Nex-Tech Wireless Agent Manager Named Business Woman of the Year


Hays, Kansas February 2015  -  Dorothy Stieben, Agent Manager for Nex-Tech Wireless, was named the 2015 Hays Area Chamber of Commerce Business Woman of the Year at the organization’s annual banquet on February 19, 2015.


The award, sponsored by Girl Scouts of Kansas Heartland, is awarded in recognition for accomplishments within the business community.  The recipient must have strong business accomplishments, history of community service and Chamber of Commerce participation, and assist others in reaching their full leadership potential.


Stieben joined Nex-Tech Wireless prior to the launch of the company in October 2005.  Her current position with the company is Agent Manager, providing support to over 25 agent locations. She is a member of the local Soroptomist Chapter, serves as a minister in her church and Pastoral Council, served on the board for the Hays Area Chamber of Commerce, and is a graduate of the Leadership Hays program.


Anyone who has worked with Dorothy, whether through Nex-Tech Wireless or an organization she supports, knows the “can-do-attitude” she possesses.  She has given countless hours to various causes and recently completed a mission trip to Guatemala where she assisted in building a home for a family in need.


Dorothy exhibits enthusiasm and excitement in everything she does,” stated Jon Lightle, CEO and President for Nex-Tech Wireless.  “Giving back to the communities that we serve is at the heart of Nex-Tech Wireless and Dorothy is a prime example of this in her personal and professional endeavors.”
