Executive Team

Data Genesis is a rekindling of the American Dream. Started on a folding table with no employees, no sales people and no customers, Data Genesis has grown to a respected National and soon International processing company. Today our customer base ranges from small businesses to major merchants and large government contractors.

A few of the people who made the dream become a reality work almost all of the time. We thought it would be of interest to write about what they do when they are not working.

Jay Shubel
Chairman
Chief Executive Officer

Jay is a power lifter and strength training aficionado. He enjoys hiking the mountainous regions of the beautiful Southwestern United States. Jay is a 1st degree Black Belt in American Kenpo Karate. He has a passion for IndyCar and sports car racing and, although he won’t confirm it, has reportedly been seen driving his modified Corvette, rather fast, through the rural canyons surrounding Las Vegas.

Jay’s research interests include mathematics, strength training protocols, and cutting edge technologies in personal achievement.

Sandra J. Shubel
COO Emeritus
Board Member

A Registered Nurse by profession, Sandy switched from caring for patients to caring about employees, agents and merchants. When not at work she spends as much time as possible with her two youngest grandchildren ― from biking, hiking, snow skiing, fishing, playing basketball, baseball and doing crafts to playing every card and board game imaginable.

Sandy’s personal passions include riding her bicycle, doing Pilates, drinking strong coffee, cooking and eating gourmet food and, of course, dark chocolate.

Sharon J. McNair
Chief Financial Officer

Sharon’s long career as a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) encompasses many accomplishments and prestigious awards. Noteworthy is her appointment by Nevada Governor Kenny Guinn to the Nevada State Board of CPAs in 2002, for which she served as President from 2005 to 2006 and subsequent Board member until 2008. More recently, Sharon was appointed by the Nevada Supreme Court to the Board of Directors of the Nevada Law Foundation where she currently serves as Treasurer.

Sharon’s enduring passion is serving her community. Her commitment to service is exemplified by her numerous Executive Board member positions with such high-impact organizations as the Las Vegas Ronald McDonald House, the Women’s Council of Las Vegas Chamber of Commerce, the Las Vegas Chamber of Commerce, Planned Parenthood of Southern Nevada and the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation. Currently, Sharon is the President of the Las Vegas Rotary Club and is a Board Member and Treasurer of the Project REAL (Relevant Education About the Law). Her precious “free time” is generously dedicated to her close friends and family. Sharon is best known amongst friends as the person most likely to be hosting a holiday, birthday or any-excuse-day party in her backyard.
