Professional Gifting Inc., an advertising specialty distributor, was just certified as woman owned. It is one of only a handful of promotional product distributors in Indiana that is woman-owned certified.

(Indianapolis, IN) July 29, 2009 – Professional Gifting Inc. has been granted the status of Women-Owned Business Enterprise by the Indiana State Department of Administration, Division of Minority and Women’s Business Enterprises. PG qualified for certification as a privately held Indiana-based company with at least 51% ownership represented by women.

To receive certification, a company must complete an extensive application and undergo an onsite evaluation and interview process. The stringent requirements ensure that purchasing agents for government entities and large corporations are truly doing business with a woman-owned firm.

Professional Gifting is a family owned and operated business. With over 20 years of expertise in the promotional product industry, Ken Reinstrom has helped grow the business to what it has become today. While Ken still plays an integral part in daily sales and operations, his wife, Dot, is now officially The Boss.

“Certification as a WBE marks a milestone for us at Professional Gifting,” she said. “As a seller of promotional products and branded apparel, we know our competition can be stiff. It’s important to remember that small businesses need to aggressively pursue every path available to them to achieve and maintain a strong competitive advantage. Making the effort to become certified demonstrates to our clients that we took their advice seriously.”
