thriving innovation economy.
This prestigious honor recognizes Micah’s achievements in bringing positive change to the mobile ecosystem and building a sustainable, growing business in New England. In the past year, Micah’s vision helped us successfully develop the Fiksu for Mobile Apps platform, which solves the many challenges mobile app marketers face as they strive to achieve app store discoverability and secure high volumes of loyal users.
As Micah was overseas at the Smartphone & Tablet Games Summit in London this week, I accepted the honor on his behalf at an awards reception and networking event at the House of Blues in Boston. At the event, Mass High Tech bestowed 15 Tech Luminaries, and the Boston Business Journal spotlighted 15 Rising Stars under age 30 in Massachusetts business.
In addition to Micah’s personal award, we as a company were recently named one of the Boston Business Journal’s “Best Places to Work” and one of The Boston Globe’s “Top Places to Work” in Massachusetts. These accolades were made possible because of Micah’s strategic guidance, continuous innovation, and unwavering leadership in pushing our business forward in this dynamic and ever-changing mobile sector.
Congratulations, Micah, on all your successes. We couldn’t be prouder, we share your passion, and we look forward to many more accomplishments. And congratulations to all the Tech Luminary and Rising Star recipients – it’s an honor to be transforming the New England-area technology landscape with some of the best and brightest minds in the industry.
