Jon Fuller Named Tech 25 Winner

August 16, 2017


In 2015, TechPoint launched the Tech 25 Awards, a prestigious selection of twenty-five individuals who are critical and exceptional performers helping to grow our community’s tech and tech-enabled companies, but who — not being the CEO or other C-suite executives — don’t get celebrated publicly as often as they deserve.

Jon Fuller, Director of Software Engineering at SEP has been named a 2017 winner.

Tech 25 Award winners represent a wide range of roles within tech companies, such as software developers, financial analysts, marketing directors and product managers.

“Being mentioned in the same breath as some of these folks is truly humbling,” said Fuller. “It’s cool to see our community and TechPoint take the time to shine the spotlight on leaders attempting to make a meaningful impact through technology. I love building software products, and SEP is my favorite place to do that.”
