NAWBO Columbus Business Champion Award

Congratulations to Mary McCarthy, winner of this year’s NAWBO Columbus Business Champion Award! Announced this past Thursday at the Chapter’s Annual Meeting, the award recognizes one outstanding person who advocates for the growth and success of women in business. Honorees must support legislative and regulatory efforts, work to increase business and financial opportunities, improve the business climate and be an advocate for women business owners. Overall, the honoree helps to enable women business owners across Central Ohio to achieve their potential.

Mary, Owner and President of YMT Consultants, exemplifies these qualities and many more in advocating for women business owners across Ohio. Over the past several years, Mary has been actively involved in many of the Chapter’s public policy efforts. For example, she was instrumental in the efforts to get approval of the Women's Microbusiness Legislation, HB5. Mary has over 20 years of experience as a business owner and consultant, she is a member of NAWBO's public policy committee and is an advocate for women business owners. In addition to YMT Consultants, Mary is Co-Founder of the Women's Small Business Accelerator (WSBA), helping many women to start and grow their businesses across the Columbus area.  

We would like to congratulate Mary again for winning this year’s Business Champion Award!
