Board of Directors

The Board of Directors provide leadership and strategic direction for the Northwest Mountain MSDC.  Composed of business leaders and executives from the leading companies and organizations in our region, they represent our corporate and public agency members and participate in the certification processing and development of minority business enterprises (MBEs).  In addition to their role in governance and oversight, the board is tasked with the final decision in approving or denying each application for MBE certification received from the Northwest Mountain MSDC and the Certification Committee.

We are extremely grateful to our Board of Directors and the organizations they represent for their dedication and commitment to supplier diversity.
