Embassy Global Earns Women's Business Enterprise National Council Certification
Valid for one full year, and with opportunity for subsequent annual renewals, WBENC certification is considered a gold standard among U.S. women-owned businesses. More than 1000 U.S. corporations, representing some of America's most prestigious brands, as well as many U.S. states, cities, and other entities, formally recognize WBENC certification. In order to achieve successful certification, Embassy Global underwent a meticulous, voluntary 90-day evaluation process, as facilitated by WBENC regional certifying partner, Women's Business Enterprise Council Metro NY. The process, which included extensive reviews of business history, brands, operating documents, officer qualifications, financials, and present and future growth plans, concluded with a successful verification that Embassy Global was at least 51% female owned, operated, and controlled. Beyond these documentation reviews, Embassy Global president Ms. Bakewell Chamberlin also successfully completed an in-depth WBENC Committee screening interview and virtual site visit.
Since 2008, Embassy Global has successfully helped more than 200 high-tech component brands to derive consistent annual sales growth from its promotional and export activities. It has done so, most notably, via the applications of its own recognized methods, strategies, and in-depth industry experience. Today, the firm remains one of the first and only known 100% woman-led, all-virtual strategic technical marketing, PR, and business development firms of its kind in the world. As a result, Embassy Global has been consistently recognized among industry peers for its consistent achievements of successful Client outcomes, particularly within the Electronic Components; Sensors, Testing and Instrumentation;
Notes Ms. Bakewell Chamberlin, "Embassy Global is grateful to WBENC Metro NY for this opportunity to become formally WBENC certified. Since our founding, we have always been a 100% woman-owned, led and operated small business. We have also always been based in Western New York and have supported a truly global Client base. As a now-WBENC certified business, Embassy Global looks forward to doing our very best work for our valued Clients, as we have always done, while reaffirming our support for industry supply chain diversity and inclusion initiatives."
