Houston, TX, United States, 2010/09/01 - The Houston Business Journal selected Preferred Corporate Housing as the 29th Fastest-Growing Woman-Owned Business in the Greater Houston area in its annual ranking of the '50 Fastest-Growning Woman-Owned Businesses'.
On August 27, 2010, the Houston Business Journal in conjunction with Omnibank, The National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO), Women’s Business Enterprise Alliance (WBEA) and Fox KRIV, hosted the annual ‘Women in Business’ luncheon where the ’50 Fastest-Growing Woman-Owned Businesses’ were announced and ranked. Among the award winners was Preferred Corporate Housing (PCH), a nationwide temporary lodging provider owned by Samantha Elliott. Preferred Corporate Housing received a ‘Top thirty’ ranking by coming in at the 29th spot on the list.
“It is such an honor to be recognized amongst such wonderful talent and hard work,” said Elliott, “And to know that we are still ranked as a ‘Fastest-Growing’ company after almost 15 years of service in the 4th largest city in America means that we are on the right path.”
The flailing economy made 2009 a tough year for businesses, and to have posted any revenue at all was a fete in itself, but Preferred Corporate Housing was able to increase its revenue with a growth percentage of 16.91 from 2008 to 2009. “We went back to the basics,” said Elliott. “We focused on providing quality housing options for any temporary housing need no matter how big or small. By making smart choices and finding ways to refocus our attention on customer service and quality, we were able to survive 2009 without cutting a single job, without significant budget cuts to any department, and without sacrificing our level service.”
