The Illinois Department of Central Management Services recently certified Simantel as a Female Business Enterprise (FBE).

Simantel underwent a rigorous evaluation process to achieve this important certification under the state’s Business Enterprise Program for Minorities, Females, and Persons with Disabilities. The new FBE status demonstrates our agency’s commitment to diversity.

“Many of our clients have supplier diversity programs, and Simantel’s Female Business Enterprise certification allows them an added advantage for meeting internal sourcing goals,” said Susie Ketterer, principal. “It gives our current clients one more reason to work with us, and it will help us pursue new opportunities in such fields as government and education.”

In 2010, Simantel achieved certification as a Women’s Business Enterprise by the Washington, D.C.-based Women’s Business Enterprise National Council. Our state FBE certification is valid through 2018.
