Beatriz (Betty) Manetta Honored As A "2019 Women's Business Enterprise Star" By The Women's Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC)
The WBE Star Award is the nation's premier award for women's excellence in business leadership.
Manetta was selected by Women's Business Council – Southwest, one of 14 WBENC regional affiliate Councils, for her business acumen, inspiration to other women and successful active role at the helm of two multi-million dollar companies. She will be honored along with 13 other Stars during the upcoming 2019 WBENC Summit & Salute gathering of more than 1,800 entrepreneurs and business leaders taking place March 11-13, 2019, in Houston, Texas.
"I am proud to receive this prestigious recognition by WBENC," said Manetta. "I am thrilled to be a part of world-class organizations like WBENC and WBCS that understand women are an important economic driver in this country, and I will continue to advocate on behalf of women businesses worldwide."
Manetta owns and operates two certified award-winning women-owned companies – Argent Associates and Asociar.
