Another ‘Chat & Chew’ In the Books

With assistance from the URA’s MWBE Program Office, Turner Construction Company hosted a ‘Chat & Chew’ on June 4. The event was held at Turner’s office, located at 925 Liberty Avenue.


The ‘Chat & Chew’ presented ten MWBE firms with an opportunity to engage with Dexter Hendricks, Turner’s vice president, Community and Citizenship, and Abby Krehl, Turner’s interiors/SPD procurement manager. The URA was represented by Corey Derico, Lisa Moses and Emily Pontarelli.


Abby Krehl shared:
