Proforma Earns “Woman-Owned Business” Certification
Cleveland-based Proforma is now officially recognized as a certified woman-owned business by the National Women Business Owners Corporation (NWBOC). This certification validates Proforma’s corporate structure and gives buyers confidence they are working with a woman-owned company.
“I’m thrilled that Proforma will now be officially recognized as a woman-owned business,” said Vera Muzzillo, CEO of Proforma. “This certification proudly illustrates the roles women hold at Proforma and recognizes our woman member owners. This program will enable us to develop relationships with larger companies and create opportunities for future partnerships with them amid public and private companies.”
By obtaining this certification, Proforma’s woman-owned franchises are eligible to receive the woman-owned certification from the NWBOC. The certification will benefit Proforma in the marketplace, assist in identifying new business opportunities and provide an advantage in competing for new business with companies and government contract opportunities that require a woman-owned certification status.
“NWBOC seeks to increase the ability of women business owners to compete for corporate and government contracts,” said Janet Harris-Lange, president of NWBOC. NWBOC is a national not-for-profit corporation, created to recognize the benefits of contracting with women suppliers. NWBOC seeks to provide more corporations with the opportunity to better their procurement practices and to give women suppliers the opportunity to compete in the marketplace.
