Mooresville's Meyer Voted A Leading Mom In Business
From press release

May 2009 –

The Welcome Committee Inc. has been recognized as one of the top 200 mom-owned businesses in StartupNation's 2009 Leading Moms in Business Competition.

The competition, co-sponsored by Vertical-Response, recognizes the achievements of mothers across the country who run outstanding businesses.

Welcome Committee, founded by Suzanne Meyer in 1999, is a word-of-mouth marketing company that pairs up newcomers and new homebuyers with area civic, business and professional services in the four-county Lake Norman region.

Meyer has three children, ages 12, 15 and 16.

"Moms across America were honored in this year's ranking, showing that they're capable of starting and running successful businesses while managing to balance family, career, home and self," said Rich Sloan, co-founder of StartupNation. Well over 600,000 votes were cast in support of several thousand contestants. "What an incredible achievement to be named a winner, and what an inspiration for anyone looking to start their own business."

"It's challenging for anyone to start and run a successful business“ particularly in this economy. These women are setting the standard for innovation and creativity," said Janine Popick, founder and CEO of Vertical-Response.

StartupNation launched the first annual Leading Moms in Business Competition in January to recognize the achievements of mom entrepreneurs across the United States. Winners were selected and ranked according to public votes accumulated from January through March 2009. The elite 200 win bragging rights and promotional support recognizing their achievements as the Leading Moms in Business.
