BOONTON, NJ (July 27, 2015) – Green Room Communications, a specialty agency focused on healthcare public relations and media strategy, has been certified by the State of New Jersey as a Women Business Enterprise (WBE) effective July 9, 2015. As part of the certification, Green Room is listed in the state’s Selective Assistance Vendor Information (NJSAVI) database composed of small, minority- and women-owned businesses. The certification can increase visibility of the company among corporate decision makers seeking to diversify their pool of business partners and contractors.
“Becoming WBE certified is an important part of Green Room’s growth strategy,” said Karen Carolonza, principal of Green Room Communications. “Many corporations and state agencies have programs that encourage working with women-owned businesses. When companies choose to do business with a WBE certified company, they demonstrate their commitment to supporting diversity in the marketplace.”
Founded in 2008 by Karen Carolonza and Deborah Sittig, Green Room submitted a state application and documentation that proves the company meets the state’s requirement that a WBE be at least 51% owned and controlled by women. The certification is valid for three years with the option to renew.
“WBE certification further differentiates Green Room in a competitive marketplace,” said Deborah Sittig, principal of Green Room Communications. “We created Green Room in response to growing need among clients for a more flexible business model that taps into the right resources and skill sets. Since 2008, Green Room has experienced extraordinary growth and we expect WBE certification will continue our success.”
