FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Washington, DC (January 7, 2018) – In 2018, Fairchild Consultants, LLC (DBA Global Services) was certified as a Women’s Business Enterprise (WBE) by the Women’s Enterprise Business Council (WBENC), the largest third-party Women-Owned Business certification body in the US. Then, in January 2019, our status as a Woman Owned Small Business (WOSB) was certified by the Small Business Administration (SBA).
In order to secure these certifications, Global Services had to demonstrate that our business was at least 51% owned, controlled, and operated by a woman. Our President and CEO, Courtney Fairchild, worked with WBENC representatives to confirm our status by participating in interviews, collection of company size data, and review of financial records.
With these certifications, Global Services officially joins a vast network of peers (15,000+ in WBENC alone), and may work with Large Businesses to meet the government’s small business/socioeconomic category sub-contracting goals.
“We are very pleased to join the ranks of our partners and clients in WBE and WOSB-Certified status,” said Fairchild. “And, most importantly, we will continue to encourage female entrepreneurs to seek this certification and the opportunities in government contracting that follow.”
