Title: President, My Personal Valet

Details: Plano-based My Personal Valet is a lifestyle-management firm that works with both individuals and corporations, offering the use of personal assistants to perform time-consuming tasks and errands.

Why you need to know her: Because McIntyre can give you your Saturdays back.

Her team of personal assistants is on hand to do everything from grocery shopping and paying bills, to planning events and vacations—even dreaded holiday shopping. Basically, if it’s legal they’ll do it—or find someone who can.

With a client roster including Dallas CEO Gail Warrior-Lawrence of The Warrior Group and PGA Golfer Notah Begay III, McIntyre hopes to broaden MPV’s corporate involvement to include all employees, not just top execs.  

Offering concierge plans as a part of benefits packages ranging from $8,000 to $45,000 annually, McIntyre says MPV’s services are a cost-effective investment yielding increased productivity and higher rates of employee retention, not to mention a much-needed competitive edge.
