NoVa Chamber Recognizes GovTact's Tim Bayliss with Veteran Employee of the Year Award

Government Tactical Solutions’ (GovTact) Director of Strategic Development, Tim Bayliss, was recognized by the Northern Virginia Chamber of Commerce with its Veteran Employee of the Year Award.

Bayliss received the award at the Chamber’s annual Distinguished Service Awards ceremony on Nov. 9.

“Thank you to the judges and the chamber for this recognition,” said Bayliss. “It is an absolute honor to be selected for this award amongst these other great nominees. As a veteran, I know the importance of navigating veteran resources and community integration. I believe it is our responsibility to ensure that no veteran is left behind. The real thanks and recognition go out to our nations heroes who have sacrificed and dedicated themselves to our country.”

Bayliss is an Army veteran who has been with GovTact for five years. He is an active veteran advocate in the community and within GovTact.

“Tim is beyond deserving of this recognition for his substantial impact on the veteran community,” said Paul Sanchez, GovTact CEO. “Tim is one of our company’s greatest success stories. He started as a security guard in our building. He then joined the GovTact team on contract and worked his way up to director. We are extremely lucky to have him on the GovTact team!”

Bayliss is GovTact’s designated veteran recruiter, helping veteran candidates throughout the job process and transition into the private sector. He has led the process of establishing multiple internal veteran-focused initiatives including the company’s Virginia Values Veterans (V3) certification and launching the Veteran Mentor Program.
