WBENC CERTIFIES ARISTEO CONSTRUCTION AS A WOMEN’S BUSINESS ENTERPRISE (WBE)
Date: July 30, 2018
Aristeo Construction, one of the top five general contractors in the state of Michigan, is proud to announce certification as a Women’s Business Enterprise (WBE). With this certification, Aristeo adds the distinction of becoming one of the state’s largest women-owned businesses to its long-standing reputation as a successful general contractor.
This certification comes soon after the family-owned company announced a transition to a new generation of management, a change the company had been working toward for multiple years. The company’s management team, including President Michelle Aristeo Barton and Chief Strategy Officer Anne Aristeo Martinelli, is excited about the new certification, but recognizes the importance of continuing to deliver an exceptional customer experience.
“Earning our WBE certification is an exciting opportunity,” stated Barton. “One thing that’s important to us, however, is remaining true to Aristeo’s long standing core values. This business was founded on exceeding our customers’ expectations, supporting diverse businesses, and remaining dedicated to safety, quality, and integrity. This certification will help us further our support of the diverse business community, but we will also remain focused on continuing our legacy as a top general contractor.”
Aristeo was certified by the Great Lakes Women’s Business Council (GLWBC), a regional partner organization of the Women’s Enterprise National Council (WBENC), utilizing WBENC’s national standard of certification. The process is meticulous and includes an in-depth review of the business to confirm it is at least 51% owned, operated, and controlled by women.
“The Great Lakes Women’s Business Council is proud to count Aristeo Construction Company as one of the 16,000 certified women business enterprises across the United States,” stated Michelle Richards, President of the GLWBC. “Aristeo has an amazing history of success and we are proud to watch them soar even higher.”
