Celeste Ford, Stellar Solutions Board Chair and Founder, was featured as a 2021 Trailblazer in Enterprising Women magazine. A winner of the Enterprising Women of the Year Award in 2020, Celeste was cited in the article for her vision of “satisfying customers’ critical needs while realizing our dream jobs.” 

An advocate of women leaders, she has mentored women in STEM across the nation. As a company, Stellar Solutions is exemplary for its hiring and promotion of women: three of its six Vice Presidents are women.

Celeste recalled being the only woman in a control center more than 25 years ago, “Although it was a thrilling challenge, I knew that my voice stood out in the crowd on the console and any mistake would not only impact the mission but my future career and that of the women that would follow me. It focused me on being the best I could be.”
