September 10, 2018, Detroit, MI— The Michigan Minority Supplier Development Council (MMSDC) has announced Joe Anderson, Jethro Joseph, and Carmen Muñoz as their 2018 inductees for the Michigan Minority Business Hall of Fame. This prestigious honor recognizes those with a positive transformational impact on Michigan’s minority businesses, including government and community leaders as well as iconic MBEs and corporate leaders. The induction will take place at the MMSDC’s 2018 ACE Awards program on Tuesday, October 9, 2018, at Novi Suburban Collection Showplace.
“It gives me great pleasure to induct a dynamic group of minority business icons into the Michigan Minority Business Hall of Fame,” said Michelle Sourie Robinson, MMSDC President/CEO. “We celebrate the many hidden figures driving economic development in Michigan and beyond. In their own way, each of this year’s honorees has made a significant economic impact on Michigan and beyond. Carmen Muñoz provided leadership in the Hispanic community at a time when women entrepreneurs were rare in her industry. Joe Anderson has built a legacy of mentorship by empowering minority entrepreneurs through professional and financial support. Lastly, Jethro Joseph assisted numerous minority business owners by helping them get their start through his work at FCA. I have tremendous respect for all of our honorees and can’t wait to join the chorus to thank them for the indelible imprint they’ve made.”
The MMSDC ACE Awards is one of the most significant minority business events that take place annually in Michigan where the top leaders, executives, and visionaries in the region come together to celebrate individuals and companies who are championing minority supplier development.
As a key driver of minority business development for over 40 years in Michigan, MMSDC is the home of the Michigan Minority Business Hall of Fame. This award honors men and women who have made significant contributions to minority supplier development in the state of Michigan.
