NAWBO is proud to announce we have appointed Molly Gimmel of Design To Delivery Inc (D2DInc) as Chair of the 2018-2019 Board of Directors. The NAWBO National Board is comprised of a diverse representation of the women business community across the country. While each board member brings her own unique strengths and business experience to the table, all come with the same common goal to help elevate women business owners through education and community support, and by raising awareness and engagement about policies to ensure women business owners excel in our national economy.
“This year marks the 30th anniversary of The Women’s Business Ownership Act, a legacy of the NAWBO organization, and singlehandedly, the most pivotal piece of legislation for women business owners in America,” says Molly. “I know with this amazing group of women, our efforts this year will echo those of our predecessors, educating fellow women entrepreneurs and advocating for policies that advance women business owners for generations to come.”
As co-founder and CEO of D2DInc, Molly has been working in the field of government contracting and acquisition management since 1991. Before founding D2DInc, she spent eight years working in the government practices of three of the “Big Five” accounting/consulting firms. She is a recognized expert in government contracting and is regularly asked to speak to small business organizations and other groups interested in federal contracting. She was named an Enterprising Woman of the Year in 2014 by Enterprising Women magazine.
The 2018-2019 NAWBO Board of Directors will be comprised of: Molly Gimmel – Chair; Kathleen Warnick – Past Chair; Jeanette Armbrust - Chair Elect, Cristina Morales Heaney, Tanya R. Allen, Susan Dawson, Lydia Chicles, Karen Bennetts and Lisa Copolla.
The new board was installed on June 18 in Washington, DC and will be formally introduced to the business community at the National Women’s Business Conference hosted by NAWBO, September 23-25 in Spokane, Washington.
