With a proven HR background, Adrienne Trimble is equipped to build and lead our efforts with a strong and effective national staff. As a former corporate Supplier Diversity leader, she understands the corporate drivers for our organization and will bring invaluable insight to help MBEs grow.

For a 3-year term, Trimble will drive all aspects of the organization, including but not limited to, revamping processes, designing new programming, overseeing all operational functions, selecting and leading a strong national staff, and working with the board and affiliates to create and implement strategy.
