FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Volvo Announced as Sponsor for the 2015 OWL Awards
SACRAMENTO, Calif. (May 13, 2015) — Volvo, one of the world’s best known and respected brands within the commercial vehicle industry, has become a sponsor of the 2015 Outstanding Women Leader Awards produced by The National Association of Women Business Owners, Sacramento Valley chapter (NAWBO-Sac).
Now in its 18th year, the OWL Awards is Sacramento Valley’s leading event paying tribute to women entrepreneurs and business leaders who are advancing entrepreneurial excellence and community leadership.
“Volvo is a brand that is built on decades of hard-work and an impressive track record with women and American businesses,” said Anne Staines, President of NAWBO-Sac and President of ProProse, LLC. “We are very pleased to partner with Volvo and look forward to a rewarding long-term relationship.”
In 2004, Volvo launched its concept car, a vehicle for women built by women. Recently, the brand announced a $500million investment in its first U.S. plant, affirming its pledge to US businesses. In Sacramento, more than half (54%) of Niello Volvo of Sacramento’s clients are women, and that number is increasing.
“The Volvo brand is one that celebrates individuality, cultivates community and inspires innovation, just like the women of the NAWBO Sacramento Valley Chapter,” said Rick Niello, President of The Niello Company. “It’s truly a perfect pairing, one that all of us at Niello Volvo of Sacramento are proud to be a part of.”
The OWL Awards will be held on Thursday, October 15, 2015 at 5:30 pm at the Double Tree Hotel in Sacramento. Nominations open in a few weeks for the seven categories the awards offer: Woman on the Way Award, Innovator Award, Luminary Award, Executive Woman Award (recognizing a corporate leader who advances women in business), Vision Award (a nonprofit leader), and the Wise Woman Award (Business Owner of the Year).
