The International Stability Operations Association (ISOA) awarded DynCorp International (DI) its Vanguard Award for large companies at ISOA’s 2017 Achievement Award Ceremony on June 1.
ISOA Vanguard Awards recognize small, medium, and large companies in the stability operations industry that consistently demonstrate commitment to accountability, transparency, and ethics in the stability operations field. An independent panel selected DI for the Vanguard Award based on our work in stability operations, examples of our performance in capacity building and humanitarian operations, and our history of transparency, ethical conduct, and respect for human rights.
In receiving the award, DI CEO Lou Von Thaer said, “I am proud to accept this award, which represents the values that all our employees work to achieve every day around world. Our employees work hard, often in tough places, and I want to recognize their superb performance, which gives me the honor to accept this award on their behalf.”
DI has been a member ISOA since 2007 and the association awarded DI’s Will Imbrie its Lifetime Achievement Award for his contributions to the organization as a member of the Board and its Chairman from 2014-2016.
General John Campbell (Ret.) was the keynote speaker at the event. Government Achievement Awards were given to Gary Motsek and Cathy Read, and Lifetime Achievement Awards were given to Doug Brooks and Will Imbrie. DI was among 16 companies receiving Corporate Achievement Awards.
