Commonwealth Capital Certified as Women’s Business Enterprise by WBENC

Commonwealth Capital, a diverse equipment leasing company, was recertified as a Women’s Business Enterprise by the Women’s Business Enterprise Council of Pennsylvania, Delaware and South New Jersey, a regional certifying partner of the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council.

“This is a designation Commonwealth is very proud of,” said Kimberly Springsteen-Abbott, CEO and owner of Commonwealth. “Our company has always been recognized for the diversity of our ownership, leadership and workforce, which is a competitive advantage for us. We continue to take full advantage of this national certification to further promote Commonwealth to our clients so that they may demonstrate their commitment to diversity and advance their supplier diversity objectives.”

WBENC’s national standard of certification includes an in-depth review of the business and a site inspection. It is the most rigorous and sought-after certification of its kind and is designed to confirm the business is at least 51 percent owned, operated and controlled by a woman or women. By including a women-owned business among their vendors, corporations and government agencies demonstrate their commitment to fostering diversity and the continued development of their supplier diversity programs.

Founded in 1997, WBENC is the nation’s leading advocate of women-owned businesses as suppliers to U.S. corporations. In March of this year, WBENC recognized 50 Top Fortune 1000 companies for exhibiting exemplary leading supplier diversity programs.
