CFO of ATS Communications Receives Award Amongst Tech Leaders

CONCORD, CA – ATS Communications, a leading managed technology services provider (MTSP), announced today that Maggie Tristan CFO, has been recognized at a national convention for being one of the top women in tech. Tristan received the “Women in Technology” award at the Technology Assurance Group (TAG) 20th Annual Convention in Dallas, Texas. The event took place on November 7-10 at the Hyatt Regency and was filled with the industry’s top MTSPs. Tristan was celebrated for her role as a leader in the community and was acknowledged for building a very successful company in a field that is predominantly comprised of men. The awarding organization, TAG, is an organization of independently-owned MTSPs who collectively represent nearly $800M in products and services.

Tristan’s approach to leadership is evident in her philosophy towards achievement. “It was definitely satisfying for our company to be acknowledged among such a talented group of CFOs but this award doesn't just belong to me, it belongs to our entire team,” states Tristan. “One of the things I’m proudest of is the culture that we’ve built at ATS. We’ve taken a more feminine approach to getting things done and it’s very satisfying to see our company excelling. I feel so grateful to work with a team like ours and we expect to keep this momentum going for years to come.”

One of pillars of ATS’ unique approach to business is that they are the only provider that protects their customers from the two risks of technology: obsolescence and cost. As their customers' trusted technology advisor, they’ve earned their position as the market leader through proven products and services.

Brian Suerth, President of TAG has had a front-row view of ATS’ growth over the years and had some comments to add about Tristan’s role within the business community. “Maggie has always been so talented, and we were so happy to present her with this well deserved award. We’re thrilled that our other Members are fortunate enough to be around her, so that they can learn from her unique perspective and find new solutions for their customers. It’s no secret that our industry is predominantly made up of men, and we are thrilled to have another role model within our group, who just so happens to be a woman. As a father of two daughters, it’s such a privilege to see role models like her, setting such a strong example for our future generations.”
