Excel Communications Worldwide Inc (Excel), an industry leader in telecommunications and cabling technology solutions, is delighted to announce certification as a Women’s Business Enterprise (WBE) by the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC).
“Receiving WBE certification provides a critical opportunity to strengthen existing connections, foster developing relationships, and celebrate construction industry diversity,” commented Kristen Mallonee, president of Excel. “Through Excel’s commitment to inclusive company culture – where each member has a voice and feels supported – our team has created an environment aligned with the core values of the WBENC.”
Excel is a prevalent force in the telecommunications, AV, and DAS (Distributed Antenna Systems) industries. For over twenty years, it has provided innovative solutions to their partners by recognising and responding to global business trends. As industry shifts towards diversity and equality, Excel evaluated its organisation for areas of improvement. To further support its goal of creating an inclusive workplace, Excel pursued and achieved a WBE certification.
“Becoming WBE certified was a top priority of ours to relationship-building with our customers,” said Derek Loux, VP of Excel. “If all we offered were cabling and technology solutions, we wouldn’t be thriving. Our team – the human element – that’s the key to our success.”
WBE certification allows Excel to invest in relationships with customers who recognise the importance of supplier diversity. By including women-owned businesses like Excel, corporations and government agencies demonstrate support for supplier diversity programs.
