http://nhsevidencetoolkit.net/fuhsentohwatae-sekaiya-kozu/article104319255/ Tony Thompon, president of http://disegnoworks.com/news/1652 Kwame Building Group (KWAME), has been paving the way for minorities and women in construction for decades.
A solid dose of business expertise, a generous amount of relationship building, heaping quantities of grit and a healthy measurement of self-awareness are ingredients in the recipe for success of minority business enterprises (MBEs) working in St. Louis’ construction industry.
MBE firms of all sizes and specialties are woven into the fabric of St. Louis’ built environment. While a sizable number of MBE firms got their start in connection with a major construction project, the genesis for others was a transition from the trades to the office. Still others found their path to MBE ownership via education, be it from the walls of the university or a one-on-one mentoring relationship. Many have built upon working relationships with larger first in the private sector, working on their projects.
Regardless of the avenue through which they traveled to launch an MBE firm, determination, hard work and extroversion equipped and motivated them to succeed.
Twice each year, Kwame Building Group CEO, Tony Thompson, shares his wisdom with Executive MBA students at St. Louis University. Tony shares candid reflections and lessons learned from his decades of experience working for Fortune 500 organizations, government entities and running a successful construction management firm.
Some of the key messages that impacted the students this semester were about breaking through barriers as an African American business owner, the importance of a ‘why’ in your business, management best practices, lessons for growing a business and the importance of giving back.
Students provided detailed feedback about how the presentation impacted them at this important stage in their careers.
More than 900,000 craft hours of work have been completed to date
