Profile Partners LLC Earns SBA HUBZone Certification

Certification offers new access and opportunities for Profile Partners and its clients

Baltimore, MD – Profile Partners LLC received its designation as a HUBZone-certified company by the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA). Founded in 2009, Profile Partners helps guide government agencies and non-profit organizations through transformation and growth initiatives.

A company can be designated HUBZone if its operations and 35% of its employees live in a Historically Underutilized Business Zone. The program is designed to stimulate economic grown in areas with low income, high poverty, or high unemployment. HUBZone companies are eligible for set-aside or sole-source government contracts.

“This certification gives Profile Partners an opportunity to streamline the process for its federal government clients to access our services more easily,” said Joan Michel, founder and managing partner of Profile Partners, “and it saves them time and money to use a simplified contracting mechanism while still accessing the expertise they need.”

Michel continued, “This designation also means that my company can participate in the economic development of communities across the U.S. that need more family-supporting employment opportunities. I’m excited to be part of this movement.”

Profile Partners provides the following services to its clients:

  • Strategy and planning
  • Process improvement
  • Training and leadership skills development
  • Meeting, event, and process facilitation
  • Event planning and management
  • Public outreach, marketing, and crisis communications
  • Organizational insight and diagnosis
  • Facilities and infrastructure planning
  • Creative services: print, web, video, social media

“We have a passion for helping leaders create great organizations that enable their employees to do their best work. That’s what Profile Partners is all about – we help government agencies improve their customers’ experience, collaborate across agencies, develop their people, and seize opportunities to innovate and grow,” said Michel. “This certification will help us streamline our internal contracting mechanisms so we can better focus on serving our clients.”
