Arbill, a privately-held, award-winning safety company, headquartered in Philadelphia, PA, announced that CEO Julie Copeland was inducted into the Women’s Business Enterprise (WBE) Hall of Fame.
The WBE Hall of Fame recognizes the contributions of women entrepreneurs in their communities, as well as their accomplishments within their industries, and has inducted incredible leaders over the past seven years.
This list includes, Indra Nooyi (first female CEO in PepsiCo history), Mazzie Moses (co-founder, Telecom Electric Supply Company), and Lynn A. Boccio (founder and current director of Avis Budget Group’s Supplier Diversity Team), among many others.
Copeland has been a strong advocate for women-owned businesses throughout her career and has been a member of WBE since 2005. In 2014, she served as Co-chair of the WBE National Conference & Business Fair and Chair of the Women’s Enterprise Leadership forum. Copeland is passionate about engaging WBEs in the robust educational and networking opportunities available to them and was part of the first Envoy program reaching out to the WBE community for the Women’s Business Enterprise Council (WBENC) of PA-DE-NJ.
For Arbill, Copeland has driven strategic and expansive growth since becoming CEO in 2005. She expanded Arbill’s business to a national footprint, developed Arbill’s own safety product line - Truline®, and has transformed Arbill into a full-service safety solutions company.
