Thirty-five years ago, at the inception of Creative Associates International, Charito Kruvant and her three female business partners had the tenacity, ambition, and, most importantly, the vision for the company they wanted to build to support people around the world to realize the positive change they seek.  Today, with experience in over eighty countries, the Creative team continues to carry out this vision.

In 1998, The Washingtonian, the Greater Washington Board of Trade, and Junior Achievement of Greater Washington founded the Washington Business Hall of Fame, a partnership of leading organizations committed to financial literacy and work readiness throughout the Washington area.  Creative is proud to announce Charito as one of the five 2012 Laureates!  On December 4, the Washington Business Hall of Fame will honor this year’s honorees and Junior Achievement students.  The awards ceremony benefits Junior Achievement, an organization dedicated to teaching youth personal finance and career education skills.  In 2012, 50,000 area students benefited from these programs.

Creative is honored and humbled to have its President and CEO recognized by an organization of its peers so clearly aligned with the Creative mission.

Congratulations Charito!
