About the Speaker

Molly K. Gimmel is the co-founder and Chief Executive Officer of Design To Delivery Inc. D2DInc was founded in September 2001 as a consulting firm dedicated to helping small businesses win and manage government contracts. D2DInc helped its clients win hundreds of millions of dollars in federal contracts, and assisted over 400 companies in getting on the GSA Schedule. In 2009, D2DInc established its own federal practice and is now 100% focused on serving government agencies in the areas of acquisition and contract management; program management; budget and financial management; and administrative and clerical support. Molly serves as the Program Executive for D2DInc’s contracts with Federal customers, which include the Navy, Department of Interior, General Services Administration, and Coast Guard. In 2017, D2DInc was ranked #2852 on the Inc 5000 list of fastest growing privately held companies in the US, the fourth year in a row it was featured on the list (previously ranked #990 (2016), #997 (2015) and #1760 (2014)). D2DInc was also ranked #32 on the Women Presidents Organization’s list of Fifty Fastest Growing Women Owned Companies in 2016.

Molly has been working in the field of government contract and acquisition management since 1991. Before co-founding D2DInc, she spent eight years working in the government practices of three of the “Big Five” accounting/consulting firms. She is a recognized expert in government contracting and is regularly asked to speak to small business organizations and other groups interested in federal contracting.

Molly currently serves as Chair of the National Board of Directors for the National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO), and is a past president of the NAWBO Greater DC Chapter. She was named an Enterprising Woman of the Year in 2014 by Enterprising Women magazine and serves on the Enterprising Women Advisory Board. She also received a Brava Award from Smart CEO magazine in 2015 recognizing outstanding female CEOs. She is a member of Women Impacting Public Policy, Women in Defense, the National Defense Industrial Association, and the National Contract Management Association (NCMA).

Molly holds a Masters of Science in Contract & Acquisition Management from Florida Institute of Technology, and a Bachelors of Business Administration in Marketing from the College of William & Mary.
