Guam - The Guam Chamber of Commerce heard from President and CEO of DZSP 21 Wayne Cornell during its membership meeting today at the Marriott Resort in Tumon.  Cornell not only spoke about the company, but emphasized DZSP's partnership with the military and the Guam community as a whole.

He says his company employs over 800 people and continues to pay millions of dollars in taxes. He says this is just several ways DZSP contributes to the island, noting, "Our support for the military is base operations, so we take care of the utility systems on base and we take care of Apra Harbor, we deliver ordnance to the ships and we now provide material management and transportation assets to the Air Force."

Cornell says in 2006, DZSP was a $48 million company. Last year, the company grew to be worth $85 million. He says his goal is for the company to become the Navy's contractor of choice.
