“Watermark’s growth over time has been a result of hard work and building a great reputation for quality, innovation and results,” Watermark’s President, Kevin Hodges, stated. “To receive this award is testimony to our employees’ hard work and commitment to our client’s success. I couldn’t be prouder of our amazing team of professionals, or more thankful and humbled for the opportunity to be associated with each of them. No one in this business is successful by themselves, we are exceptionally fortunate to be associated with great teaming partners both large and small.”
Mr. Hodges further stressed the importance of networking and involvement in business advocacy groups such as the Small and Emerging Contractors Advisory Forum (SECAF). “We are thankful for the great support network we’ve developed through our membership and participation in SECAF activities,” he said. “Joining SECAF has been a game changer for us. We’re able to connect to mentors, potential partners, trusted professional service providers, financing, and have countless opportunities for access to government acquisition professionals, as well as education and training sessions on relevant topics impacting the government contracting industry.”
“The 2021 Inc. 5000 list feels like one of the most important rosters of companies ever compiled,” Scott Omelianuk, Editor-in-Chief of Inc., said. “Building one of the fastest-growing companies in America in any year is a remarkable achievement. Building one in the crisis we’ve lived through is just plain amazing. This kind of accomplishment comes with hard work, smart pivots, great leadership, and the help of a whole lot of people.”
