T.E.N. — Tech Exec Networks is a national executive networking firm that creates channels of communication between technology and security executives and builds bridges to knowledge using an interactive approach. Led by CEO Marci McCarthy, T.E.N. empowers IT and security executives to interact with peers, industry leaders and technology providers.

The company’s offerings include some of the country’s most acclaimed peer-to-peer leadership recognition and executive programs, including virtual and traditional executive round tables, road shows and private executive engagements.

In addition to meeting the needs of the information security community, T.E.N.’s programs serve the technology vendor community. The stimulating style of recognition, peer discussion and thought-provoking agendas paired with celebrations give technology vendors unparalleled access to C-level decision-makers.

The level of success of T.E.N.’s programs hinges on its ability to promote the offerings to security executives and technology solution providers within the information security community. Meeting the needs of the technology vendors depends on the ability to put the right information security executives in the right seats with pinpoint precision. The business model is reliant on providing customer service and establishing personal trust with the security executives and vendors alike.

“I worked with T.E.N. when I was nominated for an ISE Executive of the Year award,” says Mario Chiock, global chief cyber security authority for Schlumberger. “I was unfamiliar with the nomination process and constrained for time. The T.E.N. team took it upon themselves to educate me and keep the process very well-synchronized.

“The customer service provided by the T.E.N. team was superb and made the process much easier. The extra care, advice, advance notice of due dates and assistance was tremendously helpful. They made me feel extremely special while also making me look good.”
