Betty Manetta - Resized for Web & Communications


Beatriz (Betty) Manetta, Argent Associates and Asociar LLC President and CEO

Beatriz Manetta emigrated from Argentina to Elizabeth, New Jersey, when she was a young girl. Education is key for entrepreneurs, thus she pursued an education as a competitive advantage. She has a Bachelor of Science in Marketing and Accounting from Rutgers University and holds a Master of International Studies from Seton Hall University, where she received the Beta Gama Sigma Award for contributing significantly to the vitality and strength of the economy, combining business achievement with service to humanity.

She worked in corporate America for twenty years.  The knowledge, skills, training and assignments in human resources, sales, technical support, quality management, and focus on both national and international were great tools for an entrepreneur.   In addition, key personal networks and relationships had been woven and were a critical element in helping to create Argent Associates Inc. and Asociar LLC.

Argent Associates was launched in 1998 and Asociar in 2012 both under the helm of Ms. Manetta as President and CEO.   Both Argent Associates and Asociar have built a reputation by having and maintaining an impeccable reputation for quality and work ethics as well as working towards exceeding customer expectations in all they do.  This is a critical element in being able to grow and sustain a business.

Manetta’s success is interdependent to the success of the communities. Social responsibility is taken seriously to ensure that education and economic prosperity are still part of the American Dream.  She believes it is important to support and serve the community; to be an advocate for minority, women and small businesses.

She currently serves on numerous boards.  These include:  United States Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, TIA Board, Tech Titan Board, DFW Minority Business Council MBEIC Chair, Seton Hall University Board of Regents, QuEST Forum Executive Contributor, Greater Dallas Hispanic Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors, Women’s Business Council Southwest Board of Directors and Fairleigh Dickinson University Supply Chain Management Advisory Board.

She is an active participant with the National Minority Supplier Diversity Council, Women’s Business Enterprise National Council, and the Women's President Organization. She served on the President's Export Council (PEC), which advised President G.W. Bush on international trade matters and its impact on small, women and minority owned businesses.

Manetta has been awarded numerous awards from local, state, federal, corporate and nonprofit organizations for her leadership and commitment to community.
