President and CEO Justin Bennett led the keynote at the Veteran’s Summit on Entrepreneurship 2017 that was held today at St. Louis Community College – Meramec. Bennett shared his inspirational story of struggle as an impoverished kid that grew to serve his country and become an entrepreneur that hires veterans. An excerpt of his message is below: “My vision is to foster a culture that is Agile in its ability to create an innovative environment that inspires exceptional solutions, integrity and teamwork. “As a result of our teamwork, we are having a record year in our company’s short history, with 166% increase in employees since August 2016. 75% are Veterans. “I leave you with this. Put your faith in your people. If your belief, vision and work ethic are solid, the people will be there to carry you in your growth.“
Earlier this year, CEO Justin Bennett appeared on a discussion panel for Operation Civilian Support and shared his thoughts on the advantages of hiring military veterans. At Geodata IT, we love the commitment and attention that our veterans bring to the table as employees. We are proudly veteran-owned and are honored to serve our nation as a GEOINT company in the areas of defense and intelligence.
