In August, SyCom Technologies mourned the passing of one of our founding partners, Paula Gulak. Paula is remembered for the indelible impact on our company and Richmond’s technology community, which included the founding of the Greater Richmond Technology Council (now RVATECH).
Each year RVATECH hosts its rvatech/Gala, the “Academy Awards” of the Richmond technology community, celebrating the many breakthroughs, advancements, and outstanding technologists who are driving our technology-based economy. This year RVATECH hosted the 25th Anniversary Awards Gala virtually with an incredible 90-minute production celebrating tech with tech like never before.
Tom Cricchi, SyCom’s CEO, and Tom Carr, SyCom’s SVP of Sales, had the privilege of providing some comments in RVATECH’s video tribute to Paula during this virtual event:
Paula’s legacy as the founder of RVATECH and as the inspiration and role model for the Women in Technology will endure forever. Many memories of Paula continue to be shared within the extended SyCom family, and they remind us of her strength and dignity, her fun and mischievous spirit, and her warm and caring heart. We will never forget this remarkable woman.
