MORRISVILLE,Ben Griffith, vice president and general manager of Peak 10, says the firm agreed to support next week’s “The Tech Exec” networking event for several reasons.

“We need to concentrate on bringing together the leadership of the entrepreneurial and technology communities to forge a successful marketplace in the RTP area,” says Griffith. “This is one way to understand and get plugged into what’s going on — to ask questions and listen.”

The Tech Exec is a new, quarterly networking event for c-level executives launched by Local Tech Wire and ClearImagePR. The first event will be April 10 starting at 5:30 PM and will be hosted by the Morrisville Chamber of Commerce.

“It’s time to put business aside for a moment and get creative,” Griffith says of The Tech Exec. “In Raleigh, we’re here to listen to what our customers need and to supply products and services to meet those needs, We want to get to know other enterprise-level clients and understand their business better.”

Peak 10, SAS, Insignia MetaPartners, Wind Channel Communications and the Morrisville Chamber are sponsoring the event.

Pre-registration is required, but there is no cost to attend. For information or to register, contact Cindy Stranad (
