Houston, TX (PRWEB) November 10, 2010
Sue Burnett, President of Burnett Staffing Specialists, has been named as a recipient of the Inspiring Texas Women award from the Women’s Business Initiative of Sterling Bank.
Selected by a state-wide panel of 13 Sterling bankers, Sue was recognized for her professional success and generous, compassionate spirit. Active within her industry and community, Sue mentors women business owners and women seeking to enrich their career paths. Her financial contribution to Goodwill Industries provided the funding to build a donation center in Kingwood, Texas. Her donation of $24,000 initiated a fund for her 33-year employee whose house was damaged in a fire. Her amazing business acumen and close personal contact with her staff have resulted in the creation of the most highly tenured staffing service in Texas. 2010 marks Sue’s 40th anniversary in the staffing industry.
The other three women business leaders honored in Houston were Veronica Baxter-Lamb, Transportation Program Coordinator for the Houston-Galveston Area Council; Beth Garza, owner of Garza Interiors; and Brenda Love, President of Love Advertising.
The Inspiring Texas Women award celebrates the 10th anniversary of Sterling’s Women’s Business Initiative, which provides resources specifically designed for women-owned business owners and female executives to create added value to their relationship with Sterling Bank.
The four Houston awardees are among 10 women who will be recognized with the award over the next two months in the metropolitan areas of Houston, Dallas and San Antonio. Forty-four women were nominated for the Houston awards.
