President and CEO
PRWT Services, Inc., which handles complex compliance-driven transactions in highly regulated industries, started with a single local contract in 1988. Today, PRWT is a national firm with multiple contracts and affiliates. Most recently, president and CEO Malik Majeed reports, the company was selected along with its longtime partner ACS/Xerox by the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority (SEPTA) board to develop, install and support a new payment technologies system. “Our selection by SEPTA to be a part of the ACS/Xerox team is a testament to the capabilities we’ve developed over the years, as well as the quality of our work,” says Majeed. “It also allows us to continue to help grow and develop other disadvantaged businesses that we have selected to partner with us as part of the engagement.”
Quick Tip: “You are only as good as your most difficult client perceives you to be.”
As a successful minority-owned business, PRWT makes every effort to mentor other diverse firms, and to provide those firms with the support and opportunities to grow and overcome challenges. In fact, the company was originally founded with a focus on providing employment to disenfranchised individuals. That’s why, in addition to its mentorship, PRWT makes a point of purchasing products and services from other diverse companies when possible.
