Strategy and Management Services, Inc. (SAMS) achieves Woman Business Enterprise (WBE) Certification, Continues Progress toward Five Year Growth Goals
The award-winning government and commercial contracting company announces prestigious recognition of next milestone achievement in strategic growth plan

SPRINGFIELD, VA – December 8, 2015 - Strategy and Management Services, Inc. (SAMS), an award-winning, SBA 8(a) program participant, verified SDVOSB, EDWOSB, SBA-certified SDB small business, and Commonwealth of Virginia SWaM certified company that provides a range of enterprise-wide solutions for federal agencies, state and local governments and commercial buyers, announces today that it will add Woman Business Enterprise (WBE) to its list of distinguished certifications.

After completing the certification process, SAMS has been selected by The Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC) and the Women Presidents’ Educational Organization (WPEO) to receive this prominent recognition. With seven years of demonstrated success as a female entrepreneur, Staci L. Redmon, President and CEO of SAMS, proudly claims full ownership of her company. Through her strong leadership and strategic vision, SAMS has experienced exponential growth, achieving a Compound Annual Growth Rate of 199% each year since its founding.

A WBE certification opens many new doors and enables women-owned businesses the opportunity to foster relationships with a wide range of private and larger, publicly-held corporations across the nation. Obtaining a WBE certification is an important part of SAMS’ business development strategy. SAMS’ 2020 Vivid Vision document, released earlier this year, outlines their five year growth plan. SAMS plans to attain a more diversified client base by adding 60% non-federal clients by 2020. Receiving the WBE certification provides access to new business opportunities and acts as another stepping stone in reaching SAMS’ growth goals.

“As a small business, we are seeing less and less resources and opportunities coming from the public sector as a result of limited funding and budget cuts,” Staci L. Redmon, President and CEO of SAMS, stated. “This recognition is one way SAMS is being proactive and enables us to explore other avenues where we can make a difference. Moving forward, we’ll be leveraging the WBE certification to forge new connections and relationships with a wide range of companies across the nation.”
