Trusted B2G Association Providing Key Support to Government Contracting Stakeholders Appoints New Advisor

Founded in 2004, The American Small Business Coalition, regarded by many in the government contracting community as an effective and reliable resource for developing information and relationships, welcomes David Simon of Mission Essential Personnel to its advisory board.

Columbia, MD January 21, 2010 - - Those who coined the saying "change is constant” likely did not envision changes U.S. companies would experience due to epidemic-like financial collapses. Circumstances created because of the economic downturn have compelled many organizations to expand their markets and identify new streams of constant revenue. For businesses setting their sights on Government Contracting opportunities, The American Small Business Coalition (The ASBC) fills the role of advisor, connector, facilitator and promoter.

Since inception, The American Small Business Coalition has leveraged its corps of trusted advisors to ensure its program offerings are relevant and effective for its members. In this spirit, the organization has selected David Simon, Director of Intelligence and Defense Programs for Mission Essential Personnel (MEP), to serve as a member of The ASBC Advisory Board.

"David’s in-the-trenches knowledge of doing business in this sector makes him a great addition to our advisory board and complements our strategy for providing relevant and timely content for identifying and capturing business opportunities,” says Guy Timberlake, Chief Visionary and Chief Executive Officer of The American Small Business Coalition.

A former Army Intelligence Officer with more than 15 years of defense and intelligence experience, David’s background includes leading strategic growth for several small businesses that, according to plan, went on to be acquired. He continues that success at MEP by delivering key contract wins and generating revenue through an effective business development strategy.

"David has already demonstrated a unique interest in the success of The American Small Business Coalition and our Members,” says President and Co-Founder Margaret Timberlake. "Guy and I look forward to the contributions David will make in support of The ASBC’s growth strategies.”
