Supplier Diversity

Brightstar’s Supplier Diversity Program 

A hard-working group of minority entrepreneurs dreamed up Brightstar more than 20 years ago, leading us to success until our parent company, SoftBank Group Corp., acquired us in 2014.  

At Brightstar, we’ve always known diversity leads to a better mix of ideas and innovation we pride ourselves on delivering to our customers. So, we built our Supplier Diversity Program to more easily find and attract the best small and diverse suppliers.  Today, our roster of suppliers includes companies owned by minorities, women and veterans.

Our Team 

“With our operations now spanning the globe, it’s even more important to us that our customers around the world see themselves reflected in our supplier base.”

Antony Harrat

Global Vice President of Procurement
Supplier Diversity Leader

“It’s important to get away from the idea that there’s only one way to approach things, by seeking a different understanding. You only get that understanding by building a team of people who have different backgrounds and experiences.”

Catherine Smith

EVP, Chief Administrative Officer, General Counsel & Secretary
