StoredTech Makes Integrated Investment

Thank you to StoredTech, a provider of managed IT services, which recently made an increased commitment to the Chamber and the Chamber Foundation. The company, headquartered in upstate New York, has been a Wake Forest Chamber member since they acquired a local company in 2016. Mark Shaw, CEO, wanted to know how they could become more involved in the work of the Chamber. After learning about the Chamber’s Foundation and its efforts in workforce development and financial literacy, Mark decided to increase StoredTech’s investment to the level of Community Partner, and divide the investment between the Chamber and the Foundation.

StoredTech will be the presenting sponsor of the Chamber’s new speakers series, “Ideas & Opportunities,” and is now a Bronze Sponsor of the Chamber Foundation. Are you interested in learning how your company can increase its visibility in our community while investing in our future workforce? Please contact Ann Welton at ann@wakeforestchamber.org for a conversation!
