While under the guidance of The Heico Companies’ Chairman Emily Heisley Stoeckel, Kinedyne received its certification from the WBENC and is proud to be a Women-Owned Business.
About WBE Certification Process & Requirements
In order to receive certification, the company must go through a meticulous process involving an in-depth review designed to confirm that the business seeking certification is at least 51% owned, operated, and controlled by a woman or women who are US citizens or Legal Resident Aliens; whose business formation and principal place of business are in the US or its territories; and whose management and daily operation is controlled by a woman with industry expertise. Kinedyne was awarded certification on April 3, 2017 based on the ownership, control, and operation of Kinedyne and its parent company, The Heico Companies, LLC, by Emily Heisley Stoeckel.
"We are thrilled to receive this certification by WBENC," said Emily. "This certification will allow us to become a better partner to many of our customers by helping them to meet their supplier diversity requirements." Emily provides strategic direction to the organization and leads The Heico Companies’ Board of Directors. She has devoted more than 20 years to the growth and development of The Heico Companies’ diverse portfolio of companies, including Kinedyne.
