Securitec Screening Awarded WPEO (Woman-Owned) Certification

Woman Presidents’ Educational Organization Rules That Securitec Meets Stringent Qualification Criteria

Roanoke, VA – July 27, 2016 – Securitec Screening Solutions, an industry-leading wholesale background research intelligence firm, is pleased to announce that it has met the necessary criteria to attain its Women's Business Enterprise (WBE) designation from the Women Presidents' Educational Organization (WPEO-DC)


The Women Presidents’ Educational Organization (WPEO) comprises two of the 14 regional partner organizations of the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC)—the nation’s leading advocate for women-owned businesses. WPEO was founded in 1998 by Dr. Marsha Firestone, a pioneer in opening doors for women-owned businesses.

“We’re absolutely thrilled to have met the criteria necessary in order to become a part of this amazing organization,” said Jessica James, President & CEO of Securitec Screening.  “WPEO’s mission of furthering the success of women-owned businesses is something that we can certainly relate to and support whole-heartedly.  This certification also provides both current and would-be clients with the necessary assurance for filling out governmental RFP documentation that requires their partnering vendor(s) to be “minority owned.”


“To be involved with an organization like the WPEO, that works tirelessly to promote, educate and connect woman-owned ventures is nothing short of fantastic.  We look forward to seeing how we can ‘plug into’ their network and aid them in their mission of helping other women-owned business ventures,” added James.
