From October 8-10, 2018, DynCorp International (DI) participated in the Association of the United States Army (AUSA) Annual Meeting & Exposition, the largest land power exposition and professional development forum in North America, at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C. More than 26,000 attendees, including senior Defense Department officials, military personnel and industry executives, participated in the event. DI was one of 9,123 exhibitors and invited those attending to learn more about the company and our offerings. DI executives maintained busy schedules networking with fellow industry leaders, meeting with customers and gaining knowledge into the Army’s needs throughout the three day tradeshow.
George Krivo, DynCorp International’s Chief Executive Officer, personally hosted numerous senior level customer and industry engagements and met with reporters from Defense One, Aviation Week and Defense News to share updates about DI and the defense services industry. In the interviews, he addressed DI’s rebound, new contract wins, defense budgets, the readiness shortfall, industry consolidation, sale rumors and more.
George Krivo also met with Bonnie Carroll, President and Founder of TAPS, to present a check for $143,000 that was recently raised by DI in a charity golf fundraiser in Texas in September. TAPS has supported many DI survivor families, and in 2014, DI became the first private company to form an official partnership with TAPS to provide support to families of fallen DI personnel.
