Collabera Chairman Hiten Patel Wins Coveted MBE Catalyst Award at NMSDC 2015 Leadership Awards
Each year the National Minority Supplier Diversity Council (NMSDC) chooses the winners of its Catalyst Awards to honor a select few members who have enacted real change and been a source of inspiration and growth for their respective companies. Collabera, one of the nation’s largest and fastest-growing IT staffing firms, is proud to announce that chairman Hiten Patel has been named a recipient of this year’s MBE Catalyst award for minority owned enterprises.
“I am honored to receive this award recognizing the success of Collabera and my involvement in furthering the minority business community,” Patel said. “Minority-owned businesses face many of the same challenges as non-minority-owned ones do, but we often must overcome additional obstacles. Working together to forge this strong collaboration for the betterment of our industries and diversity is good for us, it’s good for business and it’s good for our customers and employees.”
Collabera has found massive success placing top IT professionals with leading technology companies ever since Patel risked his life savings to take it over in 1991, and it is now one of the largest IT staffing firms in America.
According to the NMSDC, the MBE Catalyst award is presented to the owner of a minority-business enterprise (MBE) who has been actively engaged within the NMSDC network for five to 10 years. The recipient is a change agent who has demonstrated exceptional leadership in guiding their company to success, and shared their knowledge and wisdom with peers as a mentor. This individual has also contributed to the advancement of NMSDC’s mission through their active engagement at the affiliate level and throughout the NMSDC network.
