Vertical Holdings President And CEO Selected For Honorary Commanders Program

As part of an effort to build relationships between civic leaders and active duty military commanders, Herbert L. Drayton III was inducted on March 25, 2015 making him Joint Base Charleston’s newest Honorary Commander.

Vertical Holdings LLC President and CEO Herbert L. Drayton III was recently nominated and selected for Joint Base Charleston's Honorary Commanders program. A civic outreach initiative, the Honorary Commanders program allows community partners to gain awareness of the military mission and allows their military counterparts to learn more about the communities surrounding the base.

The program strengthens relationships within the community by matching civic leaders with active-duty military commanders. Individuals are selected from throughout the Lowcountry and from various professions ranging from school administrators to business owners to religious leaders and elected officials.

“Most of our Honorary Commanders were selected as a result of recommendations from former Honorary Commanders or someone in the community that is in good standing with the military,” commented James Bowman, Chief of External Operations at the Joint Base Charleston Public Affairs office. “In Mr. Drayton's case his name was sent to Public Affairs from an Advisory Council member, in this case a former Honorary Commander. We rely heavily on the Advisory Council; they know what Joint Base Charleston needs and understand the Honorary Commanders program. Also, Mr. Drayton's resume was very impressive as it detailed his experience as an executive manager, entrepreneur, public speaker and management mentor. These are qualities that Joint Base Charleston will benefit from. He is also connected to more than 1,000 businesses in a wide range of disciplines, which is very beneficial for service members leaving the military.”
