JOINT ENTERPRISE TECHNOLOGIES MAKES TBBJ’S TOP 50 LIST
Company Listed Among Top Minority-Owned Businesses
TAMPA, FLORIDA — The Tampa Bay Business Journal has published their list of the Top 50 Minority-Owned Businesses, with Joint Enterprise Technologies proudly ranking at #43. The list is according to 2014 revenue. The companies on the list are at least 51% minority-owned and headquartered in the Tampa Bay area. This is JET’s first time on the list, which is published annually.
“I am very proud of Joint Enterprise Technologies and achieving this placement on the Tampa Bay Business Journal’s list,” said JET President Richie Harris. “There are some very notable names in this ranking and I’m grateful that we have been included. I’m happy for our team to get this kind of recognition.”
Joint Enterprise Technologies has been providing technology solutions in the Tampa Bay area since 2008, with an emphasis on dedication to customer service. Owners Richie Harris and Chuck Middleton bring superior integrity and over 50 years of combined experience in the Defense sector of the information technology industry, serving in the military, and now as federal contractors. JET offers a range of services, providing information technology consulting, products, and services to federal, state, and local governments, as well as small- and medium-size businesses and non-profit organizations.
Being a service-disabled, veteran-owned (and 100% minority-owned) small business (SDVOSB/MBE), Mr. Harris points out that the company proudly supports the Department of Defense and current service members with that same superior integrity.
He added that, “We’re a proud community partner. Yes, revenue is certainly important and it’s how you get included on a list like this (from TBBJ), but participation in the likes of the Armed Forces Communications and Electronics Association, National Defense Industrial Association, Greater Riverview Chamber of Commerce, and the Fishhawk chapter of Christian Business Connections are very meaningful in the way Joint Enterprise Technologies is run.”
Mr. Harris also noted that, “There are various ways to contribute to the community, including not withholding knowledge and information just to make a sale. That’s why we frequently post helpful technology tips and community content on social media.”
