Business Owner Goodwin Promises Best to Clients, Climbs Ladder of Success
By Dawn Campbell
As president and chief executive officer of Promise IT Solutions, Inc., Malcolm Goodwin is attracting more attention than he did as linebacker and co-captain of the 1992 Iowa State University football team when they beat Nebraska. Goodwin is featured in this week’s Des Moines Business Record as a business owner who understands his client’s needs and the information technology consulting industry.
Goodwin started his business in March 2007 out of his home and now boasts a revenue of a half million dollars. Revenue may increase in the future, but that is not what drives the passion for successful business deals; it’s “identically meeting” client’s needs. Servicing the customer and insuring they have the best customer service is a core value for Promise IT Solutions.
Serving others is deeply ingrained in Goodwin’s work ethic. Community service will be a requirement of all Promise IT Solutions employees. Goodwin personally serves on the board of directors for the Minority Enterprise Construction Council as well as Big Brothers Big Sisters. He currently holds the position of board president for both organizations.
The Business Record article describes Goodwin’s business plan for Promise IT Solutions and gives a brief glimpse at the business venture he is also working on at this time. The article can be reached at the Business Record.
You can personally hear Goodwin share his story of success at I’ll Make Me a World in Iowa. He is a panelist for the African American Business Association’s business seminar, which will be January 26 at the Polk County Convention Center. Presentation begins at 11:00 a.m.
