About Our CEO

Beata Stylianos

“I appreciate variety and actively seek new ways to accomplish a problem. When co-workers or clients bring me challenges, they know I’ll help them find new opportunities.”

Growing up in Chicago in a Polish family of first generation immigrants, including entrepreneurs, medical doctors and nurses, Beata’s family contributed to supporting the Solidarity movement in Poland through their business enterprise. This taught Beata at an early age, the power of business to support great social change, and to this day she continues this entrepreneurial legacy.

Beata has a proven track record in Government Relations and Business Management after earning her BA in International Politics and Business from Boston University. It was there she learned the value of teamwork while rowing on the Charles River. While attending the University of Grenoble, she honed her legislative and policy skills in Washington DC during the Bill Clinton Administration, focusing on diplomacy and legislature.

Mission Critical Technologies, Inc.

Yorgos was instrumental in teaching Beata the value of technology and how it helps drives business. Beata’s passion for healthcare innovation was further fueled by a personal diagnosis of Hashimoto disease.

About MCT
