TYSONS CORNER, VA, July 1, 2019 — Steve Selfridge, president of government services at Day & Zimmermann, told ExecutiveBiz in an interview published June 19 that building company culture through talent recruitment and establishing portfolio diversity through acquisitions are two of the elements that drive the company's future.
According to Selfridge, Day & Zimmermann has made acquisitions in the past few years that have expanded its products and services to include aircraft maintenance, biometrics, cyber forensics, cybersecurity engineering, secure communications, and tactical intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance — all placing an emphasis on U.S. national security.
The company's hiring of staff also reflects an organizational culture centered on supporting the government by recruiting diverse people with the drive, skillset and mindset geared toward protecting the U.S. national security mission, he said.
“In addition, identifying ‘cleared talent’, with an active U.S. Government Security Clearance, can be a hurdle when we are seeking to fill a position with a very niche and specific skillset in a given timeframe… [but] we naturally solve this industry challenge by attracting the best retired military and veteran candidates — typically pre-cleared and eager to join our mission," noted Selfridge.
