At this year's Minority Enterprise Development Week celebration in San Diego, CA I had an opportunity to speak with two MED Week award recipients who were recognized for their success in the professional services industry. Ideal System Solutions Inc., was awarded as Minority Business Enterprise of the Year, and Acro Service Corporation, was awarded as Minority Professional Services Firm of the Year. Each firm represents best–in-class for service delivery and is recognized for making significant contributions through the creation of jobs, their products and services, and support of their local communities. The awards were presented by MBDA National Director Alejandra Y. Castillo and National Deputy Director Albert Shen.
The award to Ideal System Solutions Inc. was accepted by CEO Elise Hernandez, who thanked the Minneapolis MBDA Business Center and the corporate supplier diversity programs of corporations such as Raytheon.
The award to Acro Service Corporation was accepted by CEO Ron Shahani, who thanked the St. Louis MBDA Business Center and the commitment and enthusiasm of Acro employees.
Both firms were able to connect with many of the large number of participants at this year's MED Week celebration to pursue new contracts that will keep these high-growth firms on track to achieve ever greater success, growth, and expansion.
