About Our Team

We want to get to know you, so you should get to know us!
Read below for who we are, what we do, and why we are teaming up.

Our Story

Sims Strategic Diversity Consultants was established in 1995 to bridge the gap between diverse businesses and procurement opportunities in the public and private sector. Our mission is to develop, strengthen and increase business opportunities for Minority Business Enterprise (MBE), Women Business Enterprise (WBE), Small Business Enterprise (SBE) and Historical Underutilized Business Enterprise (HUBE) creating a positive economic impact. A number of drivers strengthen the case for business diversity, including demographic shifts in the general U.S. population, the need for city, state and federal government compliance with diversity business goals and alignment with broader procurement and supply management objectives.

AuroCore Solutions, LLC was started to fill a void in an ever-changing and fast paced world. Inefficient systems are constantly being required to produce what has never been achieved. Without adding resources, AuroCore Solutions helps streamline and improve existing processes. Why increase manual labor when you can shift the focus of your existing employees to a more value-adding role in the company?

By working together, we form a diverse, highly professional and experienced group of consultants able to work effectively with different types of clients in different situations. We have a variety of backgrounds – from management consultancies, operational process improvement, diversity and inclusion program management training in both the public and private sector. We take pride in assisting clients who have the responsibility of tracking utilization, reporting DBE spend, and measuring the effectiveness of a diversity program, while ensuring compliance at both the federal and local levels.

Our Philosophy

Bridging gaps, building
diverse business, resilience and connectivity.

Starting his career in finance, Chad quickly began developing tools to make lives easier. Refusing to settle for existing processes, he learned how to create programs that analyze large data sets. Recognizing the high demand for such programs and efficiencies, he founded AuroCore Solutions in 2014 with this new demand in mind. Using various programming languages, Chad takes pride in creating solutions for companies that will allow a focus on core strengths, rather than the distraction of day-to-day tasks.
