Ms. Yee, along with 24 other women in the category, will be recognized at the third annual Women of Influence Awards on May 19, at Cedar Crest College in Allentown, PA. Winners were chosen for this category because of their contributions to their companies, industries and communities.
Susan Yee has worked in influential positions within the Lehigh Valley for over 25 years. She served as the Chief Operating Office of Twin County Cable Television and orchestrated a $100 million merger with RCN, a publicly held cable television company. Proceeds of that merger were used to fund companies in the Internet industry. In 1995 Ms. Yee launched an Internet firm – Regional Network Communications, which built and operated 13 community web sites in partnership with the Media News Group, owner of the Oakland Tribune, and other newspapers across the country. Active Data was founded in 1999 as a spin-off of Regional Network Communications.
Ms. Yee’s time is spent on several boards within the area including Lehigh Valley Health Network Board of Trustees, Lehigh Valley Muhlenberg Hospital Board, Lehigh Valley Cedar Crest Hospital Board, Lehigh Valley Hazelton Hospital Board, Lehigh University College of Education Board of Advisors, Northampton County Community College Foundation Board, and the YWCA Bethlehem Board as an honorary director.
“Time is my enemy as there never seems to be enough of it. Making best use of it by being a productive and useful contributor back to where I live and work makes life meaningful,” said Susan Yee, Active Data CEO. “I truly appreciate being recognized as a Woman of Influence and hope to be a good influence for as long as I can.”
She previously served on C-SPAN’s Executive Committee and Board of Directors, Lehigh University Board of Trustees, Lafayette Ambassador Bank Board of Directors, the Lehigh Valley Economic and Development Corporation Board of Directors, The PA Cable and Telecommunications Executive Committee and Board of Directors, and supports many other community organizations.
