Painters USA is a certified woman-owned company.

Our WBENC (Women’s Business Enterprise National Council) certification validates much more than supplier diversity.

If you ask her how long she’s been with Painters USA, President Meg Cook laughs and asks back, “Do you mean paid or unpaid?” 

For many years, as her husband Paul managed operations and sales, Meg did the invoicing and payroll, without taking a paycheck and while working another full-time job. Gradually, Meg became more involved in Painters USA and quit her day job. It was a client who recommended WBENC (Women Business Enterprise National Council) certification, which Meg initially resisted. But after learning more about the process, they decided to go for it.

In 2014, Painters USA became a certified woman-owned business enterprise, a status they've maintained ever since in an annual recertification process.

Women in construction trades

While the number of new woman-owned businesses has surged, the construction trades continue to be male-dominated. According to the American Express 2019 State of Women-Owned Businesses Report:

Between 2014 and 2019, the number of woman-owned firms in construction expanded by 68%  and their revenue grew by 31%, yet woman-owned businesses still comprise less than five percent of the construction industry.

As a WBENC certified business during those years, Painters USA is happy to be part of the group and proud to offer career opportunities and valuable skills to women in painting, coating, and flooring.

Why WBENC certification matters

As a certified Women's Business Enterprise, Painters USA is both a Tier 1 and Tier 2 supplier to major corporations that are committed to satisfying their diversity spending goals and expanding supplier networks in the communities they serve. Yet supplier goals can never come at the expense of business requirements for reliability, quality, and value, and certifying agencies like WBENC also play a vital role in that regard.

WBENC not only ensures a legitimate claim to woman ownership and leadership; the agency also validates financial and operational excellence. In short, certification demonstrates that a supplier like Painters USA can meet a number of different requirements:

WBENC certification process

The WBENC process can last several months as it includes a variety of reporting and inspection requirements. To become certified:

Benefits of working with a woman-owned business

Other women in management roles at Painters USA

President Meg Cook says this about key female managers she relies upon:

Nicole Hanik, Chief Operating Officer

“We would not have been able to grow without Nicole’s big picture view of possible improvements and how to get them done.”

Laura Schulz, Regional Vice President, DFW Texas Region

“Since Laura did construction work with her dad during summers off from school, she brings working knowledge and tactics to the management team.”

Philomena Perez-Vaughan, Director of Human Resources

“Finding and keeping good tradespeople with the work ethic we need is an ongoing challenge, but Philomena and her team make it happen.”
