Supplier Diversity Programs are important because they create opportunities for capable companies – small, new and minority-owned – to participate in competing for work in an environment of established relationships. Marand Builders 5 years ago was a 2nd tier sub-contractor working in the construction of new stores for the bank. With the encouragement of Corporate Supplier Diversity and the opportunities created by the Corporate Properties Group, we have moved to a 1st tier general contractor, grown from 3 employees to 18 employees and have successfully completed 18 branches year to date in North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia.”

The opportunity to create a business relationship with Wells Fargo not only speaks to their commitment to qualified women and minority owned businesses, but that they are committed to forming a long term partnership with these businesses. We have enjoyed our relationship and the positive work opportunity. Our maintenance services program has allowed Wells Fargo to not only raise the level of quality in all their branches that we service, but to see cost containment across their branch portfolio. We are proud to be a service partner of Well Fargo.”
