MED Week Awards go to Businesses

Spotlight on Med Week Winners

Spot Dixon ChamberThree minority-owned businesses were recognized by the Wilmington Chamber of Commerce for their success over the previous 18 months, honors that were awarded as part of the Cape Fear region’s recent annual Minority Enterprise Development (MED) Week.

Companies must have demonstrated success through evidence of increased sales or profitability, growth, response to adversity, or contributions to community-oriented projects.

The winner of the Woman-Owned Business Category was JEANETTE OMDALEN, owner and CEO of Highland Roofing Co.

“At Highland, Omdalen leads the entire organization in its mission to build relationships and make life easier for clients by providing exceptional service and quality at a fair price. The company has grown at least 25% over the past five years,” a news release says.

The winner of the African-American-Owned Business Category was BRENDA DIXON (above) of Get That Deed. “Dixon recognized many hardworking families struggle to keep housing within their budget, and affordable housing is becoming anything but affordable for many families,” officials say.

The Latin American-Owned Business Category winners were CHRIS MONTERO and EVIE MORALES, of Perfect Touch Rental, an event and party rental company. They partnered in 2020 to start the company, which offers advanced tenting technology and custom event strategy services.
