Los Angeles, CA, August 2011 – The Los Angeles Business Journal once again gave the nod to Par Avion’s business acumen and listed them 31st on the list of the largest women-owned businesses in Los Angeles County. This reflects a precipitous rise from their 2009 ranking of #36.
Par Avion—a full-service convention housing, travel and meeting management company—secured this position in the upper echelons of The List by expertly navigating 2010’s murky economic waters with $19 million in earnings.
President and CEO of Par Avion Toby Brenner was thrilled by the news. “I have nothing but respect and admiration for my fellow women business owners in Los Angeles and I feel privileged that Par Avion has once again joined their ranks,” she said. “Our thanks go out to the Los Angeles Business Journal for continuing to highlight our accomplishments.”
Achieving #31 on The List was especially rewarding given the challenges facing the event industry. “As companies tighten their belts to weather an uncertain marketplace, they tend to scale back on their events,” Brenner commented. “But thanks to our fervent commitment to customer service and the success of our clients, Par Avion remains a force in the industry.”
