37 HUB Program About Laura… Laura Cagle started her career with the State of Texas in 1991 as a contracts analyst for the Texas Department of Mental Health and Mental Retardation’s Construction Program. It was during this time (1993), Ms. Cagle was assigned to implement the Historically Underutilized Business Program at the agency. Ms. Cagle has been involved in the HUB program in one capacity or another from the program’s inception and has been an advocate for small minority and woman-owned businesses. In 2004 Laura was recruited by private industry and held the position as the Multicultural Business Development Manager for the Southwest United States and during her 2.5 years in this position, helped small minority and women-owned businesses obtain over $10 million in government contracts. Many of the tools and techniques developed from evaluating opportunities from a contractor/vendor’s perspective are reflected in this workshop. Laura returned to state government in 2007 as a procurement policy writer for the Department of Aging and Disabilities Services and in 2009 procured the position of HUB Program Director for TCEQ.
