2023 WBC Co-Chairs

The Women’s Business Council was formed in 2010 with the goal of helping to accelerate the advancement of women in business – whether they are employees or entrepreneurs, mid-level administrators or senior management. The WBC hosts educational programs and events to assist women with the ultimate goal of their success. Men and women are invited to attend all events.

"The Fauquier Chamber Women’s Council is an asset to women in business, local organizations and the community. The monthly meetings offer a wonderful opportunity for women to come together,  discuss pertinent topics with experts, and formulate a network that empowers Fauquier’s entrepreneurs".

When Jackie Krick founded ecucomm, Virginia based marketing agency in 2004, her goal was to make an impact on the marketing world and her community. She did both. Fast forward to today, and we?re a full-service digital marketing communications agency that has developed award-winning campaigns for dozens of local, state, and federal government agencies, as well as leading non-profits, and private sector brands.

In the process, Jackie has used her platform to advocate for other area entrepreneurs and helped to advance underserved charitable interests, both locally and nationally, through her IMPACTO Youth Foundation. As a minority and woman-owned small business, ecucomm celebrates diversity and is committed to fostering a work environment where everyone feels respected and heard.
