McLean, VA – (November 8, 2019) – On November 7, the National Veteran-Owned Business Association (NaVOBA) released its list of the best U.S. corporations committed to working with veteran-owned businesses in 2019 using data and responses from their Best Corporations for Veteran’s Business Enterprises® (BCVBE) Survey and DynCorp International (DI) was once again included. This prestigious list honors those large corporations that most successfully engage the nation’s certified Veteran’s and Service-Disabled Veteran’s Business Enterprises® (VBEs/SDVBEs) as suppliers.
To determine the 2019 Best Corporations for Veteran’s Business Enterprises®, NaVOBA analyzed large companies’ policies relating to the inclusion of veteran-owned and/or service disabled, veteran-owned businesses as part of every company’s supplier diversity program and the way in which that company utilizes its outreach program to attract veteran-owned and/or service disabled, veteran-owned businesses. NaVOBA also explored the company’s procurement infrastructure and allocation of assets, and any supplemental actions the company may have taken to improve its relationship with Certified Veteran’s Business Enterprises® and/or Service-Disabled Veteran’s Business Enterprises®.
“The military teaches leadership, teamwork, integrity, resolve and ingenuity,” said NaVOBA President Matthew Pavelek. “These intangibles are also the most important ingredients for success in running a business – which is why corporate America is so eager to partner with veteran-owned suppliers. The corporations we honor with this program just happen to be the best.”
The companies that earn the Best Corporations for Veteran’s Business Enterprises™ distinction were recognized and received the award at the Business Beyond the Battlefield Conference during National Veteran’s Small Business week in Arlington, Texas. Debbie Newberry, senior manager, Small Business, accepted the award on behalf of DI.
“NaVOBA’s efforts to identify the best big corporations doing business with veteran-owned businesses as suppliers has grown dramatically,” said NaVOBA Vice President Mimi Lohm. “Recognizing these excellent Supplier Diversity Programs brings well-deserved acknowledgement to the exceptional job these firms do at working with America’s vetrepreneurs.”
DI has received this recognition for twelve years, 2007-2017 and 2019.
