James D’Cruz, associate from global law firm Greenberg Traurig, P.A.’s Orlando office, has been named a member of the Florida Association of Veteran Owned Businesses (FAVOB) state-wide board of directors, joining a team of officers comprising 15 members. In his role, D’Cruz will help further FAVOB’s mission of creating opportunities to help veteran business owners thrive.
FAVOB is the only Florida business organization singularly focused on advocating for and supporting veteran-owned businesses (VOBs) to work with each other, while creating opportunities for VOBs to team up with local government agencies and for-profit supplier diversity programs. Florida, being home to approximately 187,000 VOBs and generating over $57 billion in revenue annually, proves to be an important part of the business ecosystem.
D’Cruz who is also active in the United States Army Reserves said, “The greatest thing I can do for those who have so selflessly served our country is to serve them by helping maximize the potential of their businesses. FAVOB is unique in its ability to provide that opportunity, and I look forward to helping in every way I can to foster its and our members’ growth.”
