The National Veteran-Owned Business Association (NaVOBA) officially opened its annual survey today honoring the best U.S. corporations working with veteran-owned businesses. Now in its 13th year, this prestigious list honors the large corporations that most successfully engage the nation’s Certified Veteran’s Business Enterprises™ (VBEs) and/or Certified Service-Disabled Veteran’s Business Enterprises™ as suppliers. The survey runs through July 15, 2019.
“The military teaches leadership, teamwork, integrity, resolve and ingenuity,” said NaVOBA President Matthew Pavelek. “These intangibles are also the most important ingredients for success in running a business – which is why corporate America is so eager to partner with veteran-owned suppliers. The corporations we honor with this program just happen to be the best.”
The companies that earn the Best Corporations for Veteran’s Business Enterprises™ distinction will be featured in the Fall issue of Veteran’s Enterprise, NaVOBA’s official national quarterly report and will receive the award at the Business Beyond the Battlefield Conference during National Veteran’s Small Business week in Arlington, Texas November 7-9, 2019.
“NaVOBA’s efforts to identify the best big corporations doing business with veteran-owned businesses as suppliers has grown dramatically,” said NaVOBA Vice President Mimi Lohm.
“Recognizing these excellent Supplier Diversity Programs brings well-deserved acknowledgement to the exceptional job these firms do at working with America’s vetrepreneurs.”
