Twyla Garrett Of Baltimore Took IME To The Heights Of Success In Few Years
Twyla Garrett of Baltimore is a rising entrepreneur with extraordinary professional experience of flourishing businesses. Her indomitable spirit has always driven business growth. After having a tough childhood, she challenged stereotypical thinking and entered a male-dominated field i.e. accounting.
For nine years, she served as the federal employee as deputy controller for the Naval Depot and as foreign military sales manager for Space and Naval Warfare System Command. Then, she quit her job and invested $500 in her own venture and got her first contract immediately.
In the year 2000, Twyla Garrett of Baltimore founded Investment Management Enterprise (IME), Inc. IME is a woman- and minority- owned firm works with government agencies, commercial business and private sector organizations across the nation to sustain the success of their clients.
This firm specializes in Homeland Security & Emergency Preparedness, Management Consulting Services, Life Cycle Acquisition Support, Information Technology (IT) Support Services, Cyber Security & Computer Forensics, and Construction Program Management.
IME was profitable from the day it commenced. Twyla Garret and her team collaborate with clients on a personal level and understand their requirements. For example, they help agencies identify overlooked threats, prioritize them and devise practical mitigation. Their team also help agencies which need acquisition support to match the requirements of deliverables perfectly by pinpointing the real end users, discovering gaps in the documentation, automating processes and more.
Now, she is finally ready to make a limited number of shares of IME available to motivated private equity investors. On this, she says, “We know our industry and the potential it offers,” she says. “We are looking for investors who are ready to grow.”
