“SimVentions is excited to be recognized as one of the Best Places to Work in Virginia – for the seventh time! It is a blessing to see our growth from the first time we received this award as a small business – to today where we are receiving it as a large business! It is amazing to be recognized as a company that loves their employees and honors culture just as much now as when we were a small company. Our servant-leadership style and core values keep our corporate culture and work environment something that everyone loves to be a part of!” said Larry Root, CEO, SimVentions. “We operate off a foundation that believes that where your treasure is, there your heart will be also…and our treasure is in the God we serve; the customers we support; the work we do; the warfighters we touch; our employees and their families; and our community.”
