ROI principal, David Nellis, recently returned from Richmond and meetings with the new members of the VALET (Virginia Leaders in Export Trade) class.

VALET is a very successful, two-year, international business acceleration program run by the Commonwealth.  It provides a world of training and assistance to developing exporters; that is, to Virginia businesses with firmly established, domestic operations and that are committed to international export as an expansion strategy. This award-winning program offers a powerful combination of capital resources provided by the Commonwealth and professional services from expert, private sector partners (referred to by VALET as trade partners). Only 25 companies each year are accepted into the VALET program, and the VALET program generates an average increase in international sales of 54% for participating companies.

ROI was selected to serve as a VALET trade partner in January 2017 and is the exclusive, strategic brand marketing agency in Northern Virginia to serve in that capacity.
