WASHINGTON, DC, July 30, 2012 – Lynda Ellis, Owner, President & CEO of Capitol Concierge, the nation’s largest provider of concierge services for commercial office properties, upscale apartments and condominiums, shopping malls, private corporations and individuals, was honored with induction into the Smart CEO Brava! Awards Inaugural Hall of Fame July 24th.
The Brava! Awards celebrate women business leaders who combine their irrepressible entrepreneurial spirit with a passion for giving back to the community. These female CEOs have become exemplary leaders in their companies and communities by encouraging local philanthropy, mentoring fellow CEOs and setting their companies on the path to tremendous growth.
Under Ellis’ leadership, Capitol Concierge has recorded a 5-year growth rate in revenue in excess of 20%, and made the “Inc 5000” list of fastest growing private companies in the U.S. for the last three years – a feat accomplished during the longest recession since the Great Depression. Capitol Concierge has also joined the Billion + Change initiative, dedicated to providing pro bono services to local nonprofits to make our communities stronger. Through its Capitol Cares program, the company’s 400 employees donated more than 3,850 hours of community service in 2011.
