The Northern Ohio Minority Business Council became an ANEO partner today after a unanimous vote of its board, which represents corporate and MBE (minority business enterprise) leaders from Northern Ohio (39 counties North of Columbus). NOMBC has a strong 20-year history of engaging in economic development in the Northern Ohio region by supporting the growth of MBE firms of all sizes and the connection between MBEs and corporate procurement departments. NOMBC is the local affiliate of the National Minority Supplier Diversity Council, the country’s premier organization for corporations and MBEs on supplier diversity. Through its affiliation with NMSDC, NOMBC certifies our local MBEs with the preferred minority business certification that is recognized nation-wide by our leading companies (Ford, Home Depot, KeyBank, WalMart, etc).
NOMBC staff and a few board members are preparing to leave for Las Vegas to attend the NMSDC convention where they, in partnership with TeamNEO, will be promoting Cleveland Plus to MBEs across the country – recommending Northeast Ohio as a welcome place for business expansion. NOMBC joins ANEO’s growing number of partners promoting regional economic competitiveness.
