Once again, Compass Auctions has been certified as a Woman Business Enterprise (WBE). This certification is awarded by the State of Tennessee (through the Governor’s Office of Diversity Business Enterprise) to businesses that are at least 51% owned and operated by one or more women.
In the business world, only about 20%-30% of viable US companies are women owned. In the auction world, that percentage is significantly less.
“It’s an incredible honor to be a WBE-certified company,” says Paige Holt, Compass Auctions President and CEO. “Our company is literally the only woman-owned auction company in the state of Tennessee. Programs like this one enable women to get a toe-hold as business leaders and entrepreneurs.”
While certification isn’t easy, it can be an incredible resource for women-owned businesses that qualify. If you want more info on these and other diversity programs in Tennessee, please visit the GoDBE website.
