The Arkansas Capital Corporation is pleased to announce the appointment of Martha Moore, owner and president of McCormick Works in Ozark, Ark., to its all-volunteer board of directors. “I am pleased to have Martha join our board, as she brings valuable business skills and insight, as well as geographic diversity to our board,” said Rush Deacon, acting president of Arkansas Capital Corporation. Moore was recently awarded the Women’s Foundation of Arkansas’s “2013 Woman Business Leader of the Year.” The Women’s Foundation of Arkansas established this award to recognize a woman in Arkansas who has shaped the success of her organization/business and demonstrated leadership, professional achievement and contributed not only to her workplace, but also her community. In the Women’s Foundation’s biography of Moore, it was noted that she “worked her way up in the company her father, Edward McCormick, started in the 1980’s; from steamroller operator to secretary to office manager and ultimately buying the company piece by piece until she was 100 percent owner. Moore is now approaching her 23nd year of business, which alone is cause for celebration in these tough economic times. She has built strong relationships with many men and women in the industry, and has a well-supported and solid reputation for her company. As a member of the first Mexican-American family in her town, she grew up with a passionate ambition to overcome poverty, to rise to challenges and achieve her life-long dreams.” The Arkansas Capital Corporation Group of companies empower entrepreneurs by providing capital to businesses through its capital availability products and advocating for entrepreneurs through capital, educational, and technological improvements.
