At the ATP Awards Gala on October 16th at the Cobb Galleria, ATP recognized and honored top Georgia executives for their outstanding leadership and innovation in the development, deployment, delivery, and use of communications technologies. ATP recognizes Leadership and Innovation across three distinct categories: Public Service, Enterprise, and Technology Service Provider. The ATP of the Year is the premier award presented to one industry executive that represents the “Best All Around” contribution to the industry.

This year was the 11th annual ATP Gala where more than 500 of Georgia’s most influential executives in communications and technology gathered to honor 28 nominee finalists for their impact in 2014 under the theme of “New Connections.”

Jeff Leddy, Chief Executive Officer of Verizon Telematics, Inc., a provider of leading edge mobile solutions, received the 2014 ATP of the Year award. Leddy, a Georgia Tech graduate, led Hughes Telematics through two important transactions, a business merger with Polaris Acquisition Corp. followed by Verizon’s acquisition of the company in 2012. Leddy said he is humbled to receive this honor.
