Tallahassee, FL – (April 24, 2015) The Datamaxx Group (Datamaxx), led by CEO, President, and Co-Founder Kay Stephenson, was named one of Florida’s 2015 Top Women-Led Businesses by The Commonwealth Institute (TCI), a distinction earned for nine consecutive years. The rankings are based on an annual survey distributed to roughly 5,000 businesses in Florida and analysis of survey responses by Kaufman Rossin, a South Florida accounting firm. Datamaxx ranked 27th and was the only Northwest Florida-based company included on the list.
The Commonwealth Institute in South Florida is a non-profit organization that helps women entrepreneurs, CEOs, and corporate executives build successful businesses through peer mentoring programs. In addition to looking at the characteristics of women leaders and their businesses and determining the Top 50 Women-Led Businesses, the survey found that 85% of women leading Florida businesses project moderate or substantial growth in their firms’ revenue and 60% expect to increase staff members.
“I’m honored that Datamaxx was recognized as a top women-led business again by The Commonwealth Institute and proud to represent Northwest Florida on the list,” commented Kay Stephenson. “Hopefully, our recognition will lead to increased awareness of the excellent business climate of Northwest Florida.”
