ScaleSec Earns Certified Veteran’s Business Enterprise™ Designation from the National Veteran Owned Business Association
ScaleSec is proud to announce that it has earned the exclusive designation as a Certified Veteran’s Business Enterprise™ (VBE) from the National Veteran Owned Business Association. To be eligible for the designation as NaVOBA Certified VBE™, the applicant firm must be at least 51% owned, operated and controlled by one or more U.S. military veterans. At its core certification is a protection for both veteran-owned businesses as well as the corporations and organizations that do business with them.
“We are thrilled to join the Navoba network. I am proud to lead our team as a veteran, and to hire veterans and others not typically working in this sector. It’s important to demonstrate that everyone can skill up and be a Cloud Security professional. I am grateful for businesses that see how this approach benefits their teams as well.”
Marsha Wilson, CEO Managing Partner and Co-Founder
NaVOBA’s VBE Certification ensures the firms that receive contracts are truly deserving of the opportunity. Heather Herndon-Wright, Director of Supply Chain Diversity for Dallas-based Vistra Energy and a NaVOBA Board Director, said verification and validation of the ownership, control and management of suppliers participating in the company’s supplier diversity initiatives is critical to the integrity of Vistra’s efforts.
“NaVOBA’s certification ensures we are utilizing and developing companies that are truly owned, controlled and managed by the veterans we are endeavoring to support, and not front companies for non-qualified individuals or businesses,” Wright said.
“People can easily say ‘I’m a veteran-owned business’ when they really aren’t,” NaVOBA President Matthew Pavelek said. “Corporations will not risk the accuracy of their Supplier Diversity spending goals by recording spend on contracts with firms that say they are owned by veterans if they aren’t absolutely certain of the ownership, operation and control of that firm. Working with a third-party nonprofit organization like NaVOBA and its VBE certification program provides that certainty.”
