Ken Coleman, Saama Chairman, Receives Spirit of Excellence Award from Black Chamber of Commerce at Sold-out Event

Saama’s own Ken Coleman, Chairman, recently received the first ever, prestigious Spirit of Excellence Award from the Black Chamber of Commerce. In this video, he explains how he rose above modest beginnings and discrimination to achieve success. He also discusses his focus on helping facilitate a network of African Americans in technology and how he would help solve the diversity problem.

Ken thanks the Black Chamber of Commerce for this award and its importance to the community in this video.

“I don’t think diversity should be a deficit model. It’s an opportunity model. If I know something you don’t know about the marketplace because of my staff, I will beat you. And that’s something every company should be concerned about.” –Ken Coleman
