Congratulations to Alice Kennedy and Kennedy Management Resources, Inc., on being named the 2009 Minority Business of the Year by the Grand Rapids Area Chamber of Commerce.  Alice founded Kennedy Management Resources in 1997 to provide human resource services to small and medium businesses that do no have an HR department.  As an outgrowth of that work, Alice established Diversity Theater, which now has twelve actors who provide engaging and entertaining diversity training to companies throughout West Michigan, Detroit and Chicago. 

Alice is one of the founders and original leaders of the Multiracial Association of Professionals and still is a member of the MAP Council.  We at Warner have benefitted from her insights and her thought-provoking performances.

 Also recognized by the Chamber this year is Floriza Genautis, of Management Business Solutions as Minority Entrepreneur of the Year and Erhardt Construction, Inc., as Minority Business Advocate of the Year.  Congratulations to all three companies for their extraordinary accomplishments.
