Cascadia Consulting Group Adds WBE Certifications in Washington and California

SEATTLE, WA, Sunday, May 07, 2017— As a result of Cascadia’s 2015 ownership transition, the firm has been certified as a Women-Owned Business Enterprise (WBE) by the State of Washington’s Office of Minority and Women’s Business Enterprise (OMWBE). This certifies that Cascadia is majority owned, controlled, and managed by one or more women.

The second-generation ownership team includes Co-Presidents Amity Lumper and Ruth Bell, Managing Principal Francis Icasiano, and Principal Christy Shelton. 

“These certifications help us to live out our core values as an organization,” says Bell. “We’re looking forward to developing new partnerships and pursuing new opportunities that will allow us to further protect and restore our world.”

This recognition builds on Cascadia’s existing certifications:

  • City of Los Angeles – WBE
  • Los Angeles County – WBE
  • Los Angeles Metro – Small Business Enterprise (SBE)
  • City of Oakland – Local Business Enterprise (LBE)
  • King County (Washington) – Small Contractor and Supplier (SCS)
