Storm Creek, a supplier of eco-made outdoor-inspired apparel, announces it is certified as a Women’s Business Enterprise (WBE) through the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC), the nation’s largest third-party certifier of businesses owned and operated by women in the U.S.

Teresa Fudenberg, the company’s WBE CEO, along with her husband Doug Jackson, started Storm Creek in 2014. With Fudenberg as majority owner and the business, marketing, and people visionary, and Jackson as the product, factory, and supplier visionary, they went to work building the Storm Creek brand.

Fudenberg says she is proud of the Women-Owned Certification and what it represents. According to her, having a woman at the top presents a key perspective to what she calls “building an organization with your head and your heart.” Outside Storm Creek, she says the WBENC certification certainly opens many opportunities with organizations embracing a commitment to supply chain diversity.

“It’s unbelievable how lucky I am to be in a place where my passions and talents collide,” Fudenberg adds.

According to her, those passions of building up others and giving back to communities were ignited several years prior when she and a female colleague launched Mom Camp, a series of retreats and resources to help busy moms live their best lives. It combined her talents of filling a market need, drawing on key relationships, and creating community.

“This was an awesome opportunity for hundreds of women to take much-needed time for themselves, to help them realize their God-given talents and find balance in their lives,” remarks Fudenberg. “We had year-round events, diverse programming from camp counselors, major sponsors, and we provided scholarships for those who could not pay. It was my first major opportunity to do wonderful things for women — something I will always cherish.”
