Mary Grace Jacot (BBA 2000) has been named the 2018 First Hawaiian Bank and Guam Business Magazine Businesswoman of the Year. Grace is president and CEO of S.E.T. - Pacific, Inc., an energy systems contractor based in Tamuning, Guam. Grace accepted her award at the Businesswoman of the Year gala in April and was featured on the cover of the May issue of Guam Business Magazine.
Grace's success in the energy industry began when she decided to pursue her life-long passion for building and creating. She and her husband Ty purchased S.E.T. - Pacific, Inc. in 2010, and shortly thereafter Grace took on the role of president and sole owner of the company. Under her leadership, S.E.T. - Pacific, Inc. has become a major force in creating a more efficient and integrated electrical system for Guam and the Western Pacific region.
“I always wanted to challenge myself by not being satisfied with the status quo," stated Grace in a Guam Business Magazine article. "I wanted to prove to myself that women in construction can succeed in such a male-dominated industry.”
