"We are extremely excited to have Jason join the A-Team here at ASE and bring his wealth of knowledge and expertise to the team! We look forward to the positive impact he will have on the continued expansion and presence for both ASE and our supplier diversity initiatives.”

"The Federal Government has a long history of supporting veteran-owned businesses through set-aside and sole source contracts, as well as through education and training initiatives. Now corporate America is recognizing the importance of including veteran-owned businesses in their supply chains."

"In 2017, The Billion Dollar Roundtable  expanded their criteria of diverse businesses that counted toward a corporation’s billion-dollar supply chain spend on diverse-owned businesses to include Service-Disabled Veteran Disability-Owned Business Enterprises (SDV-DOBEs) and Veteran-Disability Owned Business Enterprises (V-DOBEs)."
