At the request of former Maine Gov. Angus King, iCST president Ashok Nalamalapu represented Maine in an international technology trade mission. Many of his leadership articles have appeared in major newspapers and media outlets. Nalamalapu has made numerous technology presentations to the SBA National Conference, Dale Carnegie International, Maine International Trade Center, the Governor’s Small Business Conference, and numerous civic organizations and Chambers of Commerce.
Community involvement is in our DNA. iCST supports more than 60 non-profit organizations with cash donations. President Ashok Nalamalapu has served on the boards of TechMaine and United Way of Greater Portland, championed the Maine laptop initiative for 7th and 8th graders, and generously donates time and resources to a variety of worthwhile causes.
From its humble beginnings in Nalamalapu’s attic in 1996, iCST has shown steady, consistent growth. Despite the dramatic ups and downs of the global and Maine economies over the past decade, our growth has averaged 5%. Annual revenues now exceed $4+ million.
