MIAMI, FL, UNITED STATES, January 12, 2023/ EINPresswire.com / -- Dr. Rafael Marrero, a highly regarded economist, Amazon best-selling author, and business leader is proud to announce the launching of Government Procurement Solutions (GPS), a sister company headed by his senior analyst, Irene Morales, under an official mentor-protégé partnership with Rafael Marrero & Company.
With Dr. Marrero’s support and mentorship, Morales’ firm will specialize in small business certifications (federal government, state, county and city); industry and private-sector certifications (Fortune 1000); supplier management qualification processes (PICS®, Veriforce®, AVETTA®); registration on SAM.gov, Grants.gov and the DLA Internet Bid Board System (DIBBS); and the formation —from start to finish— of new business entities and nonprofit organizations.
“Under this mentor-protégé relationship, we have sponsored Irene so that she can continue her professional development and education,” said Dr. Marrero, who described the dynamic business leader as “very eager to continue our business relationship through her new firm.”
Dr. Marrero, an expert in federal contracting, added that he is proud to support and recommend GPS, along with Morales and her team of paperwork ninjas. “Under this new strategic partnership,” he said, “the small and medium-sized businesses we advise will continue to enjoy the same quality service and the same level of professionalism under the leadership of Irene and her dedicated team of professionals.”
Dr. Marrero, who is also the author of “La salsa secreta del Tío Sam,” said, “Rafael Marrero & Company is growing and will now focus on providing branding, marketing, and training services of the highest caliber to government and private-sector contractors. We know our clients seeking certifications and recertifications will be in the best of hands.”
Irene Morales, meanwhile, says she never expected to start her own business. As an immigrant, she felt this was an unimaginable dream. But in working as an analyst for Rafael Marrero & Company and becoming an expert in federal contracting, she not only gained knowledge of the field, but she also drew inspiration along the way.
“More than a mentor, Dr. Marrero is a great inspiration to me. He —like myself— also served America. And he is now a great business leader with a patriotic mission at the heart of everything he does. He was the one who made it possible for me to start this company. He supported me every step of the way. I could not be prouder or more honored to have him as my official mentor. With him at my side, I know that my company and my clients’ enterprises will succeed,” said the newly minted business leader.
Morales concluded: “Partnering with Rafael Marrero & Company translates to years of experience and success that will benefit my clients. With this strategic partnership, I’ll be able to help them with certifications and paperwork [for various processes], as well as with the services offered by Rafael Marrero & Company. Since we also offer startup services, partnering with a company that specializes in branding and federal government marketing will be highly valuable to our clients.”
