The Capital Region MSDC awards
MBB Affiliates, LLC as one of the best in the region!
Washington, D.C. – The Capital Region Minority Supplier Development Council (CRMSDC) announced that MBB Affiliates, LLC (MBB) and its Principal, Ashley Atwater, were named as a 2019 Top 100 MBE® winner.
This prestigious award recognizes owners of minority business enterprises in Maryland, Virginia, and the District of Columbia who have demonstrated exceptional entrepreneurial accomplishments, a high level of professionalism, and have made substantial contributions to their community.
Ashley Atwater was driven to create a business that would provide an opportunity for other women and people of color in an industry she loves. Ashley founded MBB Affiliates in 2013, a best-in-class property management and facility management firm specializing in commercial and residential properties.
MBB Affiliates has expanded its footprint by building relationships in the public and private sectors and offering superior management, operational, engineering, and accounting services to clients such as the District of Columbia, the Federal Government, real estate developers, and private owners. The current portfolio consists of office, retail, multifamily, and educational campuses throughout the region, including the historic Dorothy Height Building on Pennsylvania Avenue and the recently renovated and famed Duke Ellington School of the Arts.
I am honored and excited to be a part of such an outstanding group of awardees. I started this company to provide an opportunity for the many talented and gifted people who look like me in an industry that has not always embraced us; and to create a work environment where we can grow, learn and realize our potential. I am so appreciative to our entire staff, clients, and partners for their hard work and commitment to MBB’s success and to my friends and family for their love and support along the way.
— Ashley Atwater, MBB Principal
