The Nunn-Perry Award, named in honor of former Senator Sam Nunn and former Secretary of Defense William Perry, was first awarded in 1995 to recognize outstanding Mentor-Protégé teams formed under the auspices of the Department of Defense Mentor-Protégé program.

The Award was presented to CDP Fastener Group President, Mark Cutting, Vice President and C.O.O, Paul Wagner, General Dynamics C4 Systems Director of Supply Chain, Robert Kane and General Dynamics C4 Systems Small Business Liaison, Lynn Simmons at a ceremony at the Westin Peachtree Plaza in Atlanta, Georgia.

The agreement between CDP Fastener Group and General Dynamics has been such a great achievement on so many levels. I think it is fantastic to have both companies recognized with an award that is as honorable and recognizable as the Nunn-Perry Award. This has been an outstanding year for CDP Fastener Group and the opportunities for growth that are before us are amazing.
