THE VERTEX VALUES

At Vertex, we operate with Professionalism, Integrity, and Respect in everything we do. Our values provide the foundation for our commitment to the highest level of ethical conduct which is a commitment we take very seriously.

Professionalism

Professionalism

We are professional at all times because we represent Vertex at all times. Conducting ourselves in a professional, respectful manner and taking responsibility for our actions while treating everyone the way we want to be treated is the standard for all communication.

Integrity

Integrity

We demonstrate integrity by being truthful and honest ensuring we do the right thing at all times, even when (especially when) no one is watching. By applying our values and principles to our daily business activities, our actions always reflect the highest level of ethical conduct. We each take responsibility for knowing the laws and regulations governing Vertex and meeting the company’s ethical standards.

Respect

Respect

We are mindful and respectful of each other’s boundaries, differences, and values as people. Whether our communication is with customers, suppliers, outside parties, or one another, we treat everyone with dignity, fairness, and courtesy. Vertex supports an inclusive culture where diversity in people and perspective is valued. We cooperate across organizational boundaries, focusing on adding value and earning the trust of our teammates.

WHAT IT MEANS TO BE “ALL-IN”

All-In is a total commitment...

When it comes to our Vertex culture, All-In is a total commitment to our mission and the team while embracing diversity of thought and leveraging our differences for the betterment of ourselves and the organization.

Ed Boyington

Vertex President & CEO

All-In means living the company’s mission statement

All-In means living the company’s mission statement on a daily basis in everything that I do. We have the privilege to work in an industry where our efforts have a lasting impact on our nation’s security. Our differences are like the quilt my grandmother made for me when I was a young child. The patchwork of many different pieces of cloth carefully sewn together into an All-In single fabric was vibrant, alive, strong and enduring. My goal is to help support a culture that sews together the same sort of fabric and character for our company.

All-In is simply the willingness and passion to make personal sacrifices

All-In is simply the willingness and passion to make personal sacrifices for the wellbeing and collective good of Team Vertex. Each and every day ADS harnesses the tremendous power of its diverse workforce of over 2400 employees who are all committed to the philosophy of being “all in” to proudly achieve our mission of providing world class aerospace defense services which are second to none. The base of our strength clearly comes from the diversity of our people and we focus that strength by being inclusive, which separates us from our competitors. One Team One Fight! Go Vertex!
