PHILADELPHIA, Pennsylvania (November 10, 2017) – Last night, in recognition of their exceptional leadership, ingenuity and positive impact on the region, Partner’s Consulting was the recipient of the Greater Philadelphia Chamber of Commerce’s Excellence Award for Professional Services. Peggy Gionta, President and Founder of Partner’s Consulting, accepted the award on behalf of her company.
“Our whole team is absolutely thrilled and so thankful for having been selected as the winner of this year’s Professional Services Excellence Award. This recognition not only serves as a testament to our commitment to delivering the absolute best service in the industry with values, relationships and trust, but also to our dedication to supporting women and minorities to break into the IT space, further their careers and ultimately increase diversity in IT,” said Ms. Gionta.
“I am truly grateful for the generous support that we’ve received from the Chamber, and especially Rob Wonderling. This past August, when we partnered with Women in Cable Telecommunication’s (WICT) Philadelphia chapter and Girls Inc. to host a career exploration and leadership camp to connect girls with professional mentors in media and tech, the Chamber not only allowed us to use their facility, but Yvette Nunez from the Chamber even came down to participate. This is just one of the many ways that they’ve been so immensely supportive of my company, its growth, and our goal of helping young women learn and grow into STEM careers.”
The winners of the awards were nominated by their peers throughout the region based on their demonstrated commitment to the advancement of the business community, civic involvement and responsiveness, corporate responsibility, employee recognition and concerns regarding service issues.

About the Excellence Awards
In 1982, the Chamber created the program known today as the Excellence Awards, Honoring Regional Businesses. The awards showcase the impact and vital role that small to mid-size businesses play in the overall economic development of the Greater Philadelphia region. Award winners set themselves apart from the competition and are outstanding representatives of the diversity of our region’s business community.
Each year, businesses are recognized for their creativity, vitality, stability and relevance. Winners are nominated by their regional business peers based on their demonstrated commitment to the advancement of the business community. Equally important in selecting winners are civic involvement and responsiveness, corporate responsibility, employee recognition and concerns regarding service issues.
Over the years, the scope of the Excellence Awards has grown with the help of the Small Business Board. The Small Business Board has created new initiatives and categories, increased involvement in the nomination process, and established criteria for measuring and defining excellence.
