Jackie Mattox, founder, president, and chief executive officer for Women in Electronics, headquartered in Southern California, will keynote the Women in Electronics Reception at IPC APEX EXPO 2022 from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, January 25.
Named one of the Top 21 female influencers in 2021, Jackie started her career in the electronics industry during her college years at a small rep firm in Southern California, where she worked her way into the roles of sales and distribution manager and took a passionate interest in strategic key account management. Jackie graduated from California State University-Northridge with a Bachelor of Arts degree in communication/journalism. Jackie has always had a heart for people and especially for women’s issues, along with a dedication to personal and professional leadership development. Jackie had a vision for women rising into leadership roles in the electronics industry and founded Women in Electronics in 2017, which is now a thriving global nonprofit 501(c)3 organization.
Having a very active role in her children’s education, she also helped with the start-up of a charter school in Orange County, California. Jackie values time with her children and loved ones, the experience that travel brings, and being home in the city of beautiful Laguna Niguel, California, with her family, life-long friends, and her two dogs, Cocoa and Rubie.
We’re looking forward to hearing Jackie’s insights on how she’s able to manage a family, a business, and a thriving career.
Attendance to the Women in Electronics Reception at IPC APEX EXPO is included in all registration packages, including the exhibit hall only/event essentials package.
