Washington, D.C. September 28, 2018 – SRB Communications won two top honors at the Capital Region Minority Supplier Development Council’s (CRMSDC) 37th annual Leaders and Legends Awards.

The boutique multicultural advertising and marketing agency, which has headquarters in Washington, D.C., won the top honor, Supplier of the Year, in the $1 million to $10 million in revenues category. SRB Communications was nominated by Pepco Holdings, an Exelon company, one of its Fortune 100 corporate clients.

The agency was also honored as one of the region’s top 100 minority businesses in the Mid- Atlantic region.

The annual awards event, held Sept. 25 at MGM National Harbor, recognizes minority entrepreneurs who have excelled in providing quality services and products to major corporations in the Mid-Atlantic region that have a strong commitment to supplier diversity.

SRB Communications has worked with Pepco since 1996. Currently, the agency has two multi- year contracts with the utility – one as the multicultural agency of record, and the second to provide communications and community outreach work for a multi-year infrastructure project that will modernize the energy grid in the District of Columbia and state of Maryland.

SRB Communications’ founder and CEO, Dr. Sheila Brooks, created a joint venture with two other minority, women-owned businesses for the infrastructure contract, a testament to her unwavering commitment to working with minority and women businesses.

“As an entrepreneur it is more than my duty, it’s my passion to strengthen the MBE community,” she said. “CRMSDC has been an amazing resource and influence in my life. I am elated to have been selected, as not only a Supplier of the Year, but a Top 100 MBE® in the Mid-Atlantic region. I also want to congratulate all of the other award winners, as well as the nominees in my Supplier of the Year category, HIC Energy Partners, LLC and nTech Solutions, Inc! It’s so important that we continue to break barriers and create wealth in our region and the nation.”
