Shawn Ralston named SAME’s 2022 Small Business Advocate of the Year

Congratulations to AECOM Small Business Program Manager Shawn Ralston, recipient of the Society of American Military Engineers’ 2022 Small Business Advocate of the Year Award for Excellence in Supporting Federal Programs. He received this recognition last year at the organization’s Small Business Conference in Nashville, Tennessee.

Shawn has been committed to the growth of small businesses throughout his career and continues to ensure AECOM stands as an industry leader in small business initiatives. By successfully pairing the talents of small and diverse firms with client needs, he has shaped the company’s award-winning federal small business program into what it is today.

“I get to help small companies grow their business by connecting them with the work AECOM is doing,” says Shawn. “This is one of the most rewarding aspects of my job, because it’s a growth opportunity for everyone. I truly believe supporting small businesses is the right thing to do.”

AECOM partners with nonprofit Service Dogs, Inc.

AECOM is pleased to once again share our booth with local Texas organization Service Dogs, Inc., a women-led nonprofit that trains and provides service dogs at no cost to wounded veterans, first responders, and others living with disabilities. 

After starting the organization in 1988, Sheri Soltes and her team have spent the last 35 years transforming thousands of stray dogs into stars that provide a variety of assistive behaviors. Their dogs are capable of alerting hearing-impaired partners to sounds, retrieving objects for partners with mobility related disabilities, helping abused children find their voice in court, building resiliency in first responders, and more.

If you’d like to join us in supporting this amazing cause, please stop by SBC booth 851 or visit https://givebutter.com/aecomsdi.
