“This nomination (Business Growth Awards) is an endorsement of some of the sharpest technological minds in the Pacific Northwest,” said Jeff McInnis, VP, ADTRAN Subscriber Solutions & Experience. “SmartRG is no ordinary technology company and VBJ’s nomination of the SmartRG team, together with ADTRAN, showcases our continued growth in the Vancouver area.”
“It has certainly been a growth journey where SmartRG went from inception on May 1, 2012, to a $32-million business to eventually be acquired by ADTRAN – the third largest Telecommunications Access Equipment provider in the U.S.,” said Mei Wu, managing director. “We’ve enjoyed all the support from the community in Clark County over the past seven years and look forward to increasing our footprint for ADTRAN in the Pacific Northwest.”
