Redhorse founder and CEO David Inmon was named Best Entrepreneur by the San Diego Business Journal for the 2018 Veteran and Military Entrepreneur Awards in the large company category. For the second year, the SDBJ has recognized military veterans in the San Diego community who have had significant career achievements in the last year with a strong record of innovation, outstanding performance and community involvement.
David is a Bronze Star recipient with more than 30 years of military leadership experience, including 10 months in a combat zone. Upon his return from active duty in Iraq, he founded Redhorse in 2008. Today, Redhorse stands at nearly 400 employees nationwide and is one of the largest privately held government contractors in the San Diego region.
Under David’s leadership, Redhorse saw an incredible 40% growth in revenue and a 13% growth in number of employees last year – a strong position to move into its 10th anniversary year in 2018. In just 10 years, the company has grown to have operations in 32 states and two international locations.
David is also an active member of the San Diego community. In addition to encouraging company-wide community service initiatives, he serves on the Board of Directors for the National Defense Industrial Association (NDIA) in San Diego, and as a member of the San Diego Military Advisory Council (SDMAC).
David brings into business the integrity and honesty one would expect to find in a Marine Corps Colonel. He sets the standard of conduct by treating everyone with dignity and respect. Even after his retirement from the Marine Corps, through Redhorse’s critical work and an office culture that values military- and veteran-focused philanthropy, David continues to support national security and the armed forces who defend it.
