Congratulations to NVBDC’s Veteran Champion of the Year, Sherry Diccion, Sr. Manager, Global Supplier Diversity, Adient.
DETROIT, MI, UNITED STATES, November 19, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — National Veterans Business Development Council (NVBDC) was established to address the growing need to identify and certify both Service Disabled and Veteran Owned Businesses (SD/VOBs) for the commercial marketplace. Our initiatives focus on being the Veteran business certifying authority providing reliable revenue and management information to the business community.
Each year NVBDC Board of Directors and Officers review our corporations' activity, individual corporate members, NVBDC Certified Service Disabled and Veteran Owned Businesses and our resource partners. Recommendations are solicited from all NVBDC team members and submitted to the Board for deliberation and selection. Each award has its own set of standards and criteria that are reviewed to ensure we have an appropriate candidate for the award. The person or company is recognized for merit or achievements well above normal expectations.
The NVBDC awards are announced at the annual NVBDC National Business Matchmaking Conference. Our 5th annual conference was held this year on November 5-6 in a virtual environment due to the pandemic. With over 500 Veterans and Corporations' overwhelming attendance, it was the perfect setting to acknowledge the award recipients.
NVBDC's system works, but it is essential to understand the extra mile of commitment needed for success. As we acknowledge the below recipients, we are proud of all our Certified SD/VOBs and beholden to the support received by all our Corporate Members.
Veteran Champion of the Year is presented to the individual within a corporation for their tireless efforts on behalf of our veteran business owners and the NVBDC. To the person that has proven their patronage and implementation of NVBDC's certification program and support of our certified service-disabled and veteran-owned businesses. In recognition of their efforts on behalf of our veteran business owners and their active participation in the growth of the NVBDC.
The 2020 Veteran Champion of the Year was presented to Sherry Diccion, Sr. Manager, Global Supplier Diversity, Adient.
“Thank you to the entire NVBDC team for this amazing recognition! I am truly grateful for the opportunity to work with NVBDC, veteran-owned businesses, and corporate peers.

Focusing on these principles has made Adient an inclusive and diverse company that prides itself on creating a workplace governed by mutual respect – for our customers, our suppliers, and our employees. I also want to extend this recognition to our purchasing team—Adient’s success is from our team’s commitment and dedication to enhance our supply base with diverse suppliers.
Thank you again. I look forward to the continuous work of advancing supplier diversity initiatives and connecting our veterans to business opportunities.” Said, Sherry Diccion, SR. Manager, Global Supplier Diversity, Adient
