The Sacramento Business Journal honored Trofholz Technologies, Inc. (Trofholz) CEO, Yvonne Pire, today as a Women who Mean Business Award recipient.
Sixteen of Sacramento’s most dynamic businesswomen were recognized for their noteworthy accomplishments by the Business Journal during their annual luncheon. These awards recognize dynamic women for their leadership, entrepreneurship, perseverance, passion and commitment to their industries and communities.
Yvonne started her career in the U.S. Air Force as a Security Specialist. In this role she supported high-level security systems, managed Top-Secret/SCI personnel security programs, and completed Wing level security assessments. After the Air Force, she held roles in corporate software and training environments. This combined experience was the catalyst for her career as a government contractor in the information technology and security arena.
Yvonne’s depth of business experience, background in the U.S. Air Force, and continuing involvement in local nonprofits unmistakably caught the eye of the judges. Yvonne served in both Desert Storm and the aftermath, before starting Trofholz in 2001. She successfully grew the business, while balancing the busy schedule of her active children and holding multiple leadership roles in the community.
“Being a woman and a business owner doesn’t tell half of the story about Yvonne,” said Rocklin Area Chamber of Commerce CEO, Robin Trimble. “She’s a tremendous asset to the Chamber and the community.”
