On May 17th Jose (Joe) Perez our Founder was recognized by the Small Business Administration’s as the Veteran Small Business Champion of the Year. Joe was presented the award by the SBA Region VI Administrator Yolanda Olivarez at the 2013 Small Business Week Awards Luncheon held at the Omni Colonnade Hotel. Also accepting the award with Joe on behalf of Frontline was Neal Secor the company’s Senior Project Manager. At the conclusion of the awards ceremony, Joe went on to express his gratitude by saying “… we (the Team) are grateful for this recognition. It is great when you come to the attention of a group or public agency for the strong growth we’ve experienced over the last three years, and for the work we’ve done in support veterans’ entrepreneurial endeavors. We have worked hard to grow our own team through a mix of veteran and non-veteran professionals. All of it would not have been possible without the focused and deliberate efforts of all of the folks who’ve been part of our team. But especially the leaders like Neal who make it all look easy. That is one of the reasons why I love to get up in the morning.”
Frontline has experienced strong growth since its founding in 2010. One of the driving mission aims at Frontline is to hire veterans and service disabled veterans into the construction and facility support services industries and teach them how to operate in the federal marketplace. Through a team mix of veterans and non-veteran professionals they believe a strong collaborative culture will grow and produce excellence. Once a veteran becomes proficient in the area of choice they would be encouraged to start their own veteran owned business, if so desired.
