The certification verifies that a business is at least 51% owned and controlled by a woman or group of women.

Lori Eichel draws upon her past career experience in business management, sales and marketing to serve as President of Accent Construction. Partner and CEO Jim Eichel has over 35 years of construction industry experience and oversees the technical aspect of Accent Construction’s operations.

The Women's Business Enterprise National Council is the nation's leading third-party certifier of WBEs for the private sector and is recognized and accepted by federal and government agencies as well as the majority of major corporations across the United States.
