The New Chair

Award-winning businesswoman Marie Fowler, President & Chief Executive Officer of American Technologies, has been elevated to Chairman of the Board of Directors, as announced by her company this weekend.

"I am humbled by this appointment," Fowler said. "It allows me to oversee our expansion and re-branding.
We have so many new projects and opportunities on the table. I can't wait to get going!"


American Technologies, a media technology company that has produced thousands of projects for many companies around the world, was Atlanta Tribune—The Magazine's 2010 Business of the Year. Its focus and service areas include full service interactive graphics, multimedia, software development, and on-line marketing.


American Technologies' clients include many companies with Southwest Atlanta based offices,
including J Entertainment ATL and the West End Medical Center. Its growing list of clients also includes the Atlanta Business League, the Economic Empowerment Initiative, Patchwork Recording Studios,
Atlanta Technical College, the Dallas Austin Foundation and Prentice Properties. Marie Fowler will remain President & Chief Executive Officer in the interim, while leading the Company's search for her successor.


"We have a search committee comprised of several members of our executive team, as well as two attorneys whom we trust, Brian Poe and Michelle Simpson. I am the Chairman of that committee. We have identified several outstanding candidates, including one internal candidate."


There is already some speculation that the company's long-time Vice President of Development Daniel Fowler or Chief Operating Officer Cori Fowler will assume the reins of President & CEO. "That is a possibility. Daniel has been able to run special projects on his own, and clearly is capable.


Cori is a star in the making. She has been building computers since the age of seven! But our committee is looking at candidates inside and outside of our current infrastructure." Once selected, the new President & CEO will report directly to Marie Fowler as Chairman. "I will lend my experience and give wise advice to my successor. But I want to also give him or her space to develop and execute a strategic growth plan that will take American Technologies to the next level."
