Monday, August 14, 2023

The Native American Contractors Association (NACA), the largest organization of Native- and tribal-owned companies, has a new executive director.

Quinton Carroll is Alaska Native. He previously served as legislative director for NACA and has worked for the Department of the Interior and for the U.S. Senate.

“Quinton’s knowledge of federal policy and how it impacts tribes, Alaska Native corporations, and Native Hawaiian organizations has proved to be valuable for NACA members, and we are confident that under Quinton’s leadership, NACA will continue to protect and promote government contracting opportunities for Native communities,” said Jon Panamaroff, the co-chair of NACA.

Carroll is a member of the Inupiat Community of the Arctic Slope and of the Native Village of Barrow, both of which are federally recognized tribes in Alaska. He’s also a shareholder of the Arctic Slope Regional Corporation and the Ukpeagvik Inupiat Corporation, both of which are Alaska Native corporations.

“With new challenges to government contracting and small businesses, NACA is excited to have Quinton serve as our Executive Director,” said Katherine Carlton, another co-chair of the organization.

“NACA will continue to educate members of Congress and the Administration on the importance of the 8(a) program to Native communities, while providing a valuable national presence for our members,” said Carlton.

NACA is based in Washington, D.C. The organization advocates for tribal nations, Alaska Native corporations and Native Hawaiian organizations when it comes to federal contracting and federal business opportunities.
