DVBE Partnering:
Overview

"When our launch date was moved up we realized that we needed more horsepower to develop and deliver software tools critical for science commissioning of the Kepler Mission shortly after launch. Normally, identifying and hiring a qualified software developer takes several months. Also the spin-up time required for a developer to become fully productive in Kepler's unique, custom-built Science Pipeline normally takes several months. We had no time to waste, and Hicks Consulting helped us identify and hire qualified software developers in record time. Hick's Cherie DeWees worked with us to understand the skill set and teamwork attitude we were looking for. We delivered all the launch-critical software on time to support launch and commissioning in no small part thanks to the two personnel that Hick's brought on board our team."

A Successful Business First, a DVBE Second

If you're looking for a Disabled Veteran Business Enterprise (DVBE) to partner with for state or federal government bidding opportunities, or to expand your organization's DVBE diversity spend, look no further than Hicks Professional Group. We were a successful business before we were a certified DVBE, having provided IT Staffing Solutions for a wide range of companies since 1979. This means you can be assured that our part of the project will be completed professionally, on time and within budget.

Hicks Professional Group became certified as a DVBE in 2008, two years after current CEO Darren Hicks joined the company. A decorated former Navy Seal who served in Operation Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan after 9/11, Darren's leadership, focus and adherence to Navy SEAL core values sets the bar high for Hicks Professional Group, as is evidenced by the commitment of our staff and consultants to providing first class solutions to each client and agency.

If your organization is looking for a DVBE as a sub-contractor for state or federal government bidding opportunities, to expand your organization's DVBE diversity spend, or to tap into the immensely capable veteran workforce, Hicks Professional Group is here to help.
