Prestigious Award Recognizes Women Business Owners
ATLANTA, GA – April 02, 2015 – Enterprising Women Magazine has honored Tammy Cohen, President and Founder of InfoMart, with an Enterprising Women of the Year Award.
The 13th annual award recognizes top women entrepreneurs from around the world. The publication chooses its honorees based on rapid business growth, community leadership, and service to women entrepreneurship. Ms. Cohen is one of only twenty captains of women-led business being honored in the publication’s “Over $10 Million and up to $25 Million in Annual Revenues” category.
“I am grateful to EW and proud to be considered an enterprising woman worthy of recognition amid so many incredible nominees,” says Ms. Cohen. “InfoMart birthed a new industry with no funding or assets in a time when background screening was unrecognized. We grew organically, and still to this day we operate debt-free. I hope that by sharing my story, InfoMart’s accomplishments, and our “Best Place to Work” practices, we will contribute to the advancement of female entrepreneurs and women-owned businesses in the future.”
Ms. Cohen adds this prestigious award to a growing collection of state and national honors recognizing her business and leadership contributions. She recently received the Gold Eclipse Award for Outstanding Company Culture from the National Women Business Owners Corporation (NWBOC), and has previously won a Phenomenal Women Award (The Siegel Institute) and the first ever Women of Achievement Award (YWCA of the USA).
“It’s such an honor to be recognized by an organization that reaches so many amazing women day in and day out. Their stories and successes are an inspiration, and I hope that any woman with a dream of entrepreneurship can learn from our collective experiences. Most importantly, ’Don’t reach for the stars; grab them. Just ask any enterprising woman if she‘s never taken a chance; I’ll bet you won’t find a one.”
Now in its 25th year of operation, InfoMart is a leading background screening company, recognized as one of the largest in the industry, providing criminal searches, driving records, credit reporting, employment and education verification, drug testing, and reference checks, among other services, for companies worldwide.
