HBA RTP Chapter Announces Nannette Stangle-Castor as its 2012 Leadership Excellence And Dedication Award Winner
The Healthcare Businesswomen’s Association’s (HBA) Research Triangle Park (RTP) chapter awarded Nannette C. Stangle-Castor, PhD the 2012 LEAD award, in recognition of her outstanding leadership and the important role she plays in the success of the HBA RTP chapter. The LEAD (Leadership Excellence And Dedication) award recognizes one outstanding chapter member who has demonstrated excellence in their sustained contributions at a regional level, positively impacted the chapter and its ongoing success, exemplified leadership excellence overall and demonstrated dedication to the HBA mission of furthering the advancement of women in healthcare worldwide.
A member of the HBA since 2008, Stangle-Castor’s many leadership roles include serving as the RTP chapter secretary where she created process, templates and most importantly accountability tools for the board. In addition, she is leading the chapter’s efforts to hold a charitable event benefiting the Greater Carolinas chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Society in conjunction with the HBA RTP year-end meeting and celebration.
In addition to her role on the executive committee of the board, Stangle-Castor is also a very active member of the volunteer engagement committee where she served as the key design architect of the roles and responsibilities template that has been adopted by the board and shared with other HBA chapters in support of succession planning.
“Nannette is an outstanding contributor to the HBA and has taken on multiple leadership roles within both the HBA and the broader community that have truly made an impact, not only in the RTP chapter but throughout the organization more broadly. She is tirelessly energetic and unselfish with her time, despite her many commitments that include CEO of her own company, parent and supportive member of her large family,” stated Patricia Ensor, chair of the volunteer engagement committee.
Dr. Stangle-Castor is the founder and president of InnoVector Tech Inc, a consulting firm that specializes in guiding innovation through technology transfer, partnerships and business process development.
In addition to her leadership role at the HBA, Nannette was honored with Triangle Business Journal’s 40 Under 40 Leadership Award in 2010. In support of inspiring emerging leaders, she serves as an advisory board member for Alfred University’s Beth Robinson Judson Leadership Center. She also has supported Fast Forward, a National MS Society organization focusing on expediting drugs to the clinic for MS.
As steering committee chair for the annual Triangle Women Against MS Leadership Luncheon, she raises money to fund MS Society programs.
The 2012 LEAD award will be presented at the HBA Leadership Institute in November and Dr. Stangle-Castor will be recognized at the HBA RTP program in December.
