The Kavaliro Difference

Veterans Employing Veterans

Kavaliro is proud to employ over 80 active and former military personnel. We are committed to furthering this initiative and have established a veteran transition program for those service members who are moving from active duty to civilian or reserve.

Proven DOD Results

In 2003, Kavaliro’s founders helped establish the fastest-growing DOD services company, which was ultimately acquired by what is now Salient/CRGT. Kavaliro has continued to serve various government agencies since our founding in 2009.

By applying a staffing agency methodology to a DOD services platform, that company went from 0 to 1500 employees in seven years. More than 75% of these resources were cleared, and Kavaliro maintained this data post acquisition.
