David Brown

Vice President Global Fulfillment & Logistics
Dell Inc.

"Dell always looks for innovative ways to support business growth in countries where we have operations and customers and China is one of our fastest growing markets. I am proud of chairing the NMSDC China Committee and spearheading the historical effort of creating China’s first national supplier diversity program. Through our partnership with NMSDC and MSD China we hope to help drive economic gains in the Chinese minority community and ignite a growth engine for U.S. minority-owned firms that want to grow overseas. I invited NMSDC corporate members to join us and become a part of the history making process. ”

Ying McGuire

Senior Manager of Global Supplier Diversity
Dell Inc.

"This past year, we transformed supplier diversity from a domestic initiative into a global strategy at Dell to empower diverse business entrepreneurs at home and overseas to accomplish their goals. My background as an entrepreneur and a native Chinese drives my enthusiasm to help create MSD China and to drive economic development of minority regions and contribute to economic gap closure in China. This effort will create lasting value for the corporations involved by positioning them as the social responsibility leaders, building brand affinity, and allowing them to have the accelerated growth in the largest emerging market in the world.”

Michael Robinson   
 
Program Director, Global Supplier Diversity Integrated Supply Chain
IBM Corporation
                                                    
"IBM has a heritage of Supplier Diversity dating back to 1968 and it was in 2003 that our Supplier Diversity program was expanded globally. We understand that Supplier Diversity should not be a unique American phenomenon because there are diverse constituencies that have been left out of the economic mainstream worldwide. If a supplier has a product/service that we procure and can provide value-add within IBM's Supply Chain, we want to utilize them regardless of sex, ethnicity, race, creed, color, etc. The key point is finding those suppliers who are innovative, responsive, with the technological infrastructure who can become our partners. To this effort we salute the NMSDC and MSD-China for assisting us in identifying ethnic minority suppliers in the important Chinese marketplace."

"China is one of Boeing’s largest and fastest-growing markets and a long-standing business partner with us. In China, as in other markets where we do business, Boeing takes a strong interest in encouraging the widest possible participation in economic development opportunities. MSD China and the NMSDC are important partners for Boeing as we seek suppliers of all sizes that can bring us innovative products and services to enhance our business. That broad and inclusive supply base offers a more diverse range of talents and skills to help build and sustain innovation. In doing so, it creates broader prosperity that is enjoyed throughout the larger community. Boeing’s success is ultimately built on vibrant and prosperous communities and the diverse mixture of large and small businesses that sustain them. We cannot afford to leave any group behind."

Jackie La Joie

Associate Director, Supplier Diversity
Merck & Co., Inc.

“Our company recognized many years ago that diversity brings a clear competitive advantage; it not only makes good business sense, it helps us sustain our momentum and allows us to continue to grow as a company. Part of our overall diversity strategy is our commitment to the inclusion of minority-owned businesses. These providers of goods and services are key to our success in the marketplace and our commitment to inclusion is a business imperative. Merck is an active national member of National Minority Supplier Development Council in the U.S. and in the past 2 years we have expanded our Supplier Diversity program to include the U.K. and Canada.   Most recently we became a proud member of Minority Supplier Development – China and join with them in their endeavor to create a platform for communications and business exchange between minority suppliers and corporations.  We believe this is a unique opportunity to partner with an organization to increase minority business development and create wealth and economic health in underutilized business communities. We would like to thank Minority Supplier Development – China and the National Minority Supplier Development Council for the opportunity to participate in this historical event and look forward to a successful future.”
