MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – A local (Morgantown) woman-owned firm was honored for their work in federal contracting, by the U.S. Small Business Administration.

Diana Lewis Jackson received the Small Business Prime Contractor of the Year award, for National Small Business Week.

Jackson is President and CEO of Action Facilities Management, Inc. (AFM), a minority-owned, woman-owned certified small business specializing in government and commercial facilities management. 

AFM supports clients in 11 states and Washington, D.C, and has more than 300 employees.  They provide a full spectrum of integrated facilities management, infrastructure and security support services with core competencies in facility operations, and maintenance, construction, administrative support services and emergency management.

Diana’s track record speaks for itself. She continually sees the benefit of working with SBA, through our program support, and we are honored to be part of her success story.”

Karen Friel, SBA West Virginia District Director
