We are proud to announce that Freed Maxick & Battaglia won the “Social Media Award” at infoTech Niagara’s 11th Annual Buffalo Niagara Emerging Technology Awards, held March 23rd at the Buffalo Convention Center. I accepted the award on behalf of the Firm – and had to give an acceptance speech! It was a bit nerve wracking to be up there in front of the “who’s who” of Buffalo’s IT community, but I was so excited to have been recognized for our hard work and am excited to continue our innovation online.

Freed was recognized for innovative usage of social media, most notably for the outdoor digital “Facebook” Billboard campaign over the last year.  Ron Soluri, Sr. one of our directors, was also in attendance and saw, first-hand, the impact that technology and social media is making on the business community. Freed went up against The Superior Group, Social Media Club of Buffalo, You and Who and the Buffalo Niagara Association of Realtors to take home this first ever award for best use of social media! The annual event recognizes the best and brightest individuals and organizations in the WNY Tech Community. A panel of independent judges voted on well over 100 nominations received from the public to arrive at a list of finalists for the prestigious awards. Congrats to all of the other nominees!
