Federal 100: Anthony Jimenez

Anthony Jimenez
President and CEO
MicroTech

Jimenez has built a corporate culture at MicroTech that is based on honest communication and a core set of values instilled in him during his military career. As a service-disabled veteran, he has made it his mission to support fellow veterans by offering them career opportunities and training, and he has testified many times on Capitol Hill on behalf of federal set-aside programs for veteran-owned companies.

“Tony has put small, veteran-owned businesses on the map by proving that those businesses can come in and do great-quality work,” said Deidre Lee, executive director of compliance at Fluor. “He is very purposeful about trying to make sure that he also employs veterans.”

MicroTech’s successes in 2009 resulted in several top ratings by industry publications and led to Jimenez receiving the Small Business Administration’s Veteran Small Business Champion of the Year award.
