The publication presents 100 corporate CEO profiles including their thought-provoking views on the future of our national competitiveness and need for a STEM workforce. The CEOs center their discussions on technology; innovation; skills to careers; public-private partnerships; women, girls and diversity; global competitiveness; scalability and best practice.
“It’s an honor to be featured in such a prestigious publication such as this, said MicroTech President and CEO, Tony Jimenez. “It is always a pleasure to share my knowledge and experiences I have accumulated over the years as a veteran-owned service-disabled small business owner.”

The objective of the 100 CEO Leaders in STEM publication is to salute and celebrate an active group of CEOs that have contributed to making a difference by their dedication to advancing the STEM issue throughout their careers, their industries and their companies. The selection process included mapping over 300 CEOs and thorough research was conducted to collect material in three aspects: 1) CEO’s background and career; 2) Company’s STEM position within the industry and 3) Company’s specific items and lines of action around STEM.
