GinGer Cunningham, Founder & CEO
GinGer Cunningham’s Midwest upbringing greatly influenced her advocacy for economic development and civil rights in the trade industries. Her experiences as a Union Organizer, Contract Compliance Investigator, and Construction Project Monitor gave her the knowledge to begin GinGer Cunningham & Associates over a decade ago.
The firm's mission is to increase the participation rate of DBEs, M/FBEs, EDGE, SBEs, and other disadvantaged groups on major construction and transportation projects.
GinGer is active on several Boards and Committees. Recently, her organization was recognized nationally and locally as the premiere Historically Underserved Business (HUB) Firm of the Year by the Conference for Minority Transportation Officials (COMTO) & COMTO Columbus for the passion, knowledge, support and revenue her company has provided numerous subcontractors, primes and agencies.
In her spare time, GinGer enjoys spending time with her family, playing golf, and mentoring others on life lessons that support their personal and professional success.
