JBM joins this year’s celebration of the Spirit of ’76, and recognizes the courage and sacrifice required to reinforce and maintain the principles crafted by our nation’s founders. As we enjoy the holiday activities, JBM also wants to recognize those that remain vigilant and protect our hard earned freedoms.
Happy Independence Day!
On May 30th and 31st 2017, JBM had the unique opportunity to participate in an International Cyber Security Conference held at Oxford University’s Christ Church College. The Conference was attended by select members of academia and industry, and proved a productive forum to identify major trends and developments affecting cyber security. JBM brought a very unique perspective to these discussions based on our pioneering work in the greater Information Environment. The scope of our contributions ranged from strategic analysis to crafting institutional policies and integrating technical solutions.
More specifically, JBM recognizes that all organizations function within an Information Environment, and that their success is significantly enhanced by understanding how information influences their goals and daily operations. In today’s highly visible and dynamic business atmosphere, it is vital to consciously plan and account for the challenges and benefits offered in the modern digital age. At JBM, we have established a long-standing reputation for mastering those requirements, and demonstrate our customer commitment by working in concert with public and private sector stakeholders to jointly maneuver within the global Information Environment.
June 14, 2017: More than one million soldiers are currently serving in the US Army on active duty and with its National Guard and Reserve components. Today they celebrate the Army’s 242nd birthday. JBM would like to recognize all soldiers past and present for their selfless service to our nation. Happy Birthday!
May 26, 2017: The Alex J. Johnson Award is presented each year to an employee demonstrating the core areas of excellence reflected by our founder, Alex J. Johnson. These core areas include leadership, innovation, operational excellence and outstanding customer service. This year’s recipient is Sareeta Jackson. Sareeta was hired during Alex Johnson’s tenure and exhibits the characteristics to receive this prestigious award.
Sareeta Snow Jackson has been with JBM since 2009. Her tenure began as a Receptionist; however, within a very few years moved on to become the Executive Assistant to the CEO. Continuing with upward mobility, her diligent efforts in study, hard work and determination demonstrated her ability to progress to her current position as IT Coordinator. Ms. Jackson always goes beyond the call of duty to get the job done correctly; provide outstanding customer service; and to foster positive relationships with her internal and external customers.
Over the past few years, JBM has asked Sareeta to wear many hats and she has performed exceptionally in each capacity. Recently when approached her with an opportunity to support a direct program and become partially direct billable, her initial question was “what do you need me to do”? Her willingness to pitch in where ever help is needed is a leadership quality that is undervalued.
Ms. Jackson is directly responsible for saving JBM thousands of dollars. She was instrumental in replacing our costly and often out of service phone system/provider with a high quality system, while still reducing JBM’s annual cost significantly. In an effort to further reduce cost, Ms. Jackson brought our disaster recovery service in-house and spearheaded a server consolidation effort.
Sareeta regularly assists employees after hours with technical issues. She has received numerous positive comments on her professionalism and “can do” spirit. She is pleasant and extremely helpful to both her internal and external customers. On several occasions, Ms. Jackson has received accolades from past and present employees because of her willingness to assist and get to the root of the employee’s (or ex-employee’s) problem. She always demonstrates a willingness to learn and pitch in as a team player.
A top priority for Alex Johnson was his employees. Sareeta exhibits that strong characteristic of ensuring that her fellow employees are “taken care of”.
Congratulations Sareeta – well deserved!
JBM had the privilege of taking part in a celebration marking the production of the 100th AN/TPQ-53 (Q-53) radar system. The Q-53 is a new generation multi-mission capable sensor with the flexibility to adapt to uncooperative adversaries and changing missions. Since its initial conception, JBM has played a critical role in the design, fielding, training and sustainment of this vital system to the US Army. The Q-53 has been successfully employed in combat since 2010. During that time, JBM professionals have been continuously deployed to support the system and its critical mission to the US warfighter. JBM is proud to be a part of this historic program, and we extend our hearty congratulations to Lockheed Martin and all involved for realizing this important milestone.
