About TTEC
The Triangle Technology Executives Council (TTEC) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to the economic development of technology companies in the Research Triangle region of North Carolina through the education and collaboration among leaders in the management community.  The council resources are primarily volunteers comprised of executive technology leadership in this region.  Other resources are provided by TTEC sponsors who share the commitment for economic development in the area. We also partner with local universities and the Council for Entrepreneurial Development (CED) to extend our shared expertise to aspiring students and technology ventures.



Our mission is to facilitate the success of our member executives through education and collaboration.   We will also contribute to the continued growth of business in the community by utilizing the collective IT executive base to support higher education and entrepreneurs.



The Triangle Technology Executives Council is the premier forum for networking and collaboration between technology executives in the Research Triangle region of North Carolina.  We provide the ongoing open and candid deliberation on key technology issues facing our executive community and promote the social networking to foster the development of relationships essential to each member’s success.  We are considered an essential tool for the development and success of technology executives in the region.


The pillars of TTEC are:
  1. Executive Education & Collaboration
  2. Higher Education Support
  3. Council for Entrepreneurial Development (CED)

Executive Education & Collaboration

The primary value available to TTEC members is the various means for collaboration among the constituents. Companies requiring expert advice for key decisions and development objectives can often utilize the collective expertise of the council as an alternative to expensive consulting engagements. It is our experience that challenges facing our member companies are usually shared problems and that collaboration with members sharing goals, or have experience overcoming particular challenges, can be the route to the most cost effective resolution.

TTEC education & collaboration is conducted in the following forums:

  1. Monthly briefings on topics chosen and prioritized by the members
  2. Participation in TTEC discussions and blogs associated with the constituents priority issues
  3. Ad-hoc conference calls / meetings initiated by members with shared challenges
  4. Coordinated technology issue research resulting in templates and/or white papers accessible to all TTEC members
  5. Consulting engagements on common issues funded by a coalition of TTEC member

Higher Education Support

The Triangle Technology Executives Council offers mentoring and career development support to Computer Science students at local universities.  Volunteer executives from TTEC provide the resources and executive level experience to provide meaningful support to aspiring technology resources. This encompasses the following:

  1. Reviewing resumes and provided constructive feedback
  2. Conducting mock interviews, either in person or via telephone
  3. Conversations with students regarding career goals

Students participating in this effort gain a valuable perspective of the executives they will be facing when it comes time to enter the workforce. In the interim, they have the opportunity to gain internships from the relationships built through the TTEC mentoring process.

Council for Entrepreneurial Development (CED)

TTEC shares the dedication of CED in the support of regional economic development.  Our volunteer technology executive resources provide mentoring for entrepreneurs in technology focused start-up companies and enable the immediate social networking among other technology leaders in the region. We believe the partnerships and shared experiences of the TTEC membership can be an important aspect in the success of a technology start-up.

In addition to mentoring, TTEC provides resources to CED’s FastTrac training program providing valuable education to entrepreneurs. TTEC members volunteer as instructors/mentors in the FastTrac process and offer expert perspectives on technologies associated with new ventures.
