•• The McGowan Group Recertified as a Chicago WBE (Women-Owned Business Enterprise)

July 16, 2014

After the normal exhaustive, laborious and detailed application process, The McGowan Group is once again certified as a WBE (Women-Owned Business Enterprise) for the City of Chicago through 2019.  Since we typically don’t contract directly with the City (though we do have experience working with other governmental agencies), you might ask why we jump through such hoops.

The short answer?  For our clients.

You see, many of our clients DO contract with the city, county or other governmental agencies that require a certain percentage of their contract fulfilled either directly with WBE or MBE (Minority Business Enterprises) or indirectly, using subcontractors.  And our clients, who do work with police departments, public health agencies and construction — they appreciate having a partner they can trust who has the Lucky Strike Extra of being a certified WBE.  Which incidentally, can be used in a reciprocal manner with a number of other municipalities and government agencies.

Interested in learning more about working with The McGowan Group as a City of Chicago WBE for Public Relations?  Just give us a call.
