TAMPA, Fla. and PHILADELPHIA, June 29, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Commonwealth Capital Corp., a leading equipment leasing and financial services company, was recently honored with four awards during DiversityBusiness.com's 15th Annual National Summit held at the Harvard Club in New York City on Thursday, April 30. This year, Commonwealth was recognized as one of the Top 50 Women Owned Businesses in Florida, one of the Top 100 Privately-Held Businesses in Florida, one of the Top 100 Diversity-Owned Businesses in Florida, and one of the Top 500 Women-Owned Businesses in the U.S.
"We are proud and honored to be recognized by DiversityBusiness.com as one of the top women-owned businesses in the country," said Commonwealth Capital Corp. Chairman and CEO Kimberly Springsteen-Abbott. "DiversityBusiness.com's annual summits bring together entrepreneurs, government agencies, non-profits and Fortune 500 corporations to celebrate the important role diversity plays in the ongoing strength and continuing growth of our national economy. It is a prestigious group of business leaders and we are humbled by their acknowledgement."
Hosting a major business summit for the 15th year, DiversityBusiness.com is the nation's leading multicultural business website and announces the Div500 each year, qualifying an annual listing of the Top 500 diversity-owned businesses.

We continue to be inspired and gratified by this acknowledgement and will continue to strive to serve as an example of business excellence for others to follow."
Since 2001, DiversityBusiness.com compiles business data annually and awards are given to each of the Top 500 diverse-owned businesses in the country. These businesses have risen to become the most recognized and esteemed group of companies that distinguish themselves in the marketplace.
