Dean Iacovetti, Director of Recruiting for Apprenda, has grown Apprenda's employee base from just over 20 employees to 80 in under two years, with plans to reach 100 in 6 months. Troy's downtown was a key factor for Apprenda choosing their Troy location in the Hedley Building over competitive locations like Saratoga Springs, Albany, Malta, and Clifton Park. Iacovetti will be the keynote speaker of this event designed to showcase why Troy is an asset when trying to recruit and keep top talent. Our downtown is an attraction for employees. Come meet representatives from downtown businesses and organizations and leave with material highlighting all of the great things to do here in Troy. Light refreshments will be served.
