SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwire - February 25, 2011) - Just hours ago, HasOffers (www.hasoffers.com) was named "Service Provider of the Year" by the Washington Technology Industry Association (WTIA), one of the largest statewide associations of technology companies, IT departments and technology professionals in North America. HasOffers received the top honor at the organization's 16th annual Industry Achievement Awards after being named a category finalist last month. The awards recognize Washington State companies, organizations and individuals who best demonstrate technology and service innovation and excellence; winners were selected by a panel of local technology leaders.

"We're obviously thrilled to receive this award, especially because it is our first award from our home state," said Lucas Brown, 26 year old CEO and co-founder who runs HasOffers with his twin brother Lee. "We are so proud of our brilliant team who is transforming the online advertising industry with next generation affiliate tracking software. You can build the best technology, but without the right people there is no way we could be the best service provider."

The Industry Achievement Awards celebrate the brightest companies, individuals, and students in Washington that demonstrate outstanding innovation and excellence in technology. 2011 marks the 16th year that the awards program has been in place. In the last 16 years, a number of noteworthy Washington companies such as Microsoft, RealNetworks, F5 Networks and Concur have also been recognized by the WTIA.
