Aventis Systems President & Founder, Hesam Lamei Awarded Georgia Trend 40 Under 40 Award

Georgian Professional Recognized for his Outstanding Success and Community Contributions

Atlanta, GA – Aventis Systems, Inc., a leading provider of both new and refurbished technology equipment, announced that its President and Founder, Hesam Lamei, has received a coveted 40 Under 40 Award from Georgia Trend Magazine. In its 17th year, the 40 Under 40 Award is presented to a group of 40 outstanding Georgian professionals for their exceptional success and community contributions, who are under the age of 40. The honorees represent businesses, government, politics, nonprofits, science, conservation, and education.

The 40 were chosen from a statewide pool of candidates representing the best and brightest throughout the state of Georgia. Nominations were received and final selections were made by the Georgia Trend editorial staff. Selections were made based on their successful demonstration of business success, community involvement, leadership ability and influence, and how they are actively working to make Georgia a better place to live and work.

"I am honored to be recognized as one of the Georgia Trend 40 Under 40 recipients and I am privileged to be among such an outstanding group of professionals who encompass exceptional work within their industry and the Georgia community," said Hesam Lamei, President and Founder of Aventis Systems, Inc. "As a company, we will continue to dedicate ourselves to the business growth and community involvement that helped us obtain this award."

While attending Southern Polytechnic State University, Lamei sold computer memory chips that upgraded laptops, desktop computers, and servers. But in 2008, at a friend’s suggestion, he expanded his product line into selling servers. It was the start of the worst recession since 1929, but Lamei believed he could help small businesses by providing affordable computer hardware solutions that not only meet their needs, but also fit within budget. Today, Aventis Systems helps small businesses who need comprehensive IT solutions, by providing high quality, new and refurbished hardware, licensed software, support services. Among other things, Lamei was recognized for outstanding growth in his business and entrepreneurial drive through what has been a difficult economy. "Small businesses wanted to save, so they upgraded rather than making new purchases," said Lamei. "We were able to provide them the ability to do so and address essential needs that existed in the computer hardware industry."

Lamei was named as one of Ernst & Young’s top entrepreneurs in 2012, and his company Aventis Systems also recently received the distinct honor of being named to Inc. Magazine's seventh annual Inc. 500|5000 for the second year in a row. An exclusive ranking of the nation's fastest-growing private companies, the list represents a comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy — America's independent entrepreneurs. Only 5,000 out of approximately seven million privately-held U.S. businesses were named to the 2013 list. Lamei is also actively engaged in the Technology Association of Georgia and the Cobb Chamber of Commerce.
