Disabled American Veterans (DAV) Department of Texas recently named Berry Aviation, Inc. their Midsize Employer of the Year. Berry Aviation is headquartered in San Marcos, Texas and employs more than 300 employees, 30% of which are U.S. veterans.
“We are honored to receive this recognition from DAV and it further galvanizes our commitment to do right by our Veterans,” said Stan Finch, President of Berry Aviation. “We have enjoyed a long and meaningful history serving the U.S. Department of Defense and we take great pride in employing Armed Forces Veterans throughout our company. Their experience and perspectives have time and again proven beneficial to our global operations. We are truly thankful for our Veterans’ service and are proud to have them on our Berry team.”
The DAV Midsize Employer award recognizes businesses with 250 to 999 employees that demonstrate by their employment policies, hiring practices and community outreach that they have an unwavering commitment and passion to ensure all veterans obtain suitable employment to care for themselves and their families—and have the opportunity to live life with respect and dignity. The award will be presented at the DAV Department of Texas Convention on June 5, 2020 in Corpus Christi, Texas.
“Recruiting and hiring a Veteran is the most tangible way Berry Aviation can honor and express gratitude for the sacrifices made by our Veterans and their families,” said Warren Orr, Berry Aviation’s Director of Human Resources. “We have a proud history of being able to say 1 out of every 3 of our employees is a U.S. Veteran and we are equally proud that they select Berry Aviation as their ‘employer of choice.’ Berry is always on the lookout for high-caliber talent and appreciate the discipline, skill, and dedication that Veterans bring to our organization.”
