Vickie Milazzo Institute Ranks 6th Among “Top 25 Woman-Owned Businesses”
HOUSTON, August 25, 2006 – Vickie Milazzo Institute ranked 6th among Houston’s “Top 25 Woman-Owned Businesses” based on total revenue. The Houston Business Journal bestowed this prestigious award on founder and president Vickie L. Milazzo, RN, MSN, JD.
In addition to the “Top 25” award, Milazzo also ranked in 21st place among “Top 50 Fastest-Growing Woman-Owned Businesses.” Both of these awards are based on rankings of privately held, 100% woman-owned firms in Houston.
Both recognitions are momentous in the nation’s fourth largest city since there are more than 100,000 privately held, woman-owned firms in Houston. “It’s exciting to see local women succeed at the very highest levels. Their thriving businesses represent an elite core of the more than 9 million woman-owned businesses across the nation,” said Mike Ballases, Houston Chairman of Chase Bank, the main sponsor of the event.
Founded in 1982 in Milazzo’s one-bedroom condo with a staff of one, Vickie Milazzo Institute now occupies 8,400 square feet of office space with an extensive support staff.
“I’m proud to be part of this group of successful women entrepreneurs,” said Milazzo. “Enterprise is in a woman’s DNA – just look at what we accomplish. Whether we choose to use our enterprising strength to start a venture of our own, manage a family or build a corporate career, women understand enterprise. It’s already inside them.”
“The biggest reward for me is being able to positively influence so many of my students’ careers and witness the astonishing change in their lives as a result of our training,” she said. “This honor confirms my passion and the dedication of my staff for what we do.”
