Martha Moore is owner and President of McCormick Works located in Ozark, AR. Growing up in the small town of Altus, Arkansas, Martha experienced first-hand the dire need for change in our economy and country. As a member of the first Mexican-American family in her town, she grew up with a passionate ambition to overcome poverty, to rise to challenges and achieve her life-long dreams. Martha slowly worked her way up in the company her father, Edward McCormick, started in the 1980's; from steamroller operator to secretary to office manager and ultimately buying the company piece by piece until she was 100 percent owner. Martha is now approaching her 22nd year of business, which alone is cause for celebration in these tough economic times. She has built strong relationships with many men and women in the industry, and has a well-supported and solid reputation for her company.
