The Barbour Group Recognized Among Top 100 Regional Minority Businesses
The Barbour Group, LLC has been selected to receive the prestigious Top 100 Minority Business Enterprise Award. This award is designed to acknowledge and pay tribute to outstanding women and minority business owners in Maryland, Virginia and the District of Columbia.
The awards ceremony will take place at the Inn and Conference Center at University of Maryland University College in Adelphi, Maryland on Thursday, November 6, 2008.
“The Barbour Group represents the best of what our region’s minority business community has to offer,” said Sharon R. Pinder, founder of the Top 100 MBE Awards Ceremony. “This award is the culmination of sacrifice, dedication and hard work and will inspire future minority business entrepreneurs to strive for the same level of success.”
A panel of distinguished judges chose finalists based on entrepreneurs that demonstrated outstanding achievement in four key areas: eligibility, entrepreneurship, professionalism and community contributions. This year’s ceremony host organizations are the University of Maryland University College, Southwest Airlines, the Governor’s Office of Minority Affairs and the Maryland Department of Transportation.
“Each year, I am more impressed by the quality and quantity of the region’s successful small, minority and woman-owned business enterprises. I am privileged and grateful to be recognized among this select group of exceptional entrepreneurs,” said Karen Barbour, president, The Barbour Group, LLC.
