Atlanta, GA – Simplified Technology Solutions, Inc, an Atlanta-based software development company providing custom application development and systems integration services, announced today that the company has promoted Lisa Duke to CEO and majority share holder, thus making STS a Women-Owned Business Enterprise (WBE). Though Simplified Technology Solutions has had shared ownership by both men and women since its inception, STS has recently granted controlling interest to CEO Lisa Duke. “I am thrilled with the company’s decision and am looking forward to working with the WBENC to obtain third-party verification of our woman-owned status,” says Duke. “This is a valuable tool in accessing corporate supplier diversity programs within corporations and governmental procurement programs.”
Duke is a graduate of the prestigious University of the South with honors and a double major in English and Political Science. With 10 years of executive level experience, her history is comprised of positions including Senior Business Systems Analyst, Senior Sales Director, and Director of Business Development. “Comfortable in any arena, Mrs. Duke is a force to be reckoned with,” says Scott Eastin, member of the senior management team of STS. “We are pleased that she has accepted this promotion and feel that STS will continue to thrive under her leadership.”
The certification process of WBENC is comprehensive and extends far beyond verification of legal ownership by women. Business owners seeking certification must provide clear and documented evidence that at least 51% of the company is women-owned, controlled, and operated. Says Duke, “We are thrilled to become a resource in the Atlanta area for companies looking for technology solutions delivered by a provider that fits their diversity requirements.”
