SALINAS, CA – We love a marketing agency specializing in the produce sector. We extra love when said agency is backed by a strong group of diverse individuals, pushing the boundaries of what it means to be a business. That’s why we’re thrilled that Moxxy Marketing was recently certified as a Woman-Owned Small Business (WOSB) by the U.S. Small Business Association (SBA).
“This certification is a nice milestone for Moxxy and may create additional growth opportunities,” said Karen Nardozza, President and CEO. “But I’m proud of our entire team. Our diversity empowers our collaborative environment. Everyone at Moxxy has a voice and we expect them to use it. We encourage all Moxxers to engage fully—men and women, junior- and senior-levels, and all ages and positions.”
Qualifying for this certification is no easy feat. Companies must be 51 percent owned by women who are U.S. citizens and be directed and operated by women on the daily. In other words, the company must run on girl power! Founded by Nardozza in 2007, the business passed these requirements with flying colors.
Additional key leadership roles occupied by women include:
- Molly Briseño, who has worked with Nardozza in various capacities since 2005, is Moxxy’s Vice President responsible for operations and managing key accounts.
- Debbie Cintora, who has been with Moxxy for three years, rose quickly through the ranks from an entry-level account coordinator position she accepted upon graduating from college, to an accomplished account manager leading Moxxy’s largest client accounts and marketing campaigns.
“Karen has developed a unique environment at Moxxy, which has definitely influenced our service delivery and strong reputation,” said Briseño. “Full participation by everyone on the team is an important part of our culture, and it contributes to the amazing work quality that has fueled our growth and expansion.”
Moxxy headquarters are in Salinas, California, with satellite offices in Reno, Nevada, and Atlanta, Georgia. The company serves clients throughout the United States and has worked with companies in Canada, Mexico, and the Dominican Republic. Congratulations to Moxxy Marketing on its incredible certification as a WOSB!
