Wow! A wonderful testimonial about PTAC services. Thank you to veteran, Ron Mitchell.

Hello Congressman Anthony Brown,

I am writing to wish you and your family a wonderful holiday season. My name is Ron Mitchell JD, MBA I am a veteran, author and business owner. I started my company of BEM Enterprises LLC to help ignite the fire within and drive the human spirit. Recently I have been utilizing the awesome services at the Maryland Procurement Technical Assistance Center. Needless to say, prior to working with Ms. Mary Lee Kolich a PTAC Procurement Specialist and VA Certified Counselor, it was a challenge to understand the requirements of government contracting along with the know how to successfully perform federal, state, and local government contracts. Working with Mary Lee Kolich has been very inspiring and a wonderful experience. Thank you for your support and funding for this program. - Ignite Coach Ron Mitchell JD, MBA
