Under the leadership of its founder and president, Molly Bakewell Chamberlin, the Hamburg, New York, USA-based Embassy Global, LLC, a worldwide strategic technical marketing, PR and business development consultancy serving the high-tech components manufacturing and engineering sectors, today announced that the company has successfully earned its Women’s Business Enterprise (WBE) certification from the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC).
Valid for one full year, and with opportunity for subsequent annual renewals, WBENC certification is widely considered a gold standard among U.S. women-owned businesses. More than 1000 U.S. corporations, representing some of America’s most prestigious brands, as well as many U.S. states, cities, and other entities, formally recognise WBENC certification. In order to achieve its successful certification, Embassy Global underwent a meticulous, voluntary 90-day evaluation process, as facilitated by WBENC regional certifying partner, the Women’s Business Enterprise Council Metro NY. The process, which included extensive reviews of business history, brands, operating documents, officer qualifications, financials, and present and future growth plans, concluded with a successful verification that Embassy Global was at least 51% female owned, operated, and controlled. Beyond the satisfactory document reviews, and as a necessary final step, Embassy Global president, Ms. Bakewell Chamberlin, successfully completed an in-depth WBENC Committee screening interview and virtual site visit.
Since 2008, Embassy Global has successfully helped more than 200 high-tech component brands to derive consistent annual sales growth from its promotional and export activities. It has done so, most notably, via the applications of its own recognised methods, strategies, and in-depth industry experience. Today, the firm remains one of the first and only known 100% woman-led, all-virtual strategic technical marketing, PR, and business development firms of its kind in the world. As a result, Embassy Global has been consistently recognised among industry peers for its consistent achievements of successful Client outcomes, and particularly within the Electronic Components; Sensors, Testing and Instrumentation; Photonics and Optoelectronics; Industrial Automation; Motion Control; High-Tech Manufacturing; and Science & Technology Commercialisation sectors.
Notes Ms. Bakewell Chamberlin, “Embassy Global is grateful to WBENC Metro NY for giving us the opportunity to become formally WBENC certified. Since our founding, we have actually always been a 100% woman-owned, led and operated small business. We have also always been based in Western New York and have supported a truly global Client base. As a newly WBENC certified business, Embassy Global looks forward to continuing to do our absolute best work for our valued Clients, just as we have always done, while also reaffirming our support for vital industry supply chain diversity and inclusion initiatives.”
