All Source Global Management, LLC
AllSource Global Management, LLC was founded in 2005 by Cecilia Mata. Early on, Mata recognized that she needed guidance on the opportunities available in government contracting for a minority woman. She sought the assistance of the SBA and soon connected with a counselor at the Small Business Development Center (SBDC) in Tucson Arizona.
Mata says, “I was able to leverage the experience of the Small Business Development Center, and it did not cost me anything. Normally, companies charge money for business information and guidance, but with the SBDC I received excellent information, invaluable advice and service every step of the way.”
Marta worked with one of SBA’s 8(a) specialists and developed a business plan to certify her company as an 8(a) business. Her hard work paid off in November, 2006, with a contract to provide professional services at Fort Bliss, Texas.
In 2010, just five years after its founding, AGM had a banner year. Revenues exceeded $6 million and employment grew to more than 500 staff members. The company started with less than 5 employees in a single location. Today, the company has nearly 550 employees at eleven different locations in 6 states.
Unwilling to miss opportunities for growth and experience, Mata recently entered into a Joint Venture with a graduate of the 8(a) program to conduct business at Davis Dam in Arizona. As a result, the company is venturing into yet another new area of business.
“Today,” as Mata puts it, “we are very sophisticated, financially sound, and an extremely flexible company.”
