Greater Baltimore Technology Council


November 11, 2001|By Sloane Brown

At other events, when folks mingle before dinner sipping drinks and nibbling hors d'oeuvres, they call it the cocktail hour. But this pre-dinner conglomeration of 1,030 people at the Baltimore Convention Center was no mere cocktail hour. This was the opportunity to network, big-time. After all, this was the Greater Baltimore Technology Council's "TechNite 2001," the 12th annual humongous get-together of Baltimore's technology community. Folks from Internet companies chatted with each other, and those from firms who use their services.

They congratulated the evening's honoree, Frank Adams, and watched actor John Astin scoot by preparing for his role as the evening's master of ceremonies.

Among those in the throng: Doug Schmidt, Greater Baltimore Technology Council board chair; Barbara Dreyer, Warren Mullins, Ted Peohler and Steve Walker, GBTC board members; Penny Lewandowski, GBTC executive director; Robert Deutsch, RWD Technologies chair / CEO; Dave Jones, Ernst & Young partner; Tom Brandt, Telecommunication Systems Inc. chief financial officer; Gay Legg, Baltimore Development Corp. marking director; Greg Barger, Mercantile-Safe Deposit & Trust Co. senior vice president; Stephen Heimann, Battalle vice president; Andrew Meyer, Anne Arundel Community College vice president; Deb Wahler, The Eager Street Group partner; Archie Horton, Computer Applications Specialists account executive; Newt Fowler, Venable partner; Stuart Frankel, Grotech Capital Group partner; Joy McPeters, Marinalife president / CEO; Ed Meehan, Legg Mason managing director; George Reynolds, Miles & Stockbridge principal; Anita Balachandra, TEDCO federal labs program manager; Mike Rosenfeld, WebConnection managing partner; Wil Sirota, Piper Marbury partner; Joe Natoli, Natoli Design CEO; and Paul Wolman, P.W. Feats Inc. president / CEO.

TechNite brought in some $400,000 for GBTC.
