Jacques Island, MPA
President INQUESTA Corporation
A CVE verified Veteran Owned Small Business (VOSB) and risk management company

As a risk management consultant to a major company in which Rafael was a senior manager, I can attest as to his resourcefulness and drive to produce creative, effective solutions. Recently he was tasked with establishing a vendor management (VM) system that accommodates the industry’s heavy dependence on contractors and independents, their chronic turnover rate and the frequently weak performance records of upstart contractors. He produced a flexible VM system that nurtures the upstarts while controlling the risks as they prove themselves for increasingly more complex and costly assignments; and takes full advantage of the established, larger contractors with strong profiles to execute the mission critical projects. Rafael’s VM solution established controls and minimized operational risks.
