DALLAS (October 2, 2018) The DFW Chapter of The National Association of Minority Contractors (NAMC) has announced the selection of Sean Smith, Partners First Program Manager, to their Board of Directors. NAMC is the oldest minority construction trade association in the United States with over 50 Hall of Fame members and Legacy Builders and an annual project capacity of over one billion dollars nationally. Through a network of local chapters and in collaboration with strategic and corporate partnerships, NAMC assists members with building capacity by providing access to opportunity, advocacy, and contractor development training.
“We truly acknowledge Sean’s commitment to the NAMC-DFW Chapter through his volunteerism and commitment to working with the Membership Committee,” said Pam Ervin-Davis, NAMC-DFW Board Chair. “Sean brings all the attributes of a committed member that is willing to assist our chapter’s growth and that is why we are so please to have him on our Board.”
Sean Smith oversees diversity, community engagement and safety initiatives at The Crowther Group under the umbrella of their Partners First Program. The firm believes that diversity and inclusion at all levels works best when those involved develop trust–and to do so, direct engagement is mandatory. Safety is no different—to ensure safety remains the highest priority, it must be part of the firm’s culture, embedded in the firm’s DNA. Sean has invested in the development of his talents, sought out mentorship, and acquired credentials critical to the fulfillment of his role. As a result, he has dedicated countless hours of time engaging with the communities his work affects.
“I am so proud of Sean’s commitment to his professional growth and this appointment to the NAMC Board. Sean is a great ambassador in our efforts to help our partners and employees while deepening the overall understanding of true diversity and inclusion,” said Thomas Crowther, CEO/Managing Partner at the Crowther Group. “Sean’s involvement contributes to the success of the clients we serve and ultimately provides us all with focus and purpose.”
