Meet Evon Roquemore
Organization: Brightside Clinic
Do you work on any BRAC working groups, committees or councils? If so, please elaborate.
I work closely with Investor Relations, and I am on the Campaign Steering Committee.
What does your company/organization do?
Brightside Clinic is an outpatient mental health system and healthcare technology platform. Brightside Clinic dedicates itself to providing comprehensive and evidence-based treatment to those in need. Our treatment is tailored and customized to help our clients succeed.
What are some advantages of being located/doing business in the Capital Region?
The Capital Region provides the opportunity to connect with progressive business owners who are looking for innovative ways to solve community problems.
Why did you decide to invest in BRAC?
BRAC committed itself to my business and to my business’ growth at a time when we were most vulnerable. The entire team was invested in seeing us grow and offering resources and support to see it through. I haven’t found that level of commitment anywhere else.
What would you say to companies contemplating joining BRAC?
If you are clear about what your needs are and recognize that you can’t go it alone, BRAC should be your first call. BRAC can help your company fulfill those needs.
What do you anticipate for your company in the next five years? For the Capital Region?
I anticipate enterprise-growth in my company and the Capital Region in addition to industry diversification.
