What Our Clients Are Saying

“Throughout my business career, Lynn has been an exceptional mentor and a steadfast resource. His unwavering dedication to guiding me through the complexities of mergers and acquisitions, as well as his invaluable insights into creating more value for veterans, employees, and our communities, have been instrumental in my professional growth.”

Kris Larson, Sounds Creative Solutions

“Knowing that I had a group of veterans who were there to help me definitely gave me the confidence boost I needed at such a life-changing, pivotal moment in my life.”

Luke McDonald, Brick City Martial Arts

“From the start, Stephanie and Tracy at VBP have been phenomenal. I was surprised at how quickly I was contacted after I made my initial inquiry, and that speed has only increased throughout the time they have been assisting me. I originally made contact looking for assistance with registering with the City of Chicago as a VOSB. As this is a new program for VBP as well, they did not always have all the answers I needed immediately, but with their top-notch communication as well as their direct point of contact at the city, all my questions were answered in very little time.”
