The event will was held at its facility, located near Denver International Airport, November 19th from 3 pm to 7pm.
At the Urban Exchange and Open House, attendees were able to network with fellow minority-owned businesses, MPMSDC and Ricoh; hear from leadership at ULS and MPMSDC on trends in the diversity marketplace; participate in one-on-one interviews with leadership and tour ULS’ new state-of-the-art facility. ULS, MPMSDC and Ricoh’s production print team developed this agenda to specifically address the challenges minority-owned businesses face and to share best practices and services to help them achieve further success in their respected industries.
“ULS’ success in the diversity channel can be attributed to working with local councils, such as the MPMSDC to help boost diversity awareness and drive new business opportunities,” said Chuck Sanders, Founder and CEO of ULS. “Stan Sena, CEO, and Belinda Hooks, President, of the MPMSDC work extremely hard to help ULS remain the thriving company it is today, reaching its diversity goal and ultimately growing our customer base.”
In previous years, ULS, a Corporate Plus Member® of the MPMSDC, spent more than 21 million with diverse suppliers and takes great pride in being listed as No. 23 in Black Enterprise Magazine’s Top 100 list as one of the fastest-growing, minority-owned companies in America. As ULS grows and becomes more profitable, it will continue to be committed to increasing spending with diverse suppliers annually. As other minority-owned businesses become profitable, they too are able to employ more people in the communities where they live and work.
ULS was listed as one of the top employers in Broomfield and No. 8 in Inc. Hire Power Awards as one of the top job creators in the U.S. ULS is offering outsource solutions for our lending partners during the cyclical changes within the multi-trillion dollar mortgage and equity lending market.
