“The Formula 1 project represents a tremendous economic development opportunity for our city and I am excited to work with this team who is clearly committed to diversity in the construction of these world-class facilities,” said Ms. Haynes.

 

Developers will work closely with Ms. Haynes, HEW managing partner, who will be responsible for developing the MBE/WBE plan for the multipurpose venue that is scheduled to host its first event in 2012. In addition to assisting with outreach to local firms and minority contractor associations, Ms. Haynes will assist in preparing MBE/WBE participation reports for the project and participate in meetings with City officials throughout the course of this project.
