FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Parker, CO – Alex Cates of OMS Group, LLC. has been elected to serve on the Board of Trustees for the National Small Business Association (NSBA) for 2023. NSBA is the nation’s oldest small-business advocacy organization and operates on a staunchly nonpartisan basis. Mr. Cates, a recognized leader in the small-business community brings his talents to the national level in promoting the interests of small business to policymakers in Washington, D.C.
“I look forward to working with NSBA in the coming years to ensure small business has a seat at the table,” stated Cates, “It is critical that Congress and the administration do everything in their power to support small businesses, who collectively employ nearly 50 percent of our nation’s workforce. Small business is the backbone of the economy, and we need to have appropriate representation.”
Cates is a Texas A&M College of Architecture graduate who started out in the architectural design space. He moved into the environmental contracting field in 2004 and spent nine years in the professional services industry as a senior partner supporting national and multinational industrial clients as a global service and area operations leader. He and his business partner launched OMS in 2020 to provide clients with environmental, health, and safety services (EH&S). Within the EH&S space, Orion also provides capital project delivery services.
Cates has been active with NSBA for several years and in his current capacity has represented small business issues in Colorado, California, Idaho, and Texas. In addition to the leadership role with NSBA, Cates is active in various local and regional organizations and has been an outspoken advocate for small-business issues with his elected officials.
“I am energized by the new leadership here at NSBA, and I am certain Alex will play a key role in helping take our efforts to the next level,” stated NSBA President and CEO Todd McCracken. “Alex’s dedication, pragmatism and drive are a perfect fit for our leadership team as we push policymakers to seek and support pro-small-business policies.”
