We're glad to join other ASBC members in celebrating the organization's fifth anniversary and look forward to five more years of collaboration and expansion.
Chantilly, VA (PRWEB) April 26, 2009
At a gala reception and dinner last night, The American Small Business Coalition (ASBC), a membership organization for companies doing business with the government, presented Mission Essential Personnel (MEP) with its Founders Award for rapid growth and success serving American agency personnel overseas.
"MEP is pleased to be recognized for its successes, and is grateful to the ASBC for its role in our accomplishments," said MEP CEO and co-founder Chad Monnin. "Our growth is due in part to the support and advice we've received through ASBC."
MEP is a leading global mission support organization to the U.S. government, friendly foreign nations, and multi-national corporations. Renowned for providing highly trained and vetted linguists and cultural experts in the Middle East, Africa, and Europe, the company's services are designed to quickly and efficiently deliver skilled professionals across the world, on demand.
"MEP thanks ASBC's Guy and Margaret Timberlake for their support," said MEP co-founder and COO Greg Miller. "We're glad to join other ASBC members in celebrating the organization's fifth anniversary and look forward to five more years of collaboration and expansion."
MEP provides language and cultural advising, global training support, intelligence support, specialized human capital support, and program and policy management for the Departments of State and Defense, intelligence agencies, homeland security and law enforcement, and emerging markets.
MEP has grown rapidly from its 2003 founding as a service-disabled, veteran-owned small business. Unlike many of its competitors, MEP has extensive experience recruiting, training and managing skilled individuals to support international missions. The company's language capability extends to engineering, medicine, and information technology. From document translation and exploitation to language instruction and high-level interpretation, MEP's linguists are the best available.
By any standard - business volume, physical facilities, revenues, or staff size - MEP's growth has been remarkable. In less than six years, it has grown from a handful of employees bidding for subcontracts to a major player providing operational support and training, with 4,000 employees around the world. MEP has successfully managed more than 20 delivery orders globally, including a major prime contract for language services in Afghanistan.
In 2006, Ernst & Young named Monnin and Miller Entrepreneurs of the Year. In 2008, the company changed its name to Mission Essential Personnel, LLC. In 2009, it opened a major office in Chantilly, VA focused on business development in the national capital region.
Greg Carper, MEP's Vice President for Business Development, attended the event and accepted the award on the company's behalf.
