GuidePoint Security was honored with this award for the company’s leadership in helping America’s veterans, active-duty military and military spouses. The Patriots in Business award, presented each year by Chief Executive magazine and Thayer Leadership, is part of an ongoing effort to raise awareness of best practices among America’s corporate leaders when it comes to helping military veterans and their families.
GuidePoint Security rose to the top of a highly competitive, nationwide judging process in which a panel of Thayer veterans’ affairs experts and CEOs with military backgrounds assessed each nominated company’s programs. The award ceremony took place at the Veteran’s Day event at Nasdaq MarketSite in New York on November 11.
Michael Volk, Managing Partner and Founder of GuidePoint Security, who attended the awards event said: “GuidePoint Security takes great pride in training and hiring talented veterans who are transitioning to the civilian world and enabling them to embark on a new mission: ensuring the success of our government and commercial customers. I am honored to accept this award on behalf of GuidePoint Security and in recognition of the sacrifices made by our veterans in defending this country every day.”
“Chief Executive Group honors many exceptional leaders each year, but this award is especially meaningful for us,” said Marshall Cooper, CEO, Chief Executive Group. “It really showcases best practices that every business can learn from to help support such an important group in our society.”
