Greenville, NC (PRWEB) October 29, 2014 -- LBA Group, Inc. (LBA) announced that the company has been granted minority certification by the Carolinas-Virginia Minority Supplier Development Council (CVMSDC) for 2014 - 2015. The CVMSDC is comprised of major corporations, financial institutions, government agencies, and universities that operate within North Carolina, South Carolina, and Virginia. It reviews and accredits minority small businesses as a pathway to a more diverse supplier base. Certified companies must meet specific criteria and provide required documentation in an application process that includes a site visit, Certification Committee Review, and final approval from a CVMSDC Board Review.
“As the chief executives of many of the country’s biggest companies see it, a diverse supplier base is no longer an option – it’s a business necessity,” the CVMSDC stated.
Minority suppliers are the country’s fastest growing sector, according to CVMSDC. LBA’s status as a Hispanic minority business enterprise means the company is in the position to meet the needs of other businesses that seek to be responsive to their customer’s diversity inclusion needs.
“We are pleased to be in the position to meet the needs of many companies in the wireless and communications sectors seeking a network of diverse suppliers,” LBA COO, Mike Britner said.
The CVMSDC reaffirmation of LBA’s status continues LBA Group’s role as a distinguished Minority Business Enterprise. The company has been honored with Top 50 diversity status in North Carolina on three occasions. It has also achieved INC5000 status twice.
