MBDA Helps Donnelly & Moore Corporation Weather Setbacks
When Donnelly & Moore Corp., a technology staffing and recruiting firm, got off the ground in 1997, it was a one woman operation in one of the most competitive markets in the country, system conversions. Today, with revenues in excess of $10 million, the firm has broadened its services, providing information technology staffing and full life cycle software development solutions to both public and private organizations.
Despite major setbacks from 9-11 to super storm Sandy, the company has continued to grow — in part, thanks to help from the New York City MBDA Business Center. The Center provided marketing, consulting, and access to private contract opportunities. This has helped the company generate 30 new jobs with $15 million in contracts during the past year.
"I urge minority-owned businesses — especially in the New York City area — to reach out to the MBDA. They help you connect with those large corporations that might otherwise not even look at you as a potential source," said Eileen Guzzo, Founder.
