We’re doing our happy dance to celebrate being officially certified by the US Small Business Administration (SBA) as a Woman-Owned Small Business (WOSB). Whew—that was a lot of paperwork!
Karen Nardozza, our founder who is also the sole owner of Moxxy, serves as president and CEO.
To qualify for certification as a WOSB, Moxxy had to meet and provide evidence to the SBA on a variety of government-set standards, including being 51% owned by women who are US citizens, and directed and operated by women on a daily basis.
We also employ other women in key leadership roles:
- Molly Briseño, who has worked with Karen in various capacities since 2005, is Moxxy’s vice president responsible for operations and managing key accounts.
- Debbie Cintora, who has been with us for three years, rose quickly through the ranks from an entry-level account coordinator position she accepted upon graduating from college, to an accomplished account manager leading our largest client accounts and marketing campaigns.
“This certification is a nice milestone for Moxxy and may create additional growth opportunities,” said Karen. “But I’m proud of our entire team. Our diversity empowers our collaborative environment. Everyone at Moxxy has a voice and we expect them to use it. We encourage all Moxxers to engage fully—men and women, junior- and senior-levels, and all ages and positions.”
“Karen has developed a unique environment at Moxxy, which has definitely influenced our service delivery and strong reputation,” added Molly. “Full participation by everyone on the team is an important part of our culture, and it contributes to the amazing work quality that has fueled our growth and expansion.”
