Cartus appreciates the value MBE partners such as Mastech bring to our I.T. initiatives. Mastech has been a steadfast provider of the highest quality I.T. resources for Cartus since 1998. This recognition is well-deserved, and our team could not be more pleased for the Mastech team."

Cartus appreciates the importance of a diverse workforce population and of MBE suppliers and we highly value them as a strategic client. Mastech looks forward to providing Cartus with the I.T. talent to meet their business goals, and continuing our relationship for many years to come."

In accepting the award on behalf of the company, Christopher R. Evans, Director of Global Marketing and Diversity Client Relations commented, "We would like to express our gratitude to Tom Davis, Nancy Anderson-Smith, and the entire Cartus team for this nomination, and the CMSDC for the honor of this award. Through the Diversity Supplier Recruitment Program, Cartus provides a shining example to businesses and organizations everywhere of true commitment to, and partnership with, Minority Owned Business Enterprises, and sets clear expectations of excellence for the partners who serve them. Mastech is exceptionally proud to be recognized for the value our I.T. services have brought to Cartus."
