"Woman Business Owner of the Year" Finalist -- National Association of Women Business Owners
The owner of Compucast, Judy Weitz, was selected as one of the top five finalists for "Woman Business Owner of the Year" by the National Association of Women Business Owners. The award recognizes "one outstanding woman entrepreneur, who has used creative initiatives to overcome obstacles, create jobs, grow a successful business, and help her community".
Judy’s tireless efforts to establish connections between her clients and their employees following Hurricane Katrina, in addition to her development of an employment engine for the New Orleans hospitality industry to help overcome the challenges then faced by both employers and employees—all at no charge—showed her commitment to her clients and to the city of New Orleans. These were just a few of the reasons cited by clients that led to her earning this national recognition.
