Hillsborough, NJ (PRWEB) April 13, 2011
Beverly Rossi, President of Graphic Matter, Inc. was recently presented the WPEO Rising Star Award for the NY Region at the Women Presidents' Educational Organization [WPEO] Annual Awards Breakfast.
The event, held at The Plaza Hotel in New York City on March 4, 2011, recognized women business owners, corporations, and women’s business advocates. It also celebrated the thirteen years the WPEO has created access for Women’s Business Enterprises (WBEs) to private-sector opportunities. In addition, the WPEO acknowledged WPEO-certified WBEs and WPEO Corporate Sponsors. The WPEO provides full service third party certification to women entrepreneurs in the New York, Northern New Jersey, Southern Connecticut and the Washington, DC, Maryland, and Virginia areas.
The WPEO Rising Star Award recognizes a WBE that has been certified for between 1-4 years, has demonstrated past performance in doing business with corporations, government entities, and fellow WBEs, has supported other women in business, and has shown active involvement in the WPEO through volunteer service, in kind support, event sponsorship, committee participation and panelist contribution. Two winners are honored: one from the WPEO-NY region and one from the WPEO-DC region.
Beverly Rossi, President of Graphic Matter, has been an enthusiastic advocate for WBENC certification, and together with fellow WBE Maureen Borzacchiello of Creative Display Solutions proposed a pilot program to increase vendor development opportunities for WBEs and second tier opportunities with corporations. Originally certified in 2006, Graphic Matter was also the 2010 recipient of the Done Deals WBE Partnership Award.
