For the 2009 event, winners will be announced at the October 30th luncheon at the Hyatt Aventine in La Jolla.

“We’re extremely honored in being included among the top technology companies in the region, and the credit goes entirely to our team,” said Meyar Sheik, CEO of Certona. “The current economic environment has been challenging for the retailers our team supports, but our staff has helped our retail clients increase their online sales, average order values and repeat business. I couldn’t be more proud of them!”

As the leading voice representing the U.S. technology industry, TechAmerica takes pride in recognizing outstanding regional companies every year at its annual awards ceremony. This year numerous local San Diego companies were nominated for their technological or business innovation; exceptional products or service; product marketplace validation; perseverance in the face of adversity; and community involvement for consideration in nine categories, including Internet/Web Commerce; Computers and Related Products; Communications Products and Services; Clean Technology; Defense/IT Service; Semiconductor, Industrial and Analytical Instrumentation; Medical Technologies; and Outstanding Emerging Growth.

Certona was selected as a finalist in the Internet/Web Commerce category for its Resonance personalization and revenue optimization technology platform that leverages the power of shopper profiling and individualized customer targeting to deliver highly relevant content to retail customers.

“We are amazed at the response we have received surrounding the TechAmerica High Tech awards,” said Kevin Carroll, regional director, TechAmerica San Diego. “This year will be a challenge to choose winners in each category based on the achievements these companies have experienced.”
