Trellist Inc. Celebrates Certified Veteran Owned Business Status


Trellist Inc. is proud to announce its recognition as a certified veteran-owned business by the National Veteran Business Development Council (NVBDC).  

“My experience in the military taught me the importance of teamwork, adaptability, and integrity,” said David Atadan, president of Trellist. "We’re honored to be recognized as a certified veteran-owned business and grateful for the opportunities it can provide." 

Atadan and Pat Toman, who founded the company together in 1995, are both veterans of the U.S. Armed Forces.  

"We built our business on foundations that help guide our commitment, not only to our clients and employees, but in how we serve our communities," Atadan said. 

As Trellist's Chief Executive Officer, Maria Gunther is honored to continue to guide a company founded by veterans. 

“While this certification does not serve as a qualifier of our services, it helps us raise awareness within the veteran-owned community as well as companies looking to work with an increasing number of diverse suppliers," Gunther said. 

NVBDC is a third-party certifying organization created in 2013 that administers a rigorous certification process designed to withstand government and corporate scrutiny of entities seeking to work with certified Service Disabled and Veteran Owned Businesses and is the accepted certifying body for the Billion Dollar Roundtable.
