January 11, 2017
BROOMALL, Pennsylvania (January 11, 2017) – Peggy Gionta, President of Partner’s Consulting, has been chosen as a 2017 winner of the Enterprising Women of the Year Award by Enterprising Women magazine. This annual tribute to the world’s top women entrepreneurs is widely considered one of the most prestigious recognition programs for women business owners. To win, nominees must demonstrate that they have fast-growth businesses, mentor or actively support other women and girls involved in entrepreneurship, and stand out as leaders in their communities. Many of the honorees also serve as leaders of the key organizations that support the growth of women’s entrepreneurship.
“The recipients of the 2017 Enterprising Women of the Year Awards represent an amazing group of women entrepreneurs from across the United States and as far away as The Netherlands, South Africa, Uganda, the United Kingdom and Canada,” said Monica Smiley, publisher and CEO of Enterprising Women. “We could not be more proud to recognize their accomplishments as CEOs of fast-growth companies, community leaders, and role models and mentors to other women and girls. We look forward to shining the spotlight on them at our 15th annual awards event in April.”
Award winners were recognized in seven categories based on annual sales revenues. Gionta was selected as a winner in the “over $5 million and up to $10 million in annual revenues” category for her leadership of Partner’s Consulting, a nationally certified woman-owned Information Technology consulting company specializing in project and product delivery for Fortune 500 and 1000 companies. Under her direction, Partner’s Consulting has been recognized for its remarkable growth by multiple publications, including Inc. magazine’s Inc. 5000, Philadelphia Business Journal and Philadelphia SmartCEO.
In addition to her role as Founder and President of Partner’s Consulting, Ms. Gionta is an envoy for the Women’s Business Enterprise Council (WBEC) where she actively engages with other women-owned businesses as a mentor. She is also a dedicated sponsor and strong advocate of organizations that are devoted to championing women and economically disadvantaged youth to excel and become leaders in STEM careers.
“It’s an incredible honor to receive this award and be recognized alongside such an accomplished group of women,” said Gionta. “Sharing this award legacy with past honorees for whom I have the deepest respect and admiration is truly humbling.”
The award will be presented to this year’s honorees at the 15th Annual Enterprising Women of the Year Awards Celebration and Conference at The Ritz-Carlton Fort Lauderdale, Florida, in early April.
