In addition to his work at Banyan Hills Technologies, Latham is committed to helping accelerate innovations in the Greater Atlanta tech arena through his involvement in the Gwinnett County Chamber of Commerce and at Georgia State University. In the nonprofit sector, Steve and the team at Banyan Hills Technologies have supported the Lanier Community Garden Project, a food bank gardening project maintained by volunteers, and Pride for Parents, a program designed to provide the families the opportunity to shop during the holidays for gifts at significantly reduced costs. Banyan makes annual donations to a variety of charities for their employees’ anniversary milestones.
“I’m honored to be recognized on TAG’s IoT/Cloud Technology: Georgia Game Changers list,” said Latham. “Banyan maintains a commitment to being active in our neighboring communities, with Atlanta being our focal point. We are passionate about empowering companies to get the most out of their IoT strategies and we take great pride in being recognized for these contributions.
