By way of introduction, my name is Kirby Frazier. I am a former Army Paratrooper; a former dedicated member of the Big Red One (BRO); and United States Army Europe (USAREUR); who is Service-Connected Disabled COLD WAR VETERAN of FULDA, Europe and a Gulf War Era Veteran, and a Life Member of Disabled American Veteran (DAV). I am still praying for peace and the people of Ukraine in Europe. I am a graduated of Strayer University, Class of 2009, with a Masters of Business Administration (MBA) in Acquisition Management, and a Bachelors of Science (BS) in Electrical Engineering Technology from South Carolina State University (SCSU), historical black colleges and universities (HBCUs) diligently seeking the office of Mayor for the City of Stonecrest, GA. I am a former Army Officer/Sergeant, former Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Atlanta Chapter of the National Contract Management Association (NCMA) for the State of Georgia Contract Management Professional, Manufacturing Operation Management, Quality Management, Plant Engineer and Process Engineer/Management Consultant and Loader/Unloader, and Package Car Driver. I have worked in management within the private Industry for over 20 years. Additionally, I am a humble recipient of the coveted 2015 Outstanding Alumni of the Year Award from Strayer University which is located within the City of Stonecrest, GA and Douglasville, GA up to the point where I had a life changing medical challenge. Strayer University's Board of Directors bestowed this coveted award upon me for my leadership performance within the National Contract Management Profession. Under my leadership and vision, we were awarded our first of two (2) covet Gold Graalman Industry Awards during my administration. Under my administration, we expanded and strategically aligned the Atlanta Chapter to be the benchmark for other NCMA chapters to model after within the Contract Management Professions worldwide. This was accomplished by instituting a realistic strategic plan and chapter reorganization plan coupled with establishing collaborative key partnership and outreach to local universities, and provided government contract management continuing education to numerous corporate sponsors, prime government contractors and subcontractors, and other governmental agencies such as Center for Disease Control (CDC), Government Service Administration (GSA), Federal Emergency Management Agency (FMEA), Veterans Administration (VA), Housing and Urban Development (HUD), Corp of Engineers, the City of Atlanta, and Georgia Tech Assistance Center (GTPAC), where the NCMA Board Members conducted the monthly board meetings, along with the support of both the public and private sector partners of the chapter seeking professional growth ,and training. and professional development through mentorship. In short, l will leave you with something very simple. "Together, We Can Restore the TRUST and Not I. We can leave a STRONG LEGACY for FUTURE GENERATIONS to be PROUD of. There is no "I" in the word TEAM! It will never be about ME.
I am a proud member of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity Inc. and the Nation Pan-Hellenic Council of Dekalb County, (NPHC),and Advocate.
