Your role with NAMC-UM: Affiliate Member, MBE Member
Your Vision for Minority Businesses: To provide leadership, education and support for all MBE members and providing input/guidance to both the GCs and MBEs in order to facilitate challenges.
Your Vision for NAMC-UM: I will assist NAMC-UM in an Affiliate program that will be beneficial in building long term relationships with NAMC, its affiliates and its members supporting and building a larger database of affiliates along with NAMC-UM current and future members.
With your focus and your experience in business, how can/will you contribute to YOUR vision for Minority businesses and NAMC-UM? With years in the industry working for large general contractors and managing multi million dollar projects, I am aware of the challenges minority businesses face when trying to contract with GC’s and large scale projects. I will assist in providing a wider network connection between Affiliates and NAMC UM members around the Twin Cities providing guidance, support and facilitation between GCs and the minority businesses they need to connect with.
