Angela Llamas-Butler

Angela Llamas-Butler started her entrepreneurial journey as an independent consultant more than a decade ago, but even then she realized her business wasn’t likely to remain a one-person show forever.

“I think I knew back in 1989, when I first registered Delta System Designs as a company, that it was an inevitable evolution,” Llamas-Butler told SBN Magazine in March 1999.

That evolution has blossomed into a business that posted $1.2 in revenue in 2001 and employs 20 people at its Zelienople headquarters.

But Llamas-Butler’s business achievements aren’t the only reason she’s a Pacesetter. She’s been active as a founding member of the Pittsburgh chapter of Women In Technology International, an organization that seeks to encourage girls and young women interested in careers in technology, and has offered internships for information technology students at her company.

This year, Delta System Designs hosted “Mingle ‘n’ Moot,” a forum for business owners to network and discuss issues critical to the growth of their businesses.
