Naval Systems Inc. has been named Member of the Year by The Patuxent Partnership for 2018.

Each year, the Member of the Year Award is presented to the member company that has shown strength in its business performance, culture among employees, community affairs, and volunteer activities throughout the year. NSI has excelled in all of these areas, earning the company this important distinction.

NSI is being recognized for outstanding leadership, community support, and commitment to the economic growth and development of Southern Maryland.

Each year, TPP presents the Member of the Year Award at its members dinner, which was held this year at Historic St. Mary’s City on May 15, and included guest speaker Undersecretary of the Navy Thomas Modly. Previous winners include AVIAN LLC, Aviation Systems Engineering Company, HTii, Northrop Grumman Corporation, Raytheon, Lockheed Martin, and Sabre Systems.

“The active engagement and support of our members is what makes TPP successful,” said TPP Executive Director Bonnie Green. “We are fortunate to have members like NSI, who demonstrate extraordinary support of the TPP mission and the Southern Maryland community.”

Ed Rule, NSI president and chief executive officer, accepted the award for his company. It was presented by Ms. Green and TPP Board of Directors President retired Navy rear admiral Bert Johnston, with an audience of nearly 300 members and guests.

“On behalf of Naval Systems Inc., we are honored and humbled to be named TPP’s 2018 Member Company of the Year,” said Rule at the presentation. “We strive to provide unparalleled service to our customers, as well as providing support to a vast array of community programs and initiatives to enhance workforce retention. Receiving this award is clear affirmation that our culture and core values are spot-on and our employees are delivering on our promise of excellence!”

In 2018, NSI sponsored a local student to represent Southern Maryland at the Envision National Youth Leadership Forum “Pathways to STEM” summer camp, held in College Park, MD.

“The company culture and strong growth underscore NSI’s core values of quality, integrity, teamwork, and success, rounded out by an energetic commitment to the Southern Maryland community,” said Mr. Johnston at the presentation. “We thank NSI for their commitment to community service and retaining top quality talent right here in Southern Maryland.”
