PKF Texas director named chairman of Houston Technology Center advisory board
Gregory Price, CPA, director of consulting solutions for Pannell Kerr Forster of Texas, P.C. (PKF Texas), has been named chairman of the Houston Technology Center (HTC) advisory board.
"Price's vast experience, track record, and deep commitment to Houston and its technology business community will be invaluable to HTC's expansion as it helps Houston's transformation to a global leader in technology innovation and commercialization," said Walter Ulrich, HTC President and CEO.
As chairman, Price will steer the team of 54 senior executives actively advising and supporting HTC in its efforts to assist emerging technology companies to commercialize their products and services, raising capital and creating thousands of jobs in Houston.
"I am deeply honored and humbled to be named as the new Chairman of HTC's advisory board," said Price. "Our previous advisory board chairmen of Dallas Parker, Bob Gray and Chuck Powell did an outstanding job in leading this extremely important group of advisors to the HTC. Their impact on the advisory board and its impact on the HTC have been nothing short of remarkable."
PKF Texas' long standing support of the HTC includes joining the Service Provider Network (SPN) in 2000, as well as chairing the SPN in 2006-2007. Other PKF Texas team members have served as Technology Champions and members of the advisory board. As the founder of the FastTech 50, PKF Texas proudly recognizes the HTC as the pulsepoint of technology in Houston.
Voice of the Editor
Which isn’t completely true. I mean, occasionally I drop by when I manage to sneak out of the nonstop frat party over at Going Concern, but I’m mostly a wallflower over there. I’m happy to say that I’ve been given express permission (or explicit orders, if you like) to wander over here to AccountingWEB more often.
Why is that, you might ask? My job is to replace the irreplaceable Gail Perry as Editor-in-Chief. What does that mean? I don’t really know! I think it’ll be fun getting a feel for things, throwing in my own thoughts here and there, and listening to the discussions you’re having about the accounting profession.
