KING OF PRUSSIA, Pa., Aug. 21, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- ExecuPOWER, a full-service, women-owned engineering firm that provides premium design and consulting services to the power industry, announced today that it has received national certification through the Women's Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC).
"We are thrilled to be officially certified as a woman-owned business by WBENC, particularly because WBENC is known for its world-class standard of certification throughout the country," said Andrea Turley, co-founder and COO of ExecuPOWER. "This certification will open new avenues of revenue and growth for ExecuPOWER and will enable us to create new and diverse partnerships in the power industry," said Andrea.
"Receiving national certification from WBENC validates ExecuPOWER as a diverse service provider. As a women-owned business, we recognize that employing the best and most knowledgeable professionals in the industry while being inclusive and diverse is pivotal to providing our clients innovative solutions," said Maria Larson, co-founder and CEO of ExecuPOWER.
WBENC's national standard of certification confirms that a business is at least 51-percent owned, operated, and controlled by a woman or women. It is the most rigorous and sought-after certification of its kind.
Maria Larson and Andrea Turley founded ExecuPOWER after identifying a need in the industry for quality technical services provided by an experienced women-owned business. Changes taking place in the utility industry, such as the aging workforce, increased outsourcing, and greater infrastructure spending, created an opportunity for them to combine their talent to form a firm whose mission is to deliver premium design and consulting services. ExecuPOWER is dedicated to five key areas of service in the power industry: transmission engineering, distribution engineering, substation engineering, project management, and construction management. ExecuPOWER's goal is to leverage the best expertise in the industry to build solid client relationships while offering high-quality services in a safe, efficient, and timely manner.
