Local businesswomen honored by Mississippi Business Journal

Two Oxford businesswomen were recently recognized by the Mississippi Business Journal for their leadership roles in business and the impact their work has made in Mississippi.

Chief Executive Officer of 662 Marketing Company, Kate Rossen, was named to the Top CEO in Mississippi group and Emily Suber, director of sales for 662 Marketing Co., was named as one of the 50 Leading Business Women.

Rossen received her award on Jan. 30 and Suber received hers on Feb. 13.

“I really consider this to be a team effort, but proud we can be recognized in such a large capacity,” Rosson said. “I love being able to fulfill unique needs for small businesses in towns like Oxford, Starkville and other Southeastern Conference communities.”

662 Marketing is a marketing agency devoted to building a presence for small-town businesses in North Mississippi. The agency created the “Parents of” platform, which helps parents get acquainted with local resources at colleges their children are attending.

Rossen is a previous president of the Oxford-Lafayette Chamber of Commerce and former owner of A Bash Events. In 2007, Rossen was named one of the Top 50 Leading Business Women by the Mississippi Business Journal.

Suber is a 2005 graduate from the University of Mississippi.

“It was an honor to be included among this amazing group of women and I am humbled at the opportunity to be recognized as one of them,” Suber said.

The Mississippi Business Journal recognizes influential women business leaders who are making an impact on the economy of the state.
