MBDA Acting National Director Chris Garcia spoke at the National Association of Securities Professionals (NASP) 28th Annual Pension and Financial Services Conference in Los Angeles, CA. Director Garcia recognized NASP contribution to minority business enterprises, "the founders of NASP, including the late Mr. Travers Bell and Mr. Maynard Jackson, understood that Black and minority pioneers on Wall Street had a unique and dual obligation. Their obligation was not just to make money and provide greater opportunity for their families, but also to structure deals that would create greater economic growth and jobs for underserved communities. This message is as true today as it was when Mr. Bell first opened his doors on Wall Street." Mr. Garcia acknowledged the need for continued partnership with NASP and the need to support minority businesses.
