SHEEX, Inc. has announced its national certification as a Women’s Business Enterprise by the Women's Business Enterprise Council PA-DE-sNJ, a regional certifying partner of the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC). SHEEX is co-founded and owned by Susan Walvius, former head coach of University of South Carolina women’s basketball team, and Michelle Brooke-Marciniak, former WNBA player and National Champion at the University of Tennessee.
“Acknowledgement from the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council truly means the world to Michelle and me,” said SHEEX Co-Founder and CEO, Susan Walvius. “When we created the performance bedding category and founded SHEEX almost a decade ago, our goal was to reinforce just how vital a restful night’s sleep is to a person’s overall performance. SHEEX continues to spur innovation in the category and we are thrilled to be a part of the WBENC community of passionate, women-owned businesses.”
WBENC’s national standard of certification implemented by the Women's Business Enterprise Council PA-DE-sNJ is a meticulous process including an in-depth review of the business and site inspection. The certification process is designed to confirm the business is at least 51% owned, operated and controlled by a woman or women. By including women-owned businesses among their suppliers, corporations and government agencies demonstrate their commitment to fostering diversity and the continued development of their supplier diversity programs.
