Longwood, FL (PRWEB) November 1, 2010
Cornerstone Marketing Services, an Orlando-based business-to-business teleservices firm, announced today that it successfully completed the Minority Business Enterprise certification process with the Florida Minority Supplier Development Council (FMSDC), which is an affiliate of the National Minority Supplier Development Council (NMSDC). This certification enables Cornerstone Marketing Services to be recognized as a MBE when competing for business from corporations and public sector entities with diversity initiatives. Cornerstone also recently earned national certification as a Women’s Business Enterprise (WBE) by the National Women Business Owners Corporation (NWBOC).
“The certification process was extremely comprehensive and I am honored that we’ve been awarded our MBE certification,” said Tonya Cox Turrell, CEO and Co-Founder of Cornerstone Marketing Services. “It is very exciting news for our company. In addition to exposing us to new clients, it will help some of our existing clients achieve their goals of supporting vendors with diverse ownership.”
The primary objective of the NMSDC is to expose minority-owned businesses to the corporate buying market, provide companies with information on qualified MBE suppliers, and to increase corporate purchases from minority-owned businesses. MBE certification has the potential to increase business opportunities for Cornerstone Marketing Services.
Turrell believes that it will. “We’ve been in business for eight years and I’m grateful that we have experienced steady growth and continue to be profitable, especially in this challenging economic climate. I truly believe that the strategic business partnerships we will make in the community of certified minority suppliers and corporate sponsors will help propel Cornerstone to the next level.”
