Distributor Promotional Marketing Services (PPAI 387312, D1) of Athens, Georgia, has earned its national certification as a Women’s Business Enterprise by the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC).

WBENC’s national standard of certification is a meticulous process including an in-depth review of the business and site inspection. The certification process is designed to confirm the business is at least 51-percent owned, operated and controlled by a woman or women. By including women-owned businesses among their suppliers, corporations and government agencies demonstrate their commitment to fostering diversity and the continued development of their supplier diversity programs.

“This recognition is a great honor for my team and me,” says Lori Anne Lord, owner. “We have so much to be thankful for during this exciting season of change and growth. 2019 has been a rewarding year with record-breaking sales, new employees and positions, a new office space and national recognition. I feel a great responsibility to set an example of leadership for other female entrepreneurs entering any male-dominated industry. Having this certification reinforces our commitment to provide outstanding results and unmatched customer service for our clients. We are extremely honored to work with our loyal clients who inspire us every day and help us achieve success.”

In the wake of substantial achievements and growth, Promotional Marketing Services, Inc. has also relocated recently to 1494 Prince Ave., Athens, Georgia 30606.
