2024 Shining Star Ball honoree

Steve Heslop (1)

Steve Heslop Senior Vice President, TDSYNNEX Corporation

Clearbrook is thrilled to honor Steve Heslop at the 2024 Shining Star Ball for his support of Clearbrook’s mission. Steve has been involved with Clearbrook since 2019. He is the founder and chair of the Illinois Chapter of the Share the Magic Foundation. Their mission is to enrich lives, embrace potential and provide therapeutic recreation and leisure activities to infants, children, teens and adults with intellectual and profound developmental disabilities.

Steve launched the Illinois chapter in 2022 and has hosted two successful golf outings to raise funds in support of their mission. His strong connections in the IT industry have been very generous in supporting the event. The foundation has contributed nearly $100,000 to Clearbrook in just two years.

In addition to all of this, Steve invests his time serving as a volunteer with the Fox Valley Special Recreation Association. The bond between Steve and the athletes in this program is remarkable. The mutual respect and admiration they have for one another is palpable, and it is a testament to Steve's dedication to the special needs community.

Steve Heslop serves as Senior Vice President, PCW. He is a founder of PCW dating back to 1991 and joined SYNNEX in 2007 as Vice President. Prior to SYNNEX, he served as General Manager, PCW. He previously held executive roles at Comark Inc. and Insight Enterprises.
