Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC) grants Montclair-based public relations agency WBE certification

Violet PR is proud to announce its national certification as a Women’s Business Enterprise by the Women Presidents’ Educational Organization New York (WPEO NY).

"Becoming a certified women-owned business is a significant milestone for Violet PR. This designation ties into our firm’s ongoing efforts to back community improvement projects and partner with organizations making places better," said April Mason, President, Violet PR.

Violet PR, a New Jersey-based public relations agency specializing in economic development and commercial real estate, is proud to announce its national certification as a Women’s Business Enterprise by the Women Presidents’ Educational Organization New York (WPEO NY), a regional certifying partner of the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC).

April Mason, president and owner of the firm, founded Violet PR in 2010 to cast light on community leaders, developers and designers making a difference in the world, as well as those representing underserved destinations and demographic sectors. Mason is an economic development and real estate expert with over two decades of experience developing public relations campaigns for clients across the U.S. Her team actively strives to partner with woman and minority-owned organizations.

“Becoming a certified women-owned business is a significant milestone for Violet PR. This designation ties into our firm’s ongoing efforts to back community improvement projects and partner with organizations making places better,” Mason adds. “As a boutique firm, being nationally recognized as a WBE will certainly help open doors to new opportunities.”

WBENC’s national standard of certification, implemented by the WPEO New York, is a meticulous process including an in-depth review of the business and a site inspection. The certification process is designed to confirm that the business is at least 51 percent owned, operated and controlled by a woman or women.

Looking toward 2020, Violet PR’s client roster continues to grow, as the company is working with economic development entities throughout the country, plus prominent architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) firms, burgeoning creative services companies and regional entertainment venues.

Violet PR’s team of experts in the business-to-business (B2B) space manage media relations, social media and content development programs for clients, creating customized campaigns that create measurable return on investment (ROI) and cross-channel visibility for clients.
