FAIRLAWN — Virtual Hold Technology (VHT) recently hosted a reception and tour for government and business leaders at its new 24,000-square-foot headquarters at 3875 Embassy Parkway. Visitors included JobsOhio President Mark Kvamme, who heads up Ohio’s business development efforts, and other regional business and education leaders, according to company officials.

“Ohio’s reputation as a leader in the technology sector is growing on both a national and international scale,” Kvamme said. “What they’re doing here at VHT is a great example of the talent and innovation we need more of in our state.”

VHT CEO Wes Hayden said Ohio is a great place to locate a technology business and that all of Ohio benefits from information technology advances because they provide other industries with competitive advantages that keep the United States at the vanguard of the world economy.
