FALLS CHURCH, Va. (March 21, 2013) – DynCorp International today announced that it has been recognized for the seventh year in a row as one of the United States’ five best defense companies for veteran-owned businesses.
The list, compiled by the National Veteran-Owned Business Association (NaVOBA) and featured on the cover of the April 2013 issue of Vetrepreneur magazine, recognizes corporations that most successfully engage the nation’s three million veteran-owned businesses as suppliers.
“The company was founded by veterans more than 60 years ago and, today, more than 65 percent of our personnel have served in the military,” said Steve Gaffney, DynCorp International chairman and chief executive officer. “That shared sense of service, values and discipline – in both our veteran personnel and veteran-owned suppliers – helps us perform to a higher level when supporting national security and foreign policy objectives around the world.”
“These corporations that earn a spot on this exclusive list are the best in the U.S. at recognizing how well the military prepares business leaders through teaching leadership, teamwork, resolve, integrity and ingenuity,” said NaVOBA President Chris Hale. “Corporate America is eager to partner with business leaders who embody those intangibles combined with exemplary skills and the dedication needed to contribute to overall economic success. We’re delighted to highlight and honor them.”
NaVOBA unites the nation’s three million businesses owned by military veterans by providing a single voice to advocate for important issues. For more information on the top 10 list, please see the following link: www.navoba.com/article/10-best-corps-for-vobs-2013.
