ASW CEO André Thornton is featured in IWLA's inaugural Inclusion & Diversity Council Newsletter. The article highlights Thornton's transition from an All-Star MLB career to becoming a successful entrepreneur.
Thornton underscores ASW's commitment to diversity and inclusion and discusses the business case for D&I initiatives. He also clears up misconceptions some may have about minority-owned businesses.
“Some people hear terms like ‘diverse supplier’ or ‘minority-owned business’ and think of small, under-resourced companies with very limited capacities and inferior products, unable to handle large contracts with big corporations,” Thornton says. “We dispel those kind of myths every day with our level of output, superior service, and quality products.”
