Boston – Kaplan Construction announced that it has been certified as a Women Business Enterprise (WBE) by the commonwealth of Massachusetts.
Kaplan recently announced the culmination of a three-year management transition where Jane Kaplan Peck was appointed chief operating officer (COO) and majority owner.
WBEs are entities that are at least 51% owned and/or controlled by women.
Minority Business Enterprises (MBEs) and women-owned businesses provide ever-increasing value to the Massachusetts economy, making up the state’s fastest growing business sector in the commonwealth.
“My vision for Kaplan Construction as a Women Business Enterprise is twofold: to continue to service our clients in the personal and professional manner we have in the past, and to participate in new opportunities with potential clients who are seeking to meet their own diversity objectives,” said Peck. “I plan to utilize our core principles and build on Kaplan’s 38 years of excellence as we widen our base of satisfied clients.”
