“When I identified the need for a new direction in the existing system of minority business spending and questioned the existing practices. I knew better results could be achieved with new methods and a new strategy. I also knew the man for the job was Windell Paige.”
Florida Governor 1999-2007
“Mr. Paige has been the single-most influential force in our state for achieving dramatic improvements in business opportunities for small and minority-owned firms in a wide range of industries. His efforts have resulted in quantum leaps forward for the MBE community throughout the State of Florida.
He is exceptionally enthusiastic and successful at promoting a spirit of meaningful dialogue between all parties, which in turn encourages commercial advancement for minority and women-owned businesses.”
Robert Castro Jr. , President
American Data & Computer Products
“His experience guiding the fourth largest state in America’s supplier diversity program has given Windell some great in sight to our MBE’s challenges.
I would strongly recommend you consider Windell’s participation in your upcoming events as a keynote or plenary session speaker or as a workshop presenter. Those of you who know Windell are aware of his professionalism, his humorous delivery and his hands on experience which provides a real time connection with his audience.”
Beatrice Louissaint , President & CEO
Florida Regional Minority Business Council
“We are a shining example that the Governor’s vision of One Florida works and that equality and quality can co-exist. Rather than dwelling on divisive, quota-driven practices of the past. Windell Paige has developed a forward-thinking, collaborative approach that works for both vendors and state government spenders.”
