We are proud to announce that our own Shawn Hall, the Director of Next Generation Data Center Engineering here at Kinney Group, has been selected as a member of TechPoint’s Tech 25 Class of 2018. Congratulations, Shawn!
Now in its fourth year, the Tech 25 Awards honor a prestigious selection of twenty-five individuals from Indiana’s tech companies 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 top executives—don’t get celebrated publicly as often.
A panel of independent judges, including past winners, selected this year’s class from three main role categories: tech product/R&D, tech sales & marketing, and tech professional services. Winners were chosen from a very competitive class of nominees based on criteria including professional contributions, energy and attitude, and community commitment.

“I’m humbled to be selected and honored to be in company of this year’s class of Tech 25. It’s great to be able to represent Kinney Group and my team with this award. I’m very excited to be part of the robust and growing tech community here in Indianapolis. Congrats to all the others selected as well.” – Shawn Hall
More About TechPoint’s Tech 25 Awards
In addition to being star performers at their companies, Tech 25 candidates are committed team players who build others up through mentoring, volunteering and positive example and are committed to contributing to the broader community.
Different than many awards, individuals cannot apply or nominate themselves. Tech 25 candidates must be nominated by the executives at their companies, and a company can only put forth one nominee, making for a remarkable and competitive class of candidates.
More About TechPoint’s Tech 25 Class of 2018
A total of 62 Indiana technology and tech-enabled companies nominated a team member this year. The Tech 25 Class of 2018 will be showcased and celebrated during a special luncheon at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway on Thursday, August 16, 2018. This unique event will be held in conjunction with the second annual Indy Women in Tech LPGA Championship.
“The Tech 25 Awards is a beacon, lifting up these exceptional professionals as examples of the ‘best of the best’ who rarely receive acknowledgement despite their significant contributions both in the workplace and in the community,” said Mike Langellier, president and CEO, TechPoint.
