Quintal will receive the award during the MED Week Award Luncheon Thursday at the Greensboro Coliseum Special Events Center. The award and luncheon are part of the City of Greensboro’s first Minority Enterprise Development Week.

“It’s an honor to be recognized for the work my colleagues and I do in encouraging minority- and women-owned businesses to compete for business opportunities from the UNCG,” Quintal said.

The purpose of the MED Week is to provide business development opportunities to companies and celebrate the accomplishments of minority and women businesses in the past year.

Quintal and the other HUB Advocate Award winners were selected by the Greensboro MED Week Committee, which is made up of representatives from the City of Greensboro, Guilford County, North Carolina A&T State University, UNCG, Guilford Tech and Guilford County Schools.

Other winners of the award are Andrew Perkins of NC A&T, Deena Hayes-Greene of Guilford County Schools and Steve Drew of the City of Greensboro.
