Mardie Caldwell, CEO of Lifetime Adoption Center and the new Foothills Event Center (formerly Weaver Auto) at 400 Idaho Maryland Road in Grass Valley, is being honored as the “woman-owned business of the year” by the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA). The annual award is based on a number of criteria including financial performance, business and employee growth, innovativeness of product and services, response to adversity and community contributions.
Caldwell says “I am honored to be chosen,”. “I hope to encourage and help other Nevada County businesses succeed by working together, encouraging tourism and local buying. Together we can make our community stronger with increased jobs and opportunities which will benefit our beautiful foothill communities.”
Lifetime Adoption was founded by Caldwell in 1986 and is one of the larger Nevada County employers. Caldwell expanded her operations last year to include offices in Yuba City and New Port Richey, Florida. She also owns a number of other small companies providing employment and contracts to many other businesses in Nevada County.
