Every day is Veteran’s Day at Loudoun County’s B3 Group, which has focused on military veterans to build a rapidly growing workforce.

B3 Group hired 27 veterans last year (55 overall), more than any other small business in the Commonwealth, and was honored by Virginia Governor Ralph Northam during the Virginia Values Veterans Awards Luncheon.

“Our fast-growing company relies on the high-level skills that veterans bring to the table,” said B3 Group President and CEO Dwight Hunt in a press release. “We have established a culture that values men and women who have served our nation.

“Not only does this create an atmosphere of support for team members, but it positively impacts our relationships with customers, many of whom are also veterans.”

Hunt served for 20 years as a U.S. Army officer before joining B3 Group in 2011. Aside from hiring veterans, he remains active in their advocacy as well, serving on the D.C. Chapter Board of Directors for the National Veterans Small Business Coalition, and providing business and federal contracting training for the Veteran Success Resource Group.

Brad Palmer, B3 Group’s founder and COO, is a member of the leadership team for the Paralyzed Veterans of America – National Chapter, providing his professional experience to veterans of the armed forces who have experienced spinal cord injury or dysfunction.

B3 Group is a Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business health IT firm providing technology support services to the federal government and enterprise customers. Headquartered in Leesburg, Va., B3 Group employs more than 150 in 11 states and was a 2017 member of the Inc. 5000 list for Fastest Growing Companies.
