Congratulations to Robert L. Garcia, President & CEO of CCI Commercial Construction Incorporated. Robert was honored several times this year for his advancement of the Hispanic business owner in Michigan and his continual outreach to the Hispanic community. A special acknowledgment to Robert’s family for their continued support and love – without the support la familia, he’d be unable to do the great work in the community – thank you to his beautiful wife Gina and sons; Robert, Gary and Phillip.
As the leader of a Minority Business Enterprise, Robert has seen firsthand how important diversity is to his clients. “Over the years, we have been fortunate to gain a wide range of clientele that has been a force multiplier, not only to our organization, but to our customers,” he said. Staying on top of the quest for diversity is important to Robert. “It’s our job to identify ways to adapt to new hires rather than force them to adapt to us. To keep our competitive edge strong, we encourage communications all around. It’s not just the best and brightest individuals who we look for when recruiting for the organization, we look for professional candidates who can be molded to expand our company for the future,” Robert says. That means staying involved with other great minority companies, networking and establishing working relationships in the community. “Diversity is important, because products and services are being purchased by a diverse community, which is steadily growing nationwide. It’s important for our community, because what we do now will affect our community later.” Robert is very involved in the Hispanic business community and also serves on the board of the Michigan Hispanic Chamber of Commerce.
