Ms Perez-Fowlers’ first project will be to work with MSA leadership to establish appropriate goals for MSA procurements as well as monitoring and reporting compliance. “Having Carmina in this role is a win for the agency and those we do business with,” said Jocelyn Grogan-Jones, Director of Human Resources for MSA. “Her vast experience in procurement and championing of diversity and inclusion issues makes this an ideal assignment for her. We are excited about the work she will do as the new MBE Liaison,” she added.
