This past summer, PetroCard was presented the 2017 MBE to MBE Inclusion Award by the Northwest Mountain Minority Supplier Development Council (NW MSDC) for efforts in working with other minority businesses in the Pacific Northwest. The Council’s focus is to aid in the growth and development of minority-owned businesses.
“As a certified Minority Business Enterprise (MBE), our certification provides value to our customers who look to diversify and qualify for supplier diversity spend. As companies look to work with us due to our services and MBE certification, PetroCard also looks to do the same with other MBE companies,” said Jennie Hanson, director of sales and marketing at PetroCard. The nomination was based on the number of vendors and relationships through the NW MSDC.
In addition to the MBE award, PetroCard was also recognized for 13 years of involvement with the organization at the NW MSDC 40th anniversary breakfast. “Jennie Hanson has developed close and productive relationships with council staff and industry participants and has been instrumental in growing both our support of other MBE’s and our recognition as a MBE supplier. It was clear to me from this event how much these efforts are appreciated by council leadership and participants,” said PetroCard President Laura Yellig.
