Washington, D.C. (April 4, 2017) – Global Services is pleased to announce that President and CEO Courtney Fairchild has received the Enterprising Women of the Year award for 2017 from Enterprising Women magazine. This award honors women business owners who have demonstrated that they have fast-growth businesses, mentor or actively support other women and girls involved in entrepreneurship, and stand out as leaders in their communities. Many of the award recipients are also leaders in key organizations that support the growth of women’s entrepreneurship. Winners were recognized at the 15th Annual Enterprising Women of the Year Awards Celebration on April 2 – April 4 at the Ritz-Carlton Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

“The Enterprising Women of the Year Awards Celebration continues to grow each year, attracting more nominations from outstanding women entrepreneurs around the world. Our class of 2017 includes honorees from the United States, Canada, Uganda, South Africa, The Netherlands and several other countries,” Monica Smiley, publisher/CEO of Enterprising Women, said. “When this awards program began 15 years ago, there were only a handful of nominees in what was then the highest revenue category -over $10 million in annual revenues. Our Class of 2017 includes several women in the ‘over $100 million in annual revenues’ category. The Enterprising Women of the Year Award has grown each year in prestige and stature so women entrepreneurs at all levels want to be recognized with this award for the great work they are doing.
