CALIBRE Systems Inc. was recognized as an “Impactful Government Contractor” at the RecognizeDC Government Contracting Awards, the company said.
The recognition honors companies for contributing to the government contracting industry through mentoring, business partnerships, philanthropy, advocacy and dedication to their core missions, CALBIRE said.
The consulting and information technology company’s support of small businesses, through mentor-protégé programs, and its commitment to philanthropic activities were central to the recognition.
“Our mentor-protégé programs have helped a number of small businesses to grow their enterprises,” CALIBRE President and CEO Joe Martore said. “Our programs stand out because our executives personally provide mentoring and guidance to address the unique challenges facing each of our protégés.”
CALIBRE and its employees support many charitable organizations, including Homes for our Troops and Toys for Tots, Easter Seals, and the Northern Virginia Chamber of Commerce Veterans & Military Business Council.
Martore was also honored at the annual GovCon Awards on Nov. 1, taking home the award for Executive of the Year in the $75 million-$300 million category.
