WBENC’s national standard of certification is a rigorous process that has included an in-depth review of the business as well as a site inspection. The certification process is designed to confirm that the business is at least 51% owned, operated and controlled by a woman or women.
Kenco became a woman-owned business when controlling interest in the company was acquired by chairwoman and CEO Jane Kennedy Greene in 2011. She provides strategic direction to the organization and leads the Kenco Board of Directors. “I am delighted that Kenco has been certified as a woman-owned business enterprise,” says Greene, who purchased controlling interest in Kenco from her father, Jim Kennedy, Jr. “This allows us to better serve our clients by helping them meet their supplier diversity initiatives.”
“Kenco has been a true partner to Cummins for over 16 years,” says Gordon Fykes, Director, Diversity Procurement at Cummins Inc. “This certification supports Cummins in achieving our supplier diversity goals and exemplifies how Kenco continues to find new ways to drive uncommon value for our company.”
By including women-owned businesses among their vendors, corporations and government agencies demonstrate their commitment to fostering diversity and the continued development of their supplier/vendor diversity programs.
