April 5th, 2021, Arlington, Virginia – Blake Willson Group, today announced that it was selected as a finalist for the 13th Annual Small and Emerging Contractors Advisory Forum (SECAF) Awards. Winners will be announced at the virtual Awards Gala on Thursday, May 6, 2021. The event honors small and emerging government contractors and the players in the industry that rely on these businesses.
Blake Willson Group, LLC is a finalist for The Government Contractor of the Year (under $7.5million for 2020), which recognizes companies that have shown a compelling and profound commitment to excellence in financial performance.
RJ Blake, founder, and CEO at Blake Willson Group said, “2020 was a tough year for us all – spiritually, emotionally, and physically. We battled a Pandemic of a magnitude not seen in 100 years, a follow on recession, and civil unrest; all of which has challenged us as a company, and each individually – to do more with less – and I think we’ve come out on the other as a better company, as better people, with a brighter future. Receiving an award like this is a testament to the power of the human spirit. Only through each team member’s resilience and unwavering dedication to our people, our communities, and our clients were this award possible.”
“The SECAF Awards Gala shines a spotlight on the vision and success that enable the community of government contractors to deliver excellence year in and year out. It is a privilege to recognize Blake Willson Group, LLC as it mirrors the tenants of our own organization – leadership, fortitude, and commitment,” said Richard Pineda, CALIBRE President, and CEO, and SECAF Board Chair.
