The Partner

Stephanie Sievers

This "outgoing" and "eccentric" entrepreneur from Shreveport, LA is the CEO of ANECA Federal Credit Union. Armed with an upbeat, outsized personality, Sievers believes her commitment to sponsoring startups falls neatly in line with Lemonis' mission.

"If you think that you're awesome and … you just put good vibes out there and you feel good about yourself, maybe that'll translate into the world," Sievers says of her life philosophy.

Sievers is nothing if not "unconventional." Not only does she have three Master's Degrees, she also became a CEO at the age of 28. She considers Marcus Lemonis to be her unofficial mentor and hopes to make that dream a reality.
