Helen A. Dietz Named an Influential Businesswoman in Silicon Valley

The Silicon Valley Business Journal has recognized Helen A. Dietz, a director in wealth management and principal at Aspiriant, among the top 100 Silicon Valley Women of Influence for 2018.

This is the second time in a year that the Business Journal has honored Helen. In December, it named her one of 51 executives who made a mark in 2017. For the Women of Influence award, Helen was selected from nearly 300 nominations of women leaders in industries such as finance, nonprofits, startups and aviation.

Helen joined Aspiriant last year as part of the merger with Stanford Investment Group in Mountain View, Calif., which she led as president and chief executive officer for 12 years. With more than 25 years of experience advising individuals and families, she has a deep understanding of the challenges, opportunities and choices facing clients in Silicon Valley and beyond.

In her spare time, Helen is active with several community organizations that educate and empower young people to be successful leaders including the Notre Dame High School Board of Directors, the Daraja Academy in Kenya, the Financial Planning Association of San Francisco, the Idea Village in New Orleans and The Creative Coalition.

Look for Helen’s profile in the June 1 issue of the Silicon Valley Business Journal. An awards ceremony is planned for May 31 in downtown San Jose, Calif.
