one in seven veterans owns a business compared with only one in fourteen non-veterans
Norwell, MA (Vocus/PRWEB) April 09, 2011
TCM is now a proud member of NaVOBA, according to TCM’s founder and CEO, John Danieli. Mr. Danieli served proudly in the U.S. Marine Corp and wants to inform all current and potential clients that his company supports the mission of the NaVOBA.
NaVOBA’s Mission is to create opportunities for all of America’s veteran-owned businesses. NaVOBA works hard to convince major corporations to recognize the value of veteran-owned businesses as well as taking federal agencies to task ensuring they issue the required contracts to America’s veteran-owned businesses.
NaVOBA galvanizes the nation’s three million businesses owned by veterans by providing a single voice to advocate for important issues. The lessons learned and lived in military service like leadership, teamwork, competitive spirit, mission-orientation and work ethic are the same attributes needed to succeed in business. So it’s no surprise that veterans are twice as likely to own a business than non-veterans. According to Census data, one in seven veterans owns a business compared with only one in fourteen non-veterans. Other NaVOBA members and supporters include such recognizable names as Microsoft, Raytheon, Merck, Wells Fargo, Dell and McKesson.
Daniel Webster, Sr. V.P., Healthcare Practice for TCM is U.S. Navy Veteran and believes it makes good economic sense to work with veteran-owned businesses. As NaVOBA points out, veterans have proven themselves capable of being focused, working long hours, and overcoming obstacles. These are traits any organization should want in a partner, particularly as organizations and their partners deal in turbulent times.
TCM teams with veteran-owned and diversity-based corporations in competing for federal and state IT roles. This is true not only in defense-related work, but also in financial, insurance, healthcare, and other fields of endeavor. Some interesting companies founded by veterans include Nike, founded by Phil Knight (Army); FedEx, founded by Fred Smith (Marines); EDS and Perot Systems, founded by Ross Perot (Navy).
TCM is proud to be a veteran-owned company, and one in which its founder gives back to the community, including donations to the Naval War College, the Marine Corp sponsored “Toys for Tots” Foundation and the Semper Fidelis Society.
