Cierant Obtains National Woman-Owned Business Enterprise Certification

WBENC Certification Solidifies Cierant’s Commitment to the Excellence of Women


DANBURY, Conn. July 5, 2017 — Cierant Corporation, a business specialized in marketing communications software and services, is proud to announce national certification as a Women’s Business Enterprise. Certification was granted by the Women Presidents’ Educational Organization of New York, a regional certifying partner of the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC).

The Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC), founded in 1997, is the largest third-party certifier of businesses owned, controlled and operated by women in the United States. As the nation’s leading advocate of women-owned businesses, the WBENC is dedicated to advancing the success of certified women’s business enterprises, forging enduring partnerships between its members and America’s corporations.

With the WBENC serving as the most highly regarded and nationally accepted form of WBE certification, the process of certification is a meticulous one, including confirming the business is at least 51% owned, operated and controlled by a woman or women via in-depth reviews of the business and on-site inspections. Cierant Corporation exceeds these standards by being not only owned and controlled by a woman, but comprised of a 67% female staff and led by a predominantly female management team. The organization is not just woman-owned—it is women-powered.

“I see this certification as formal recognition of the significant influence women have had and continue to make in both the growth of our organization and that of the clients we serve,” said Lisa Cioban, owner and president of Cierant. “We hope to serve as a beacon to other organizations of the tremendous business value women offer, particularly in highly technical fields historically dominated by males.”

Cierant Corporation is committed to being a diverse supplier to its clients, as well as building its own network of diverse outsourcing partners. To potential clients, Cierant offers a suite of marketing execution services, including world-class print production, cross-media delivery, personalized composition and workflow automation. To potential partners, the company offers access to a diversified portfolio of clients, a multicultural workforce of top talent and a suite of cutting-edge project management tools.
