Culture: that’s what attracted Adam and Dawn Boitnott to Virginia Tech women’s basketball. Ultimately, it’s what led their company, Hylaine, to move forward with a generous, philanthropic contribution to the team’s locker room renovation project in the Hahn Hurst Basketball Practice Facility. “Coach Brooks understands relationships, not only with his players, but with alumni and other coaches at the university,” said Adam Boitnott, a 1998 Virginia Tech graduate and CEO of Hylaine. “We talk about that a lot at Hylaine. Relationships with our employees and the community. So, we like to give back to the community.” Boitnott founded Hylaine, a software consulting firm, in 2017 in Charlotte, North Carolina, with the help of friend and Tech alum T.J. Eberle (‘89). In the span of the short, yet prosperous history of the company, Hylaine has opened additional offices in Raleigh, Atlanta and Dallas to coincide with the demand of their project-based technology approach to finding IT solutions. Even before the success of Hylaine, the Boitnott’s fostered a special relationship with Virginia Tech women’s basketball. Dawn and Adam’s oldest daughter, Hylton, began attending basketball camps inBlacksburg even before Kenny Brooks was hired in 2016.
