NMTC is pleased to introduce our new Membership Manager, Mary Tieman. Mary moved to Albuquerque from Sierra Vista, Arizona in the fall of 2018 after living in southern Arizona for 14 years. Mary has a true passion for economic development, mentoring entrepreneurs, technology, education and supporting local business. In November 2014 she became the Director of the Sierra Vista Chamber of Commerce, after serving on the Chamber’s Executive Board for two years. As an active community leader, Mary served on the Arizona Workforce Development Board of Directors, Arizona Association of Economic Development, Western Regional Chamber Executives and was appointed to lead the City of Sierra Vista Tourism Commission from 2012 to 2018. She was extremely honored to manage the Sierra Vista Leadership Program for four years. Prior to leading the Chamber, Mary was a part of the executive team of Cochise Private Industry Council, which oversees the Arizona Workforce Development programs and the Center for Academic Success School.

In March 2019 Mary was elected as President to lead the new American Business Woman’s Association, ABWA Phenomenal Woman Chapter of Albuquerque. Continually focusing on ways to give back to the community, Mary joined the Sierra Vista West Rotary Club in 2012 and received her first Paul Harris in 2015. After relocating to Albuquerque last fall, one of the first things she did was attend a Rotary meeting. Mary has been a proud member of the Del Norte Rotary since November and is currently serving on the Membership Committee and Club Services Committee. She was extremely honored to be selected as the Board Secretary for 2019. Her diverse career, education and experience has provided her the opportunity to hold numerous leadership roles, and this is a brief overview of the numerous organizations she has supported.

Mary and her husband Allen have two beautiful daughters and a lovely granddaughter who live on the east coast. In her spare time, Mary enjoys traveling, sightseeing, history, cooking, music, and sharing great food and wine with friends.

Mary is a great addition to our team and has jumped right into her role without skipping a beat. The NMTC staff and board of directors are thrilled to have her and welcome our members to help give her a warm welcome.
