On May 19th, MBB Affiliates, LLC, a business specializing in, property and facility management, received national certification as a Women’s Business Enterprise (WBE) by the Women’s President Organization, a regional certifying partner of the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC).

“We are proud to be a privately held woman and minority owned business, and it is an honor to join the ranks of other WBENC certified organizations. We believe that stronger women businesses will drive a stronger economy,” said Ashley T. Atwater, Principal of MBB, Affiliates, LLC.

The Women’s Business Enterprise National Council is the nation’s leader in women’s business development and the nation’s largest third party certifier of businesses owned and operated by women in the United States. WBENC is a resource for the more than 700 U.S. companies and government agencies that rely on WBENC’s certification as an integral part of their supplier diversity programs.

WBENC’s national standard of certification implemented by the Women’s President Organization 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.

By including women-owned businesses among their vendors, corporations, and government agencies demonstrate their commitment to fostering diversity and the continued development of their supplier/vendor diversity programs.
