SDI Certified Minority Business Enterprise with National Minority Supplier Development Council (NMSDC)

Certification Meets Supplier Diversity Requirements of Many Large Government and Private Sector Organizations.

CHICAGO, IL, July 11, 2016 —  Mission-critical systems integrator SDI (SDI Presence LLC) announces that it has been certified as a Minority Business Enterprise (MBE) with the Chicago Minority Supplier Development Council (CMSDC). A CMSDC certification also provides SDI with National Minority Supplier Diversity Certification (NMSDC), one of the country’s leading diversity certification organizations that represents some of America’s largest public and privately-owned global companies.

David Gupta, Chief Executive Office of SDI, states: “One of our core values at SDI is the importance of our diversity – in our workforce, partnerships and perspectives – in providing exceptional technical solutions for our customers and business partners,” states Gupta. “In addition to our proven track record of on-time, on-spec and on-budget technology delivery, SDI now provides both our customers and business partners the added benefit of achieving their diversity requirements and supplier goals.”

The National Minority Supplier Development Council advances business opportunities for certified Asian, Black, Hispanic and Native American business enterprises and connects them to its corporate members. One of the country’s leading corporate membership organizations, NMSDC was chartered in 1972 to provide increased procurement and business opportunities for minority businesses of all sizes. The NMSDC Network includes a national office in New York and 24 affiliate councils across the country. There are 1,750 corporate members throughout the network, including America’s top publicly-owned, privately-owned and foreign-owned companies as well as universities, hospitals and other buying institutions. The affiliate councils certify and match nearly 12,000 minority- owned businesses with member corporations that want to purchase their products, services and solutions.

By joining hundreds of NMSDC corporate members, SDI becomes an integral part of shaping the corporate supplier landscape. “Our MBE designation offers mutually beneficial partnership opportunities, especially as the role of IT and physical security technology continues to expand in related service industries like the construction sector,” states Jack Hartman, SDI’s President and Chief Operating Officer. “We look forward to making a significant, positive impact on achieving greater inclusion and continuing to mentor fellow MBE partners to further develop the overall minority business community.”
