San Diego, California. August 6, 2019 – The 31st Annual Department of the Navy (DON) Gold Coast Small Business Procurement Conference, held 24-26 July 2019 in San Diego, California, featured Lisa E. Rosenthal, CEO of Mayvin, Inc. (Mayvin), in two panel events. Sponsored by the National Defense Industrial Association (NDIA), this annual forum enables key Navy and Marine Corps leaders to connect with and assist large and small businesses in supporting the warfighter’s needs. Lisa shared her experiences and best practices as the CEO of a successful Woman-Owned Small Business (WOSB) during her participation in Women in Defense discussion panels sponsored by Bank of America Merrill Lynch.

“I was honored to have the opportunity to participate in this year’s event and continue to promote women-owned small businesses,” said Rosenthal. Being firmly committed to overcoming gender stereotypes in the defense industry, Rosenthal’s unique background made her a powerful addition to the elite group of panelists representing successful female leadership within the contractor industry. “I am very passionate about supporting the growth of WOSBs, and I fully believe this event will reinforce the DON commitment to leverage the capabilities of small business to support future defense and national security requirements.”
