GreenWood Inc., an integrated maintenance, construction and workforce solutions provider, announces their certification as a women-owned business by the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC).

“The WBENC certification further enables us to expand our project opportunity footprint to work with additional companies within our markets,” says Laura Lipscomb, CEO. “The future is bright and we look forward to increasing our family of clients both regionally and within the markets where we have demonstrated expertise.”

WBENC’s national standard of certification is a meticulous process including an in-depth review of the business. The world-class certification is accepted by more than 1,000 corporations representing America’s most prestigious brands, in addition to many states, cities and other entities. WBENC is also an approved Third Party Certifier for the United States Small Business Administration (SBA) Women-Owned Small Business (WOSB) Federal Contracting Program.

This certification for GreenWood comes after a recently implemented succession plan named Lipscomb as CEO. She is the daughter of company founder, John Wood, and her brother Brad Wood serves as GreenWood’s president.
