ATLANTA, April 24, 2009

Bennett International Group will be honored at a special awards ceremony at DiversityBusiness.com’s “9th Annual Multicultural Business Conference”, taking place April 29 – May 1, 2009 at the Disney’s Contemporary Resort in Orlando, Florida.
“Bennett has earned Diversitybusiness.com’s ranking for several consecutive years now, and we’re honored to be a woman-owned company that is recognized for successfully delivering award-winning transportation services to customers for 35 years,” said Bennett’s Vice President of Supplier Diversity, Lynette Alt Mathis.

This is a whole business segment that can carry its own, that provides jobs, products and services, and generates wealth for their communities. These are the new leaders in American business.”
