Entrepreneur of the Year Award

Fort Washington, MD — October 25, 2017 — On October 17 at the Maryland Women’s Business Center’s Second Annual Award Luncheon, Pinnacle Talent Acquisition President & CEO, Dawn Taylor was awarded the Woman Entrepreneur of the Year award.  The award is in recognition of Ms. Taylor’s leadership, advocacy and engagement in empowering women in the workplace and strengthening the State and County’s economy.  In acknowledgement of being honored as Entrepreneur of the Year, she was presented with Official Citations from US Senator for Maryland, Chris Van Hollen and Prince George’s County Senator C. Anthony Muse.

Her nomination spoke to her dedication to the staffing and human resources consulting industry where she has amassed not only a large network but also, life changing and life affirming relationships.  Ms. Taylor has been responsible for many people finding the job of their dreams and securing their future.  She has helped numerous companies acquire top-notch talent along with ensuring companies continued growth via human resources consulting and outsourcing.  PTA is an extension of organization’s staff helping with a myriad of human resources initiatives.  Ms. Taylor and her colleagues have helped non-profit and for-profit entities throughout the region with on site, virtual and project based human resources consulting.  She is committed to delivering a personalized, authentic service where communication is at the heart of everything PTA does.  Ms. Taylor’s life is a superior example to the everyday woman working to better their communities as they grow their businesses. 

Ms. Taylor stated, “I am humbled by this honor.  Women entrepreneurs face immense difficulties managing work and family, along with competing in a world that does not recognize our leadership in this arena.  For over 10 years, women are starting companies faster than our male counter parts.  However, funding, loans and support are not readily available.  Consequently, we need the Maryland Women’s Business Center’s support that has made a difference in all areas of women in business.”

“The MWBC applauds the phenomenal women entrepreneurs in Maryland that are having a significant impact on their community.  It wouldn’t be possible without the collective participation from our business counselors, clients, volunteers, partners and sponsors who believe in the power of women entrepreneurship,” said Managing Director of the MWBC, Kiesha Haughton.
