“I have worked with Bob on the promotion of woman and minority owned businesses in the construction arena for many years.  During that experience, I have witnessed his ability to mentor businesses and grow their capabilities to take on new opportunities.  He has also been very effective in the outreach to majority owned firms and public agencies to promote opportunities for the businesses he represents.  Bob’s work in this area has done much to forward the cause of inclusionary contracting in our industry.”
