JMT Honored with Minority Business Council Award
November 21, 2012Location: Virginia Beach, Virginia
JMT was honored with the 2012 Outstanding "Diversity Champion"
Business award by the Minority Business Council of the City of
Virginia Beach, Virginia, on November 8, 2012. The award was
presented during the City Minority Business Council's 14th Annual
Conference and EXPO at the Virginia Beach Convention Center.
JMT was recognized for its exceptional service delivery and
corporate culture of providing business opportunities to minority
teaming partners. We were nominated by Delceno C. Miles,
president of The Miles Agency, who wrote:
"JMT has consistently proven their authentic commitment to
diversity contracting. I have worked with JMT for several
years now. They include my minority-owned firm not only in
their bids but the planning, strategy and implementation of their
approach. I'm TRULY a part of their team - not just a name on a
list. They have always stood behind their promises to utilize
my firm and I've never had any issues. What I appreciate most
is that they always ask me if I'd like to join their team in
business pursuits, they never make the assumption. When they
win the bid, they deliver on their [Woman, Service Disabled Veteran
and Minority Participation Plan]. They are the model that all
prime contractors should follow."
Business Council (MBC) serves as an advisory agency to the
Virginia Beach City Manager and the City Council with respect to

is: "To advance and facilitate an environment of business
opportunities, focusing on increasing expenditures to minority and

We are honored to receive the MBC's Outstanding Diversity
Champion award and look forward to continuing our strong
relationships with minority teaming partners in the service of our
