Chip manufacturer CEO honoured for economic contribution
MISTER Bee CEO Mary Anne Ketelsen has been honored as one of West Virginia’s 2020 “Wonder Women” by WV Living, a lifestyle and travel magazine in the Mountain State, for her ongoing commitment to the area’s economic development and social programs.
The annual event recognises influential women driving change through hard work and "roll-up-your-sleeves Mountain State spirit". Mary Anne, who leads the state’s sole chip manufacturer, joins the ranks of 50 inspiring women who are blazing trails in their industries and communities.
She brought 30 years of plant experience with her when she purchased Mister Bee and has carried out every job in the plant to set it up for success.
Ketelsen’s Wonder Woman qualities extend outside the hive as well. She is a passionate member of the United Service Organizations (USO)-Metropolitan of Washington-Baltimore, and supports a range of non-profits and charities, including the Sheltered Workshop, Girls Clubs of America, and Girls Night Out with the YWCA.
