Markitects Granted WBE Re-certification for 2015

Wayne, PA, July 31, 2015 — Markitects, Inc. was recently re-certified as a National Women’s Business Enterprise (WBE) by the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC). This certification affirms that Markitects is a woman-owned, operated, and controlled business. WBENC’s national standard of certification is a meticulous process including an in-depth review of the business and site inspection. The certification process is designed to confirm the business is at least 51% owned, operated and controlled by a woman or women. This coincides with Markitects’ celebrated twentieth year in business.

Francine Carb, Founder and CEO of Markitects, owns 100% of the business and is an award-winning member of the business community, where she is affiliated with many organizations throughout the Philadelphia region, including Entrepreneur’s Forum of Philadelphia, Mid-Atlantic Diamond Ventures, Greater Philadelphia Alliance for Capital and Technologies (PACT), and the Forum of Executive Women.
