Atlanta, GA – August 26, 2014 – Aventis Systems, Inc., a leading provider of both new and refurbished technology equipment, announced today that its President and Founder, Hesam Lamei, has been named as one of the "Most Admired CEOs" by Atlanta Business Chronicle. Lamei was recognized for his outstanding leadership in the technology industry. In its inaugural year, the Most Admired CEO event was created by Atlanta Business Chronicle, an Atlanta-based business news source, highlighting the most notably talented CEOs leading the state’s nonprofit, private, and public organizations. With over 1100 entries, this year's selections were based on the CEO’s demonstration of strong leadership, vision, competitiveness, innovation, commitment to financial performance and excellence, and community service involvement.

Lamei received the award during a gala held on August 22, 2014 at the Cobb Energy Centre.
