“Ernst & Young is such a powerful firm that being associated with them, and honored by them via the Winning Women award, really boosted our credibility and visibility. More importantly, we attribute a portion of new sales as being largely the result of relationships and networking opportunities that Ernst & Young has gone above and beyond to facilitate. While we have historically grown at the rate of >35% annually, we anticipate growing by 50% or more this year, and we believe that the Winning Women program was a vital part of the impetus.” Sherry Stewart Deutschmann, Founder and CEO, LetterLogic, Entrepreneurial Winning Women Class of 2009, and WPO Member.
