Succession Plan – Two Service-Disabled Veteran Owners
Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned certification by either the VA/CVE or the NVBDC is only granted to the individual/s who served, sacrificed, and suffered a disability related to their military service. Unlike minority or women owned companies, the Service-Disabled Veteran-Owner cannot transfer ownership to family, and their companies often do not survive beyond the founder. What results is often a situation where there are limited resources for growth and scalability, and reluctance for companies to develop long-term business relationships.
First Financial Veterans Leasing has demonstrated our commitment both to scale to meet our clients current needs, and to ensure our long-term viability by intentional Succession Planning. Garry Foster a Vietnam Combat Veteran founded Veterans Leasing in 2008 and continues to play an active role in our growth. David Myers a Gulf War Combat Veteran, 20 years his junior, joined the company in 2017, ensuring both resources to grow and scale currently, and providing a path for continued growth and success for many years to come.
