Janick has worked 5 years at Benchmark, a provider of high technology to original equipment manufacturer users (OEM). Janick has been elected to serve a three-year term at the Council’s quarterly board meeting held April 18. “Benchmark has been an outstanding addition to our technology community because of the high-tech, high-wage jobs they are adding to our economy and the innovation they bring,” said Steven G. Zylstra, the Council’s president, and CEO. “Jan’s experience and knowledge will help to advance our agenda, which is designed to grow Arizona’s technology industry and break down barriers that inhibit business success.”

“The Arizona Technology Council is the state’s premier organization dedicated to helping companies like Benchmark grow and prosper,” said Janick. “It is my pleasure to join this outstanding board, and I look forward to working with my peers to speak with one voice and promote policies that support our industry’s vision.”
