Vistacom Inc. of Allentown, a provider of audiovisual, communications and control room solutions, said that it has achieved national certification as a Women’s Business Enterprise (WBE) by the Women’s Business Enterprise Center – East, a regional certifying partner of the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC).
“After meeting the WBENC’s rigorous criteria, I’m beyond thrilled that Vistacom is now formally recognized as a Women-Owned Business Enterprise, and I appreciate the opportunity to highlight the importance of diversity, especially within leadership,” said Angela Nolan, CEO of Vistacom Inc.
The WBENC is the largest third-party certifier of businesses owned and operated by women in the United States. The standard of certification is a meticulous process including an in-depth review of the business and site inspection. The certification process is designed to confirm the business is at least 51% owned, operated, and controlled by a woman or women.
“We’re excited to work with clients and partners who can not only benefit from our certification, but also grow business—together,” said Nolan. “We know that our customers are looking for—and in many cases, requiring—much more than a provider of technology solutions.”
She said she believes that corporations and government agencies of all sizes are embracing a significant commitment to developing supplier diversity.
And now, “As a certified women-owned business, Vistacom is proud to add diversity to the supply chain of our clients and business partners,” said Jim Ferlino, president of Vistacom Inc. “We look forward to helping companies demonstrate their dedication to fostering diversity in all aspects of business, and most importantly, co-participating in creating a far more representative world—particularly in the technology industry.”
