JetCo Federal and Women Impacting Public Policy
JetCo Federal is honored to have been selected as the recipient of the WIPP Woman-Owned Small Business of the Year. JetCo Federal’s President, Sue Schweim Tellier, has served on WIPP’s Leadership Advisory Council since 2017, and she recently spoke as an expert on compliance at a WIPP webinar.
Candace Waterman, President & CEO of WIPP, said, “Sue was honored for her leadership, support, and commitment to women’s business community. Since the pandemic, she participated in almost every WIPP webinar/educational program offering, provided sound advice, updates, and resources to the community who need it most, small businesses.”
“This award is SUCH a big deal to me – not only because we were selected as WOSB of the year, but because of the organization that selected us,” said Sue Schweim Tellier, President at JetCo Federal. “WIPP attracts brilliant leaders of innovative, growing companies. Through WIPP, I’m surrounded by ambitious, confident women I deeply respect. This isn’t just any recognition, or just any award. This is from an organization and women leaders I deeply admire.”
WIPP is a national nonpartisan organization that aims to increase woman entrepreneurs’ impact on the nation’s public policy, economic opportunities, and alliances with other organizations. WIPP also aims to create equality for Woman-Owned Small Businesses (WOSB) in federal contracting, ensure fair tax treatment for all businesses, and increase in capital for the businesses they partner with.
