Visionary Solutions, LLC

Speaker 1: Visionary Solutions. Safety and quality assurance.

Speaker 2: VS began with nothing more than desire and prayer. During our rollercoaster ride, we have had the great fortune to meet wonderful teachers, mentors, and advisors, as a result of our 8(a) certification. Large businesses rely on the program to ensure small business capability that is backed by the SBA. For example, we received a certificate of competency, which allowed us to win a five-year, $35 million contract that literally put us on the map and gave us needed sustainability. The 8(a) program is a hand up, not a handout. Through hard work and help from the SBA, VS has a strong history of 70 employees, 40 tractors, 230 trailers, and 20 million in local business revenue.

Cavanaugh: My name is Cavanaugh Mims. I am the president and founder of Visionary Solutions, LLC. We are a company located and headquartered in Oakridge, Tennessee. Briefly, I want to tell you about my background. I have a degree in nuclear engineering from 1986, from UT, University of Tennessee, Knoxville. I left there and went to work for the Department of Energy as an intern. In 2000, I was led to leave the department and we started Visionary Solutions. In 2002, we set a goal to be the top nuclear transporter in the country. We just completed the design of a very special tractor that was custom-built just for us, by our partners at Peterbuilt. It is one-of-a-kind, it is the safest truck in America, it is the most technologically advanced truck in America, and soon will be actually deployed in our fleet. At Visionary we do things a little bit different. We do not hire people for positions. We hire people for their creativity. We hire people for their work ethic, and we hire people for their love to help people.

Speaker 1: This combination of leadership, skills, and proven performance provides customer value, financial strength, operational excellence.
