The GCO Consulting Group was founded by CPT Scott Davidson USA, Ret. in 2008 to provide a better value and level of service to both large and small companies interested in working with the federal government. Scott enlisted in the Army and attained the rank of SGT before being selected to attend OCS. He was commissioned as an officer and subsequently deployed in both Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom. Scott then worked as the Director of GSA Schedules for a Fortune 500 company when he decided to start his own company to provide greater value at a more personal level. Scott relished the opportunity to help veteran business owners and provide world-class service that is affordable to all businesses. As GCO Consulting grew to the most trusted government contracting firm expanding their reach to hundreds of Inc. 500 and Inc. 5000 companies across America, Scott continued his mission to give back to the veteran community by creating the Veteran Success Resource Group (hyperlink to VSRG). VSRG is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to providing professional and personal resources for Veterans and their Families. It is through this organization that Bourbiz was created to provide a new way for veterans, military spouses, and caregivers to network with local resource providers.
