Debra A. Pierson, owner/CEO of Pierson Computing Connection Inc. (PCCi), an IT services and solutions firm, has been awarded the inaugural Business Woman of the Year Award by the Business Women’s Forum, central Pennsylvania’s largest one-day professional development conference for women.
The Greater Carlisle Area Chamber of Commerce, Harrisburg Regional Chamber & CREDC, and the West Shore Chamber of Commerce presented Pierson with the Business Woman of the Year Award at the 18th annual Business Women’s Forum on April 26 at the Radisson Hotel in Camp Hill, PA.
“Created to recognize a woman who has led, influenced, and inspired the community through her achievements, commitment, and wonderful personality, the Business Woman of the Year Award is one way we can highlight talent statewide,” says Jennifer Delaye, president of The JDK Group. “Deb is a brain gain for us—a transplant from Boston. Her strong demonstration of integrity, strength of character, and innovative leadership; her ability to capture opportunities and overcome challenges; and her involvement in community and society defined this award.”
“There is no personal private divide for Deb,” says David Black, president of the Harrisburg Regional Chamber of Commerce/CREDC. “Her principles of hard work, integrity, fairness, forgiveness, and The Golden Rule guide her in complex business transactions the same as they guide her in Alzheimer’s board discussions.”
Pierson leads by example; she is a founder and current president of Business Women’s Fellowship of Central Pennsylvania and mentors women through the Harrisburg Regional Chamber & CREDC Women’s Mentorship program.
Committed to making a difference locally, Pierson serves on the Alzheimer’s Association of Greater PA Board of Directors, Business Women’s Forum Logistics Committee, and the Messiah College President’s Leadership Council. PCCi is also the founding corporate guild member of Dress for Success South Central PA.
Pierson and the PCCi team have received several awards for excellence including Pennsylvania Best 50 Women in Business, the Central Penn Business Journal 40 Under 40 Award, YWCA Tribute to Women of Excellence, the Central Penn Business Journal 25 Women of Influence, Harrisburg Regional Chamber & CREDC Small Business of the Year Award, and is one of Diversity.com’s 2012 Top 100 Woman-Owned Businesses in Pennsylvania.
