Meet Patel, the Executive Director for Software Engineering in Payments at NCR, is the epitome of the person that business, political, and economic development leaders want to live and work in Atlanta. A Computer Science graduate of Georgia Tech, he is responsible for engineering NCR's payments gateway. Just the sort of highly educated person needed to help build the future of Georgia.
"I was very fortunate to establish a career at NCR," he says, "the opportunities here are enormous."
Born Gujarat, India, Meet and his family moved to Atlanta when he was eight years old. "I didn't know English, so that was the first hurdle," he says, "but I had it down pretty well within a year. Adjusting to the culture of the US took a little longer."
