Aquent Honored as Minority Business of the Year

Aquent’s Phoenix office was recently named the 2009 Minority Business of the Year (Large Class MBE) by the Grand Canyon Minority Supplier Development Council (GCMSDC).

The honor, bestowed at the GCMSDC’s annual conference, recognizes Aquent’s leadership in client relationships and customer service as well as its active participation in the GCMSDC organization. The nomination originated with client Choice Hotels International Inc. in recognition of exemplary creation of a channel partner catalog. Accepting for Aquent was Lucas Mitchell, Account Director.

Aquent President Ann Webster congratulated the Phoenix team on its achievement, citing Aquent’s long-standing emphasis on fostering an inclusive culture through diversity.

“Aquent is committed to embracing individual differences and strengths,” Webster said. “This latest recognition by the GCMSDC is further affirmation of our companywide belief that the diversity of our employees, business partners, and suppliers results in a better workplace for everyone.”

“As our council’s Class 4 Supplier of the Year Award winner, Aquent serves as an outstanding role model for MBEs that aspire to reach that class level,” said Ron Williams, GCMSDC president/CEO. “Aquent’s accomplishments also encourage other MBEs to learn to partner and do business with each other as well as with major corporations.”
