Packers Mentor-Protégé Program Accepting Applicants

Posted Oct 1, 2013

Applications being accepted for program's fourth year

The Green Bay Packers Mentor-Protégé Program is seeking mentor and protégé applicants for its fourth year of partnerships to foster business growth, economic development and job creation in Brown County and the surrounding areas.

Protégé companies in the program will be matched with mentor companies that can provide technical, managerial, financial or other guidance to improve their competitive standing. The mentor-protégé relationship requires at least a 12-month commitment.

Five matched companies currently finishing their year in the program are Miron Construction, Neenah, and Current Electrical Services, Green Bay; RR Donnelley, De Pere, and Strength of the Hands, De Pere; Bay Towel, Green Bay, and Ascher's Janitorial Services, Abrams; The Boldt Company, Appleton, and Bonnie Kratz Photography, Luxemburg; and Integrys Energy Services, De Pere, and JT Engineering, Green Bay.

The program is administered by AFF Research LLC (AFFR). AFFR has consulted in the field of supplier diversity for 13 years, and has worked on the Lambeau Field redevelopment project and is working on the current Atrium renovation project. AFFR assists their clients in designing and implementing comprehensive supplier diversity program. They also provide guidance to entrepreneurs.

"We've been very pleased with the mentor-protégé program's growth over the past three years," said Anna Steinfest, President/CEO of AFF Research. "A number of local companies have come together to form lasting relationships that help improve business in Northeast Wisconsin. With the third season of the program currently underway, we're happy to begin accepting applications for yet another successful year of fostering business growth."

Questions and requests for protégé and mentor applications should be directed to AFFR at 920-884-5006 or via e-mail at aff@affresearch.com. Applications also can be submitted online at http://affresearch.com/index.htm.
