Retriever Waste Management Named as one of the Top Women-Owned Businesses in the United States

For Immediate Release:

December 1, 2004 - Media, PA - In recognition of the economic power of multicultural businesses, DiversityBusiness.com, the nation’s leading multicultural B2B online portal, recently named Retriever Waste Management as one of the top Women-Owned Businesses in the United States.

The Div500 is the 5th annual listing of the Nation’s top 500 Women-Owned Businesses. Ranging in revenue size from $12 million to over $1 billion, the companies listed on the Div500 represent the nation’s top multicultural earners and challenge the notion that a diversity-owned business is small or insignificant.

“Diversity businesses are a growing force in the U.S. economy,” said Kenton Clarke, CEO of Computer Consulting Associates International, the company that built DiversityBusiness.com. “It’s no longer only about the Fortune 5000. This is a whole business segment that provides jobs and valuable products and services, and generates wealth for their communities. These are the new leaders of American business.”

The Div500 is a classification that represents the top 500 diversity-owned (women, Blacks, Hispanics, Asians, Native Indian and other minority groups) businesses in the U.S., in sectors such as technology, manufacturing, food service and professional services. Large organizational buyers throughout the country that do business with multicultural and women-owned businesses use the list. The Div500 is produced annually by DiversityBusiness.com, the nation's leading multicultural B2B Internet portal that links large organizational buyers to multicultural product and service suppliers.

“We are so pleased and honored to have been recognized by the Div500,” said Mary Catona, president and CEO of RWM. “We work hard to be a successful and diverse women-owned business. To be recognized in this way is truly an honor for us.”

RWM will be honored at a special awards ceremony at DiversityBusiness.com’s 5th Annual Multicultural Business Conference, taking place March 30 – April 2, 2005 at the Foxwoods Resort Casino in Mashantucket, Connecticut.
