Denise Booms-Pepin communicates leadership
Editor’s note: Each issue of the Influential Women enewsletter will feature a profile of one of the Business Journal’s reigning Top Women Owned Businesses finalists. The profile first appeared in the event program.
CBI Telecommunications has been providing telecom expense management solutions since 1991.
For more than 30 years, Denise Booms-Pepin has been a business owner and advocate for women in business.
She has served on the board of several local businesses and nonprofit organizations.
Her enthusiasm to help others succeed is a trademark of her success. She is not only interested in her own career growth, but in developing the growth of those around her.
Booms-Pepin’s passion to succeed has resulted in at least a half dozen successful companies throughout the years.
Her focus in the telecom industry over the past 20 years has resulted in CBI being an industry pioneer in the TEM field.
“The focus is and always has been on the customer and getting them results,” Booms-Pepin said. “It was and still continues to be the driving force of our leadership and the entire team.”
Booms-Pepin has been involved with the Women’s Resource Center and a key contributor to the Pillar Awards Committee within that group.
The company also contributes to several local and national nonprofit funds and events.
She has also held leadership positions with Whiteboard Small Business Development and Tamarack Power Sports.
“Besides owning a successful business that did not downsize in the midst of a recession, Denise was the primary lead on obtaining the American Red Cross (account) on a national level,” read her nomination form.
CBI Telecommunications was nominated as a Top Women Owned Business in the $1.49 million and under annual revenue category.
