)-- The National Veteran-Owned Business Association (NaVOBA) has recognized DynCorp International as one of the 2012 top 10 corporations supporting and partnering with veteran-owned businesses. This is DI’s sixth consecutive year as a member of this prestigious group.
Corporations selected for this honor are those that most successfully employ the country’s three million-plus veteran-owned businesses as suppliers. More than 160 of the world’s largest corporations use veteran-owned businesses as preferred vendors, but those in the top 10 have created solid, on-going business relationships that merit recognition.
The award-winners are featured in the cover story of the April 2012 issue of Vetrepreneur magazine and will also be highlighted on the NaVOBA website.
NaVOBA President Chris Hale describes the significance of this recognition, commenting,, “The top 10 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.”
DynCorp International chairman and CEO Steve Gaffney believes that the dedication and experience of veterans as employees, partners and suppliers helps provide outstanding support for DI’s global initiatives of defense, diplomacy and development. Veterans make up about sixty-five percent of DynCorp International’s current workforce.
