BOSTON – October 26, 2015 – Kaplan Construction, a WBE general contractor and construction management firm providing comprehensive building programs across Greater Boston, announced today that it has been named to the list of Top 100 Women-Led Businesses in Massachusetts by The Commonwealth Institute (TCI).
TCI was founded 17 years ago to help women-led businesses in Massachusetts become and stay successful. TCI’s membership includes local CEOs, senior corporate executives, directors of nonprofits, and proven solo professionals. For the past 14 years, TCI has created a list of the Top 100 Women-Led Businesses to highlight the achievements of these women throughout the state. Women-owned businesses account for almost 200,000 firms in Massachusetts and employ more than 180,000 people across the state.
“Each of the women on our Top 100 list has made a significant impact on the Commonwealth’s economy and has established herself as a visionary leader of a successful company. The Boston Globe has often reported on the accomplishments of the women on this list, and we’re excited to once again partner with the Boston Globe Magazine for this fantastic event,” said TCI Executive Director Aileen Gorman.
In 2014 Kaplan was certified as a Women Business Enterprise (WBE) by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and it announced the culmination of a three-year management transition in which Jane Kaplan Peck was appointed chief operating officer (COO) and majority owner.
“I am proud to be recognized with this honor,” said Jane Kaplan Peck, majority owner and chief operating officer (COO). “The caliber of women-led businesses on this list is impressive and it is gratifying to see more and more women being identified as role models and mentors in the business community.”
Founded in 1976, Kaplan Construction’s highly experienced staff has worked together for many years, building a strong resume of renovation and new construction projects along the way. The company’s long history of professional teamwork and collaboration, combined with detailed planning and thoughtful execution, provides clients with optimal results: well-built, cost-effective, and timely projects.
