Monongalia County Business Woman Named WV Small Business Person of the Year

Posted: Updated:

A Monongalia County business woman received a surprise this morning.

The West Virginia Small Businesses Administration has named Diane Lewis the West Virginia Small Business Person of the year.

Lewis is the president and CEO for "Action Facilities Management", a government and commercial site-support contractor.

"It's confirmation that you have actually done something that helps promote West Virginia, you actually help promote the economy in West Virginia and you're providing jobs for West Virginia," Lewis said.

In 2010 the SBA named Lewis its Minority Small Business Champion.

Senator Jay Rockefeller called her "a shining example of what it means to build a company from the ground up."
