The Capital Region Minority Supplier Development Council (CRMSDC) named Montage Marketing Group a 2017 Top 100 MBE® winner. The award recognizes owners of minority business enterprises in Maryland, Virginia and the District of Columbia who have demonstrated exceptional entrepreneurial accomplishments, a high level of professionalism, and have made substantial contributions to their community.
The Top 100 MBE Awards® began in 2007 and evolved through a need to recognize and celebrate the creativity and innovation of regional MBEs who are role models and inspirations to the entire community.
This is the first year Montage has received the award. A marketing solutions company, Montage provides government and commercial clients with the opportunity to achieve increased results, engage audiences and create passionate advocates through experiential marketing. Montage’s agile workforce offers marketing communications, events, training, program management, mobile event teams, and brand experience services.
"As a business and as individuals, the Montage team is driven to do more for our clients and our communities," said Montage founder and CEO, Mercedita Roxas-Murray. "Being recognized as a Top 100 MBE® honors that commitment and acknowledges our success. We’re thrilled to receive the award, and congratulate all our fellow MBEs."
Last year, Montage was nominated and recognized by CRMSDC as a finalist for Supplier of the Year Class 1 award.
The Top 100 MBE Awards® will be presented at the CRMSDC’s 36th Annual Leaders and Legends Awards Ceremony, on November 2nd at the MGM National Harbor.
Sharon R. Pinder, CRMSDC’s president and CEO, commended this year’s winners: “Our board of directors and our members congratulate the 2017 Top 100 MBEs® on their stellar accomplishments.”
CRMSDC is celebrating its 45th anniversary as a not-for-profit economic development organization supporting growth in Maryland, the District of Columbia, and Northern Virginia through programs and services that help corporations enhance the diversity and innovation of their supply chains. CRMSDC connects corporate and government members to well established, certified minority-owned business enterprises.
This is accomplished through a rigorous process of certifying that MBE suppliers are at least 51% owned, controlled and operated by ethnic minorities; providing education and advice to certified businesses; and finally, creating strategic opportunities for corporate members and certified MBEs to connect for the purpose of doing business.
CRMSDC, established in 1972, is one of 23 regional affiliates of the National Minority Supplier Development Council, the only nationally recognized MBE certifying authority. CRMSDC is headquartered in Silver Spring Maryland.
