“When I learned that less than 4% of women-owned businesses ever break the $1M mark, empowering women to achieve professional goals became one of my personal passions,” said Cheryl Eisen, Founder and President of Interior Marketing Group.
NEW YORK (PRWEB) November 14, 2018
Interior Marketing Group (IMG), the largest luxury real estate design and marketing firm in the United States, today announced that the company was named a finalist in the “Fastest Growing Company of the Year” and Women-Run Workplace of the Year” categories of the 15th Annual Stevie ® Awards for Women in Business. In addition, Founder and President, Cheryl Eisen was named a finalist in the “Female Entrepreneur of the Year” category. Both Eisen and Interior Marketing Group will be named a Gold, Silver, or Bronze Stevie Award winner in their respective categories.
Produced by the creators of the prestigious American Business Awards® and International Business Awards®, The Stevie Awards for Women in Business are widely considered to be the world’s premier business awards honoring women entrepreneurs, executives, employees and the organizations they run. More than 1,500 entries were submitted this year for consideration in more than 90 categories and finalists were determined by the average scores of more than 200 business professionals around the world.
Winners will be announced at a gala event taking place at the Sheraton New York Times Square Hotel on November 16, 2018. The event will be complemented by a new, one-day educational and networking event called the Women|Future Conference, also taking place at the hotel. For its inaugural year, the Conference tapped Eisen to share her entrepreneurship journey during its Case Study sessions.
“When I learned that less than 4% of women-owned businesses ever break the $1M mark, empowering women to achieve professional goals became one of my personal passions,” said Cheryl Eisen, Founder and President of Interior Marketing Group. “I’m proud to share my journey with other inspiring women and honored to be recognized for IMG’s achievements.”
Over its 11 years in business, IMG has grown exponentially jumping from 50 to 80 employees in the past year alone. The company is completely self-funded with 50% year-over-year growth on average. Perhaps most remarkable, is that 75% of IMG’s employees are women with 76% of senior-level management comprised of women as well. In addition to employee growth, IMG has grown physically and geographically, expanding its warehouse to meet the growing need for furniture services, custom artwork, and home products. The company now offers its design services in South Florida, Chicago, and Los Angeles. Lastly IMG has developed its business offerings to include marketing, branded events, public relations, photography and videography in light of a slowing luxury real estate market.
Ahead of the gala, Eisen will present Interior Marketing Group’s Case Study at The Women | Future Conference at 11:15 am and again at 12:30 pm.
