FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif. Critical Mass for Business is proud to recognize one of their members, Shirley Balarezo, President of Tone Software who has been selected by OC Metro Magazine as one of the 20 Women to Watch in Orange County, CA.

“Shirley demonstrates great focus and the ability to get at the heart of a business issue,” stated Critical Mass for Business Co-Owner Ric Franzi. “Each month in our CEO peer groups Shirley brings her desire to learn and views each meeting as an opportunity to share and grow her skills.”

As Co-Owner Doug Gfeller, Master Certified Coach added, “Shirley has the qualities of an outstanding leader. She is a detail oriented leader who has a deep concern for her team.”

Shirley started as an intern at Tone Software; Balarezo worked her way up the ladder and after a dozen years, shattered the glass ceiling to land the president’s job in a male-dominated industry. In the two years since, she’s guided Tone through a successful transition to become a global firm.
