Antonio Rangel serves as TRDI’s Director of Business Development, applying his specialized expertise in proposal development and labor relations to enhance the effectiveness of the organization’s programs and relationships. Antonio is an expert on the McNamara-O’Hara Service Contract Act of 1965 (SCA), which requires contractors and subcontractors on government contracts to pay service employees prevailing wage rates. He has more than 37 years of experience in the government service contract industry. In 1985, he formed Tony Rangel & Associates, a consulting firm designed to assist government service contractors in developing technical and cost proposals in response to solicitations for government service contracts. This led to an offer to join Hospital Klean Inc., where he grew the company from a few thousand dollars in revenue to over $25million within a few short years. Before founding TRDI in November of 1999, Antonio was the executive director of a non-profit of similar scope. This experience inspired him to found TRDI with the vision to assist disabled Americans in finding employment and training through the acquisition of federal government service contracts for custodial and grounds maintenance service. He was also director of personnel for Stanley Structures, Inc., where he handled collective bargaining negotiations and related duties on behalf of Stanley with various building trades labor unions across several states. Antonio is a member of the board of trustees of the Laborer’s National Health & Welfare Fund and the Service Contract Education and Training Trust Fund. Antonio is civically involved in the Scleroderma Foundation and enjoys reading, writing, and classical music in his free time.
