Native Hawaiian Veterans

“Great companies require great people,” says Raymond Jardine of Native Hawaiian Veterans, LLC. “It’s really all about the employees and how they represent your company’s values. We have a phenomenal team, which is how we’ve grown and scaled so quickly since opening our business in 2005.”

As a Native Hawaiian, Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business (SDVOSB), Native Hawaiian Veterans, LLC provides smart management solutions to complex verticals such as homeland security, emergency management, information technology, communication equipment, munitions and explosives of concern (MEC) remediation, staffing, communications, and creative services. Typical projects include:
•    Security system upgrades
•    Installation and sustainment services
•    Computer facilities services
•    Computer and radio installation and maintenance
•    Emergency management plans, training, and services
•    Emergency response exercises
•    First responders trainings and assessments
•    E-911 dispatch operational and training services
•    Anti-Terrorism and Force Protection (ATFP) services
•    EOC/ROC/JROC fusion center services
•    Medical and other personnel staffing
•    Chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear, and high yield explosives (CBRNE) services

The company’s diverse offerings have led to a projected $25 million in revenues in 2014 with a staff of over 140 employees. “We’ve managed projects in 20 countries and 34 states, and roughly half of our work is done right here at home in Hawaii,” Jardine says. “But no matter where we are, we strive to bring the spirit of malama to all of our work sites.”

Native Hawaiian Veterans, LLC works diligently to ensure that its employees are valued and its customers are happy. A long list of awards and accolades, including Hawaii Business magazine’s Best Places to Work and Inc Magazine’s Fast 500, demonstrate the company’s commitment and work ethic. “Profits are a by-product of who we are,” Jardine says. “We earn them along the way to creating tremendous value for all of our stakeholders.”

While running a tip-top business is always number one priority, active involvement in the community is of equal importance. The company formed Kina’ole Foundation to provide leadership and educational opportunities across the islands by partnering with organizations like the JROTC and Wounded Warriors. Kina’ole means flawlessness in Hawaiian and both the Foundation and Native Hawaiian Veterans, LLC teach it by way of doing the right thing—the first time—in the right way, at the right time, in the right place, to the right person, with the right feeling. It’s no wonder then, that the company and its leadership continue to pave the way for Hawaii’s future.
