“The Board of Directors of the National Veteran Small Business Coalition (NVSBC) is pleased to announce the appointment of Mr. Scott Jensen as the organization’s new Executive Director. He succeeds Founding Executive Director Scott Denniston who has been in the position since June 2010. Jensen will start his new position on August 1.”
“It has been a true honor to have been part of the NVSBC for the past 10 years. When seven of us had lunch 10 years ago to discuss the need for an organization of Veteran small business owners to represent ourselves in the federal marketplace we had no idea what we were starting! Through the hard work of our dedicated board members and staff we are now a well-respected organization,” stated Denniston. “I am excited to watch Scott Jensen build on our successes and welcome him to the NVSBC. I want to especially thank Heather Lee and Earl Morgan, our dedicated staff members for their unwavering support. I also want to thank all of our sponsors, members and volunteers who make NVSBC possible. I hope to stay involved in some, as yet to be determined, capacity. There are no better people in this great nation than our Veterans! God Bless You All!”
“Jensen’s background uniquely positions him to assume this post, as the NVSBC’s second Executive Director. With three decades of management, leadership and cultural experience, Jensen provided holistic expertise, understanding, and keen insight into optimizing and growing organizations. He has a passion for serving the Veteran and nonprofit communities. Jensen frequently addresses military, civilian, and higher education organizations on an array of topics that include leadership, strong culture, trauma survivor care and support, and workplace harassment and violence prevention. An author and speaker, he has been featured as an expert in print, radio, and television media including Forbes, USA Today, The Washington Post, BBC, NPR, and Headline News.”
“I am very pleased to have this opportunity to contribute to the Veteran owned business community as part of such a strong and well-respected organization as the NVSBC,” stated Jensen. “I applaud Scott Denniston’s hard work in building and growing the NVSBC and am excited to work with our board of directors, staff, and membership to sustain that growth into the future. We remain laser-focused on advocating for and supporting Veteran owned businesses…” Read the full announcement here.
