Steve Jeffery, president of the Technology Association of Georgia, is leaving the group to take over as CEO of another company.
The Atlanta Business Chronicle reports that Jeffery will become CEO of Brickstream, a developer of customer tracking software.
“I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at TAG and feel that we have accomplished a great deal over the last year,” said Jeffery, who took the position last year and had said he would stay through 2004. “In 2003 we grew membership by over thirty percent, put in all new operational systems, restructured our leadership boards and led several new strategic initiatives.”
Jeffery joined TAG in April of last year.
“Steve has made a significant impact on TAG during his term as president,” said Patrick, TAG chairperson and partner of Deloitte & Touche, in a statement. “He has helped to revitalize TAG by increasing its role in the community, growing membership and strengthening the leadership and financial structure of the association. The changes he has put in place have positioned TAG for future growth.”
The search for a replacement will be led by Dawn Patrick, chairperson of TAG.
Jeffery said he informed TAG “several months ago” that he was looking for a new position.
“We all appreciate the contribution Steve has made to TAG and look forward to his continued and active involvement in TAG at the board level,” said Tripp Rackley, chairman of TAG Advisory Board, in a statement. “Steve spent a considerable amount of time and effort out in the community calling on business leaders to build broader exposure for TAG and to elevate its perception and value throughout the community. These types of efforts will have a lasting effect on the future success of TAG.”
Jeffery said he planned to remain active in TAG.
Jeffery was formerly chairman, president and chief executive officer of Clarus before joining TAG.
