WCG President & CEO Named Virginia Minority Supplier Development Council's Entrepreneur of the Year
Moses Foster, West Cary Group President & CEO, has been named Entrepreneur of the Year by the Virginia Minority Supplier Development Council (VMSDC). He accepted the award at the 28th Minority Business Enterprise Input Committee Gold Star Awards celebration held at The Jefferson Hotel in Richmond, Virginia, Dec. 8, 2011.
“I am thrilled to receive this honor,” says Moses. “At WCG, we believe diversity fuels creativity and produces consistently superior results. It’s exciting to see our tenet validated.”
Entrepreneur of the Year is presented to the leader of a VMSDC-certified minority-owned business that provides superior products or services to clients, drives an increase in both number of employees and revenue and demonstrates the capability for continued growth. Candidates are also evaluated based on their business relationships with other minority business entrepreneurs and their community involvement.
The VMSDC comprises 275 minority business enterprises (MBEs) and 103 corporate members, including MWV, Capital One, Genworth Financial, Owens & Minor and Dominion Resources. All five are West Cary Group clients.
During his acceptance speech, Moses made sure to mention WCG’s conceptual team and proprietary Rhythm team, whose constant creative efforts he attributes to the win.
“To me, one of the most significant criteria for this award is demonstrating the capacity for growth,” says Erica Billie, Supplier Diversity Manager at Capital One and nominator of Moses Foster. “West Cary Group is perfectly positioned to deliver impactful integrated marketing solutions, especially in digital channels like social media, mobile and Web. I have no doubt Moses and his team will go on to even greater success.”
