"In my years as ROI’s president and owner, I’ve learned that female entrepreneurs need three things to succeed: risk-taking abilities, confidence and a good support system to help as owners like myself share the successes with my team and tackle the challenges that the company may face."
ELGIN, Ill. (PRWEB) April 27, 2021
Elgin, Illinois-based Rieke Office Interiors (ROI) is proud to announce that President and Owner Melissa Kehl has won a 2021 Enterprising Women of the Year Award. Presented by Enterprising Women Magazine, these prestigious awards are an annual celebration and tribute to the world’s top women entrepreneurs.
For several years, Kehl has been overseeing the multimillion dollar business which has been designing functional office environments and manufacturing custom office furniture for the past 27 years. Kehl was one of 15 women business owners recognized in the category of “over $10 million and up to $25 million in annual revenues.”
“I am truly excited to be honored with this beautiful award,” Kehl said. “In my years as ROI’s president and owner, I’ve learned that female entrepreneurs need three things to succeed: risk-taking abilities, confidence and a good support system to help as owners like myself share the successes with my team and tackle the challenges that the company may face. These awards are great examples of celebrating women’s strengths and creative processes to be business leaders in their own right.”
The magazine will recognize these honorees during the 19th Annual Enterprising Women of the Year Awards Celebration & Conference, to be held from Sunday, Nov. 14-16 at the Wyndham Grand in Clearwater Beach, Florida.
For women to be considered honorees, they need to demonstrate that they have fast-growth businesses, mentor or support other women and girls involved in entrepreneurship, and stand out as community leaders.
Kehl described how she always had passion for helping people along with her desire for success and winning. Those things help her lead her business in a positive direction.
“I like my success, but it fills me up when the people around me are also succeeding,” she said. “I enjoy it when I can help and celebrate their successes. That is what gives me energy and gets me going every day. It is one reason why I am fiercely committed to our business.”
