“Judy is the reason why our company, Gator Engineering & Aquifer Restoration, Inc. (GEAR), has won government multiple Federal contracts.
She may be a strong advocate for Woman Owned Businesses but she worked just as hard for our Service Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business (SDVOSB)."
Neeld Wilson, President of GEAR Engineering and a Navy veteran, tells the story.
“When we first hired her in 2008, Judy took us under her wing and guided us through the maze of the federal marketplace and as a result we won our first contract within 6 months! In fact, we won 3 contracts in 6 months. She is extremely thoughtful and stays in touch with us to this day; always wishing us the best. Judy is the ultimate professional and I recommend her to people who are trying to learn the ropes in the federal market.”
It’s never easy. But together we made it easier.
Today, Gator Engineering is a subcontractor on two winning IDIQs (USACE Mobile A/E contract and Navy CLEAN), and is providing services to the Navy and VA, Remedial Operation and Maintenance at Former Naval Training Center in Orlando, Design Build contract with VA in Gainesville and Lake City, and a soil sampling project with the VA in Bay Pines. The company has done deep well monitoring for the Army Corps of Engineers in West Palm Beach. Neeld and his team have also submitted a proposal for the East Region VA Environmental Services Contract (Maine to Puerto Rico), and expect to hear about that any day.
Neeld was one of the first clients to engage me to shape his strategy for government business. He works hard to focus on his best prospects, and has the results to show for it. I'm proud of him and his company, and grateful to him for sharing his story.
