Tampa, FL – Oakland is proud to announce that President and CEO Cedric Nash spoke at the Information Technology Senior Management Forum (ITSMF) 4th Quarter Symposium today. ITSMF is a national organization dedicated exclusively to fostering executive-level technology talent among African Americans.
Nash was a featured panelist during a session titled “Failing Forward as an Entrepreneur”. During the session, Nash shared lessons learned from his more than 20 years of experience as an entrepreneur to encourage mid- to senior-level technology executives in their pursuit of new enterprise.
In February 2016, ITSMF recognized Nash with a President’s Award for his outstanding contributions in the Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) field, his commitment to advancing others, and his accomplishments as a successful entrepreneur in the IT industry.
“I am honored to have had the opportunity to share my experiences and knowledge with aspiring entrepreneurs and accomplished leaders from across our nation,” said Nash.
Nash will host a networking event for the Symposium participants at his Tampa residence Saturday evening.
