Shirley Staten, President Emeritus
Shirley received her Executive MBA in General Business from ASU - W.P. Carey in 2006. She currently works as a Customer Business Specialist at Heilind Electronics, where she assists OEM customers with identifying connectors and products from other suppliers represented for manufacturing builds.
Shirley's favorite position was recruiting, hiring, and developing young sales professionals and teaching them how to qualify and grow accounts. This led to her side business as a life and business coach, which allows her to use skills developed in her corporate roles to help clients identify goals and create strategies to execute and achieve goals.
In her free time, Shirley loves watching basketball, traveling, and spending time with family and friends. She is a Big Sister with the Big Brothers/Big Sisters program, volunteers at Children's Health and JA, and whenever possible, helps make sandwiches for the homeless community. Shirley joined the Dallas Business Club in 2018 and served as President in 2022. We honor her as a President Emeritus.
