DynCorp International (DI) today announced that it has been recognized for the eighth year in a row as one of the United States’ top companies for working with veteran-owned businesses by the National Veteran-Owned Business Association (NaVOBA).
The prestigious list, which is featured in the April 2014 issue of NaVOBA’s Vetrepreneur magazine, honors the 25 best large corporations that most successfully engage the nation’s more than three million veteran-owned businesses (VOBs) as suppliers.
“More than 60% of our employees are veterans – we know that veterans and veteran-owned businesses understand our customers and their needs,” said Steve Gaffney, DynCorp International chairman and chief executive officer. “Partnering with veteran-owned businesses is an integral part of how we deliver results for those that we serve.”
“The corporations on this list know the real value of military training and how those intangible skills also tie into running a successful business,” said NaVOBA president Chris Hale. “We are proud and happy to highlight and honor them.”
NaVOBA unites the nation’s more than 3 million businesses owned by military veterans by providing a single voice to advocate for important issues. For more information and to view the entire list of companies recognized, visit www.navoba.com/BestCorps2014.
