Female--owned business thrives in Palestine
Wednesday, April 01, 2020
When Pentecom moved in 2017 into the old Alamo school and former Palestine Public Library building on Cedar Street, 18-year employee Miria Dean could not imagine Pentecom would outgrow the newly renovated 7,000-foot building in three years.
Pentecom already employs 60 workers, but the data conversion and consulting company is poised to hire dozens more within the next two years, President Kathy Rainbolt told the Herald-Press. “Anyone who has these skills should get in touch with our human resources department,” she said.
Like other workers at Pentecom, Dean supports her family with income and benefits earned at the company, and is amazed at its growth.
“I never worried my job would go away,” she said.
