Dublin company delivers targeted placement for vets returning to the civilian workforce
OnPoint Performance Solutions, a veteran-owned recruiting, talent placement and mission support firm has moved into its new company headquarters in Dublin's Commerce Park. The firm's co-founder and president Todd Miller discussed the move and the company's expansion in a news release earlier this week:
The decision to relocate its headquarters was due to the company’s success and increased business lines. A local success story, OnPoint has grown from a good idea to a $9 million company in just three years. OnPoint provides talent placements services and supports the US military with trainers by recruiting from a pool of veterans and cultural/language professionals. The company is led by two Army veterans, Lieutenant Colonel Todd Miller (Ret.) and First Sergeant Dan Whitney (Ret.), who have been friends and colleagues for years, both in and out of uniform.
“This is our way of continuing to serve our country out of uniform with genuine and valuable services to the Departments of Defense, State, and Homeland Security, as well as local corporations and communities,” said Miller, the company president, Ohio native, and West Point graduate. “We have an experienced, robust, and proven recruiting apparatus with the networks necessary to complete our mission nation-wide. We are two successful, time-tested, and proven leaders who have a disciplined approach to life, business, respect for and adherence to processes and procedures, and a determination to see things through to the end.”
The two vets founded OnPoint with the desire to continue serving their country and create potential for others to serve. Miller and Whitney worked together at The Ohio State University as faculty members in the Army ROTC program and were on the Training & Technical Service Group at Columbus’s own Mission Essential Personnel for two years, as director and business development manager respectively. OnPoint prides itself in matching personal skills and career goals with opportunities.
“We started this company because we identified a real need for our services. We plan to deliver,” said Whitney, vice president and COO. “The real long-term value in our human capital talent center is not in the number of people we employee or where we employ them, but in who we are, and how we do it – we are a company of character that provides a genuine service to our nation.”
OnPoint creates value through its diverse portfolio of services in multiple markets: government, academic, and commercial. A key to OnPoint’s success is establishing successful industry partnerships. The company’s core solutions include:
Talent Acquisition and Placement
- Leadership & Management (Program, Operations, Logistics, Maintenance), Program & Operations Analysts, Business Development, Subject Matter and Technical Experts
- Language & Cultural Experts for Translation & Interpretation, Cultural Advisors, and Language Instruction
Mission Support Services
- Recruiting, Administrative Support, Instruction & Training
OnPoint’s success is truly remarkable, particularly in these lean times. According to a New York Times article, of the more than 20 million small businesses in the United States, only about 500,000 are currently in a position to do business with the federal government. Of those, only about 1% (5,000) ever win contracts of the magnitude OnPoint has: $9 million over the last three years. While the company was founded and is headquartered in central Ohio, it continues to expand its footprint, and grew to more than 70 employees in 32 locations in 2012, including a recent expansion into the United Kingdom. OnPoint is a Service Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business (SDVOSB).
