Albany, NY – May 28, 2019​ – The Center for Economic Growth (CEG)’s Tech Awards selection committee has chosen Auto/Mate Dealership Systems as the recipient of the 2019 Economic Winner Award. The CEG’s Annual Tech Awards celebrate and honor the most innovative and inspiring companies in New York’s Capital Region, as well as individuals whose pioneering and entrepreneurial successes better the community by strengthening its workforce and creating new jobs and opportunities.

The Economic Winner award honors well-established companies that have exhibited substantial and sustained growth in sales, profitability and employee count. Additionally, these companies are known for supporting the Capital Region’s technology ecosystem.

“The secret to our incredible rate of growth has been to build and nurture a workplace culture that our employees love, so that they are passionate about developing the best software and offering the best customer support to our clients,” said Mike Esposito, president and CEO of Auto/Mate. “We also make sure to manage our growth so that we’re large enough to serve, but small enough to care.”

Each year the CEG recognizes a handful of technology companies in New York’s Capital Region. Additional categories in the CEG Tech Awards include Lift-Off, Start-Up Star, Technology Innovation, Judges’ Choice, Technology Trailblazer, Manufacturing Innovator and the Jeffrey A. Lawrence Lifetime Contributor award.

Auto/Mate will receive its award at CEG’s 23rd Annual Technology Awards ceremony to be held Thursday, June 27, 4:30 pm at Rivers Casino in Schenectady, NY.
