RMS named in top female-powered business list

Resource Management Solutions (RMS) has been named one of the top 10 female-powered businesses in the UK in a nationwide report.

Darlington-based RMS – led by Carole Martin – was ranked third in the ‘Top 200 Female-Powered Businesses’ report commissioned by J.P. Morgan Private Bank, in partnership with data company Beauhurst.

Nearly 40,000 companies were analysed, revealing 10,647 female-powered businesses founded, led, owned, or managed by women, and ranked the top 200 companies based on growth in sales, headcount and valuation.

Samantha Saperstein, of JPMorgan Chase, said: “Recognising women’s resilience and critical role in the community and road to recovery is more important than ever. As the backbone of society, women-owned and led businesses are essential to local and national economies. We know that these businesses distribute wealth more equitably to women, especially considering that women-led businesses are more likely to employ women.”

Carole Martin, who founded RMS in 2000, said: “We are not only female-founded but the senior leadership team is 86 per cent female too. We work very hard here in the North East to be the best for our clients and employees. We are incredibly proud that we came in the top 10.”
