Lynn White knows as well as anyone that developing contacts and building relationships can make all the difference in successfully growing a business. Thanks to a chain of introductions set in motion by the business development specialists at the MBDA Business Center in Tulsa, Oklahoma, Mr. White was able to meet and spend time with contract officers at Tinker Air Force Base. The relationships he built led to a $4 million contract from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers that created and retained 31 jobs, and represented a 70% increase in sales.
The Tulsa MBDA Business Center and Ohopaki are continuing to work together to increase sales and build substantive relationships in the contracting community.
