CARY The North Carolina Technology Association (NC TECH) is getting shown the love by two new corporate sponsors.

Dude Solutions, a Cary-based software-as-a-service provider of operations management solutions, today announced that it is joining the team.

The news closely follows the appointment of Dude Solutions CEO Ed Roshitsh to NC TECH’s Board of Advisors. In this role, Roshitsh will support the booming tech space in North Carolina, home to Dude Solutions headquarters, and promote the association.

“Dude Solutions came on to the North Carolina tech scene over twenty years ago – the early days of a flourishing community,” said Roshitsh, CEO, Dude Solutions, in a statement. “I’m excited to play an active role in nurturing the next generation of tech in North Carolina.”

Founded in 1999, Dude Solutions provides an integrated suite of solutions for operations professionals to streamline work and operate efficiently through better collaboration, insights and data.

“Dude Solutions has an outstanding local growth story with a bright future ahead,” said Brooks Raiford, president & CEO, NC TECH. “I look forward to this partnership, and on behalf of NC TECH, I’d like to welcome them to the association and Ed to the Board of Advisors.”

Separately, RevelOne, one of the largest marketing specialized talent advisory and recruiting firms in the US, is also signing on as a corporate sponsor.

“Expanding our practice to the fast-growing tech industry in North Carolina is a logical step for us, given our deep experience with VC funded and public tech companies.” said Gary Calega, co-founder of RevelOne, in a statement.

RevelOne, founded in 2014, is the go-to talent advisory firm for Sequoia and other top-tier VC’s portfolio companies. Its mission is to help companies sharpen their marketing talent strategies and hire the most qualified people to achieve their growth goals.

“To have companies like RevelOne growing their presence in North Carolina is exactly what the state needs to continue its growth momentum,” said Brooks Raiford, president & CEO, NC TECH. “We look forward to working with RevelOne and experiencing the ways this partnership will benefit our association and the greater tech community.”

The announcements come on the same day NC TECH plans to hold a briefing on its newly released NC TECH “State of Technology Industry Report & Tech Directory” at the Research Triangle Foundation in RTP at 8.30am. The report provides a snapshot of North Carolina’s tech sector and includes a directory of all NC TECH members.
