MIAMI, September 27, 2011 – rbb Public Relations, a leading national marketing public relations firm, was named one of the top 50 women-led businesses in Florida at the Sixth Annual Women-Led Businesses in Florida Luncheon & Award Ceremony.

The winners, which were derived from a survey by The Commonwealth Institute South Florida (TCI) and the JAE Leadership Institute at the University Of Miami School Of Business Administration, exemplify the characteristics of woman leaders and their businesses.

“Groups like TCI validate the success women-led businesses have achieved,” said Christine Barney, CEO of rbb Public Relations. “rbb is 100% women-owned and it is through the strength of the three partner’s leadership that we have become a nationally ranked public relations agency.”

The Commonwealth Institute is a non-profit organization dedicated to the cultivation of women entrepreneurs, CEOs, and senior corporate executives, providing support during critical stages of business so as to promote growth. In addition to announcing the top 50 list, their studies found that women leaders are very optimistic about the future and are looking forward to the challenges facing them in the next year.
