July 16, 2013 // Franchising.com // Baltimore, Md. - Lorena Streb, owner of CertaPro Painters of Baltimore, was named one of 2013 SmartCEO’s Brava! award recipients. The Brava! awards, presented by Baltimore SmartCEO Magazine, celebrate women who have become exemplary leaders in their companies and the Baltimore community by encouraging local philanthropy, mentoring fellow CEOs and setting their businesses on a path to significant growth.

“I’m thrilled and humbled to be recognized as a Brava! honoree,” Streb said. “Receiving this award is a tremendous vote of respect and confidence from my colleagues in Baltimore, and I’m proud to serve the community through my small business.”

CertaPro Painters of Baltimore Central and Towson specializes in professional painting services for commercial, government, and residential establishments, both interior and exterior. Streb operates the company with her husband and business partner Dave.

Streb is heavily involved in local business and leadership organizations. She was the first woman in company history elected to serve on the seven-member CertaPro Franchise Organization Association (CPFOA), and was a founding member of CertaPro’s Brand Marketing Advisory Board.

Outside of the company, Streb has also served on the board of the Baltimore Hispanic Chamber of Commerce. In 2012, she was selected to serve on the Baltimore County Commission for Women. Through her CertaPro franchise, Streb has also donated time, supplies, and resources to help repaint the Baltimore Child Abuse Center and the Maryland Women’s Heritage Center and Museum, and has volunteered for Habitat for Humanity.

Streb and the other 2013 Brava! honorees are profiled in the July issue of Baltimore SmartCEO Magazine and were celebrated during a special event at the American Visionary Museum on Wed. July 10.
