Family man, Devron Ross, is trying to build something for not only his family, but also for his community.
As a Federal Mechanic Contractor, specializing in HVAC, plumbing, process piping, medical gas, and hydronic systems, Ross began his career over 25 years ago in upper management with different companies ending with his current company starting out as a foreman and working his way to the top and then having the ability to own the company in July 2008.
Mustang Group LLC is centrally located out of Oklahoma City, OK and works on all Federal Facilities within the State of Oklahoma with the largest project currently at $925,000.
Since Devron’s business began it has grown 314% and when asked how much the economy has impacted his business he responded with “the economy has increased my competitors as private projects were slow. They moved to Federal contracts, therefore our profit margins have decreased.”
Devron got his business running with the help of Citizen Potawatomi Community Development Corporation (CPCDC) when he read about it in the HowNikan, the tribal newspaper.
“My business would absolutely not exist today without them!” said Devron when he was asked how much help CPCDC was with his business. “Bob Crothers was and still is one of the three people I consult concerning financial decisions. Everyone in the Potawatomi Nation should call our CDC first if they have a business idea they are passionate about, of any kind or size. Our CDC is lenient, inspirational, and very supportive even after your start-up. Our CDC doesn’t know everything, but they also won’t stop helping you find the correct answer until you feel confident. Felecia Freeman is a wizard with improving your credit history, and Shane Jett is the best cheerleader I’ve ever known as an Executive Director. Can’t praise our CDC enough!”
