Technology Networking and Marketing Veteran Marci McCarthy Forms New Company

Atlanta, GA (Jan. 1, 2010)T.E.N. - Tech Exec Networks, a technology and information security executive networking and relationship-marketing firm, has been formed by technology networking veteran, Marci McCarthy. McCarthy, CEO and President, created T.E.N. to meet the demand for technology and information security executives to interact with peers, industry visionaries and solutions providers.

T.E.N. will offer the Information Security Executive™ of the Year Award Program Series (ISE™ Program Series) as its flagship program. Considered by many to be “the premier recognition and networking program for security executives,” the ISE Program Series addresses the need for achievement recognition, as well as peer-to-peer exchange about best practices and current issues in security and technology. McCarthy, former CEO and co-founder of Executive Alliance, expanded the ISE Program Series from a local level to a nationally acclaimed event in major cities including Atlanta, Dallas, New York City, San Francisco, and Washington D.C.

The new organization will provide information security and technology executives as well as solutions providers with multiple opportunities for information sharing and collaboration. “I believe that we are at a tipping point for communicating best practices for information security issues. With business moving at a pace more rapid than any time in history, I saw a need for a company that builds a bridge for executives and solutions providers to keep up. T.E.N. is that company,” said McCarthy.

T.E.N. will also offer a portfolio of executive programs to include roundtables, road shows, luminary luncheons and dinners, receptions, custom marketing and VIP programs.
