Regional leader Erin Peterson named to annual list of top professionals in Connecticut
ADNET Technologies, a managed IT services, cloud, and cybersecurity provider with offices in Rocky Hill, Connecticut and Albany, New York, announced that Rocky Hill General Manager, Erin Peterson, has been named to the 40 Under 40 list for 2023 by the Hartford Business Journal.
In Peterson’s eight years with ADNET, she has helped transform ADNET’s Engagement Team through continued learning and growth. Peterson excels at mentoring her team. Her role in rethinking ADNET’s collaborative work environments has set an example for hybrid workspace evolution for ADNET and its clients, demonstrating technology use and leadership, innovation, and collaboration in everything she does.
Peterson was nominated by ADNET’s Chief Executive Officer, Christopher J. Luise. “It has been an honor to witness Erin’s meteoric rise as a professional over the last few years. She has supported and led incredible rapid growth of ADNET’s CT location and team, said Luise. “I’m truly grateful for her leadership and that ADNET has been part of her journey.”
In addition to her work with ADNET, Peterson worked closely with the Connecticut River Valley Chamber to launch a women’s networking group, called “WAVES,” in 2022. The purpose of the group is to allow a space for women leading local businesses to network, support each other, and advance their careers. This mission is something close to Peterson’s heart, as an IT leader, mother, and wife. “Bringing businesswomen together in our community is very important to me. Supporting and understanding working women’s challenges is critical to our success,” said Peterson.
“Erin is passionate about promoting and leading women in the industry,” said ADNET President, Lynette Maffei. “IT is commonly known as a male dominated industry, and Erin has always taken the time to mentor and lead by example for women in the technology field. Her commitment to supporting other women and helping them succeed is incredible. We love to see this kind of leadership, at ADNET, within our local business community and more broadly in our industry.”
ADNET Technologies congratulates Erin Peterson and the other honorees on being named to this prestigious list. Honorees will be celebrated at an awards ceremony hosted by the Hartford Business Journal on September 28th.
