SAN ANTONIO, August 27, 2019 – The San Antonio Business Journal released the 2019 list of the city’s Largest San Antonio Women-Owned Business and CNF Technologies made rank.
Roxanne Ramirez joined CNF in 2008 after she retired from her career in service as a public-school educator. Her humble start with CNF began at the front desk answering phones. “I started as the receptionist-I had so much to learn,” Roxanne chuckled. From there she quickly moved into the financial sector of the business then ambitiously worked her way to the top. Roxanne currently serves as CNF’s Chief Executive Officer and in 2017 San Antonio Business Journal recognized her as one of the city’s top CEOs.
Under the direction of Roxanne Ramirez, CNF continues to not only flourish but proves to be a leader in cybersecurity. Local accolades achieved include San Antonio Business Journal Fastest Growing Private Companies and SABJ Largest Local Software Developer. Recently, CNF was also ranked nationally on the prestigious Inc. 5000-America’s Fastest Growing Private Companies list. Roxanne is currently leading CNF’s substantial business expansion to Port San Antonio’s first specialized cyber-capable Project Tech, a research and development facility.
Although business is busier than ever, Roxanne always makes time to nurture her care projects. In September, CNF will partner with San Antonio Food Bank for it’s annual Food & Fund Drive. Last year’s drive was a great success providing over 3,300 meals through the virtual food bank and filling several red SA Food Bank barrels with non-perishable foods. Roxanne has even bigger goals for this year’s drive. Another focus of her giving heart is her women-empowering goals.
“Being a Hispanic woman in a predominantly male industry gives CNF a different perspective from our competitors,” said Roxanne Ramirez. “One of my passion projects is to expose and integrate young women into the STEM field. There are so many opportunities to learn and participate from Cyber Patriots to our company internships. From now until the end of my time I will do whatever I can to not only provide young women with opportunities in engineering and cyber security, but also mentor them into the future leaders of this field.”
