CompTIA, the Computing Technology Industry Association, the world’s leading technology association, has named Arizona Tech Council President and CEO Steven Zylstra a recipient of the 2018 CompTIA Tech Champion award. Zylstra joins Colorado Senator Cory Gardner and Massachusetts Representative Seth Moulton in receiving this year’s honor. The CompTIA Tech Champion award is given out each year recognizing individuals who exemplify leadership in the technology sector, and who have championed policies that advance the country’s IT industry.

“Under Steve’s leadership the Arizona Tech Council has made the Grand Canyon State a top destination in the country for technology companies and cutting-edge innovation,” noted Hyman. “His work pushing for R&D tax credits, increased workforce training and substantive tax cuts are just a few of the reasons tech companies are flocking to Arizona. CompTIA has worked with Steve for nearly a decade, and we are honored to present him with the Tech Champion Award.”
