DALLAS, TX, January 07, 2020 /Neptune100/ — Each year D CEO magazine researches, interviews and evaluates various company leaders and their impact in the North Texas region. This year, Beatriz (Betty) Manetta, CEO of Argent Associates was named one of the influential leaders as part of the Dallas 500.
The Dallas 500 features the North Texas region’s most powerful leaders in 50 different categories. These leaders make the Dallas/Fort Worth economy tick. The publication covers information about the toughest challenges, strategies for success and personal lives of the selected leaders. Manetta was featured in the July 2019 issue of D CEO recounting her journey from Buenos Aires, Argentina to the U.S., and her eventual success as a technology entrepreneur.
“I am honored to be included as an influential leader for the North Texas region,” said Manetta. “The region was so welcoming to us when we moved our corporate headquarters from Edison, New Jersey to Plano ten (10) years ago. I am excited to be able to bring value and economic growth to this region. As a Hispanic, women-owned company in the technology industry, my team and I have made this our home and work hard each day to contribute by hiring and training individuals in the tech field. In addition, we work with several organizations focused on building a stronger diverse community where all can contribute and prosper.”
In 1998, Manetta founded Argent Associates which has grown into a multi-million-dollar technology firm that provides Value Added Reselling, Supply Chain Optimization, eCommerce Procurement, Network Engineering Design, Installation and Maintenance, Quality Assurance, Integrated Emergency Communications, Mobility Connectivity and Community Social Responsibility solutions.
