Telos Corporation Named Trout Unlimited 2017 Corporate Conservation Partner
ASHBURN, Va.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Telos®
Corporation, a leading provider of continuous security solutions and
services for the world’s most security-conscious organizations, was
named the Trout Unlimited (TU) Corporate Conservation Partner of 2017.
Since 2011, Telos has provided funding for TU’s Veterans Service
Partnership (VSP), a program that helps veterans find hope and healing
through fly fishing and conservation.
“Through the support of TU’s Veterans Service Partnership, Telos is
proud to support a program that provides an outlet to the veteran
community that can help them navigate the physical and emotional wounds
they incur during service to our country,” said John B. Wood, CEO and
chairman, Telos. “Being recognized as the 2017 Corporate Conservation
Partner is an honor, and we look forward to continuing our support for
TU’s VSP for many years to come.”
Trout Unlimited engages its extensive network of volunteers to introduce
wounded and returning veterans to conservation work through fly fishing.
TU chapters and partner organizations provide instruction, camaraderie
and local networks of anglers to the veteran community around the
country. TU’s Veterans Service Partnership also provides fishing
retreats for veterans with physical and emotional scars, as well as
family members grieving the loss of military loved ones.
“Each year, Trout Unlimited honors a company that is uniquely dedicated
to our mission and steadfastly supports our important work across the
country,” said Chris Wood, president and CEO, Trout Unlimited. “Nearly a
decade ago, my brother Emmett Wood, the EVP of marketing at Telos, and I
hatched the Veterans Service Partnership over pizza and beer. From that
evening Telos has been steadfast in support of our veterans and Trout
Unlimited. They have been with us from the beginning and continue to
help us expand and grow this truly important work to this day. We’re
proud to recognize them as this year’s Corporate Conservation Partner.”
To date, TU chapters across the country have helped nearly 7,000 wounded
veterans, donating over 60,000 volunteer hours.
“Our nation’s veterans and their families have served and sacrificed to
protect our country and the freedoms we all enjoy,” said David Kumlien,
VSP coordinator, Trout Unlimited. “The TU Veterans Service Partnership
is our effort to honor that sacrifice by welcoming these service men and
women and their families into our Trout Unlimited community, while
providing them a meaningful way to continue to serve through
conservation. With more than 200 local chapters serving thousands of
veterans each year, the VSP program continues to grow and make a
difference in the lives of our nation’s military family.”
Telos received the award on September 29, during TU’s Volunteer Awards
Banquet held at their annual meeting in Roanoke, Va. Past recipients
include Tiffany & Co. Foundation, The Orvis Company, and Costa Del Mar.
