Wynn Reaches Out to Local Chambers of Commerce & State Organizations

Wynn Resorts has aligned with 12 Chambers of Commerce and several diverse business advocacy groups to identify qualified Massachusetts minority-, women-, and veteran-owned consulting firms and contractors to work on the upcoming infrastructure design and construction of the $1.7 billion, five-star Wynn Resort in Everett.

With several significant requests for proposals and bids soon to be issued for off-site roadway improvements, environmental cleanup and site preparation, Wynn helped to identify qualified contractors in collaboration with Chambers of Commerce in Greater Boston, Everett, Malden, Medford, Chelsea, Charlestown, North End, Somerville, Cambridge, Lynn, Melrose and East Boston. Wynn also teamed with the State Supplier Diversity Office, Massachusetts Minority Contractors Association, Center for Women and Enterprise, Greater New England Minority Supplier Diversity Office and the Hispanic American Institute to promote minority, women, and veteran business participation.

“More than just taking down names of interested companies, the Wynn team spoke with more than 30 representatives from 20 different businesses to provide a detailed project overview and scope of work,” said Robert DeSalvio, President of Wynn Everett. “Just as they learned about Wynn, we also learned more about each business and their qualifications. Overall, we’re pleased with the outcome and will continue our commitment to include diverse businesses in all phases of construction and operations at Wynn Everett.”
