The Leadership Awards honors dynamic corporate executives and minority business owners for their outstanding accomplishments.
VDart Inc., one of the fastest growing Digital Staffing & Solutions firms in the US, received the Minority Business Enterprise (MBE) of the Year Award from the National Minority Supplier Development Council (NMSDC) during its 2019 Leadership Awards event held on May 16th.
The black-tie gala event was attended by major global corporations, minority business enterprises, and the VDart leadership, to celebrate and honor minority business visionaries who have made the biggest impact in growing and sustaining minority businesses over the past year.
The MBE of the Year Award is presented to the owner of an NMSDC-certified minority business enterprise who has been actively engaged within the NMSDC network for a minimum of two years. The up and coming or seasoned recipient demonstrates exceptional leadership, is paving the way for other MBEs and is fully committed to minority supplier development and supporting the NMSDC network.
“This is a dream come true and I’m humbled to be recognized for such a prestigious award,” said Sidd, President & CEO of VDart Inc. “I’d like to thank our mentors Accenture, Delta Airlines, GMPC – Georgia Mentor-Protege Connection in helping us on this journey, and I’d also like to thank the Kellogg School of Management’s Advanced Management Education Program and Tuck School of Business’ Building Minority Business to scale and achieve our goals of creating success, wealth, and a better quality of life for everyone we have the opportunity to work with.”
Today VDart has operations in 8 countries, 2500 plus employees globally (53% women and 38% 1st generation learners), and has been consecutively ranked in the Inc. 5000 list eight times as one of the fastest growing privately held companies in the United States.
Through several NMSDC/GMSDC sponsored mentoring programs, Sidd instilled a strong organizational learning culture, and diversified business lines to include product development and consulting solutions, in industry-leading blockchain, IoT, and business process management technologies.
Other awards won by VDart include the 2018 GMSDC Eagle Award, 2 consecutive years winning the GMSDC MBE Advocate of the Year (2017 & 2018), the prestigious NMSDC Supplier of the Year Award Class IV (2017), and 6 consecutive years recognized as a top place to work.
Outside of VDart, Sidd is on the Board of Directors for the Georgia Education Foundation helping advance creative solutions to ensure equity and excellence in education for low-income students and students of color in the South.
