Commonwealth Capital Corp. Honored with Four Business Awards by DiversityBusiness.com

TAMPA, Fla., May 18, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Commonwealth Capital Corp., a leading equipment leasing and financial services company, has been honored with four awards by DiversityBusiness.com, including recognition as one of the Top 500 Women Owned Businesses in the United States, Top 100 Diversity Owned Businesses in Florida, Top 50 Owned Businesses in Florida and Top 100 Privately-Held Businesses in Florida.

Commonwealth’s Chairman and CEO Kimberly Springsteen-Abbott received the awards at DiversityBusiness.com’s 16th Annual National Summit in New York City.

“We are proud and honored to be recognized by DiversityBusiness.com as one of the top women-owned businesses in the country,” said 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 pleased by their acknowledgement.”

DiversityBusiness.com is the nation’s leading multi-cultural business website and announces the Div500 each year, qualifying an annual listing of the Top 500 diversity-owned businesses. Ranging in revenue size from $20 million to more than $1 billion, the companies listed on the Div500 represent the nation’s top companies and challenge the belief that diversity-owned businesses are small or insignificant.

Commonwealth President Hank Abbott remarked, “Since 2008, Commonwealth and our team have received more than two dozen awards in recognition of our business leadership and diversity. We continue to be inspired and gratified by this acknowledgement and endeavor to serve as an example of business excellence for others to follow.”
