I’m thankful that two plus years ago (June 2012) our team of incredibly talented consultants took the leap of faith and decided to leave the comfort of a large firm and devote their careers to supporting our Government Contracting clients around the US and internationally. 

I am thankful and humbled by the fact that our incredibly talented work force shows up for work each day and commits to a long-term objective of serving our customers and making a difference.

I’m thankful for each and every customer we have (over 500) and I’m thankful that we never take for granted our role and that all of our employees have a servant attitude toward meeting our customers objectives.  

I’m thankful that our team is well rounded and also supports local and national charities and that we understand that family and relationships are critical. Balance is important and we strive to maintain a balance between work and family.

I’m thankful that we are more focused on client service and customer results than we are on targeted profit margins.  Thankfully we strive to do the right thing and make decisions based on our customer’s needs and budget objectives.

This Thanksgiving I give thanks to those who had the courage to take risk, get out of their comfort zones and follow their passions.  It’s at the core of our Country and why we are the greatest Country in the world.  I am thankful for our service veterans and the sacrifices that were made so that we can enjoy freedom.  God bless and have a great Thanksgiving.
