Landing In and Loving the Bid and Proposal Business

Darren DurkeeAt APMP’s popular Ignite session, Darren Durkee, CF APMP, Vice President of Business Development, will present his experience joining the bid and proposal industry! Over the past 38 years, Darren has gone from career Air Force officer, to business executive, and now into the heart of the bid and proposal business. Following a fulfilling two-plus decades of military aviation and Pentagon assignments, he worked his way up a science and engineering firm conducting R&D for countering weapons of mass destruction. Managing a large unit with wide ranging responsibilities to include capture and winning of proposals, he learned to appreciate the value of the bid and proposal skillset. B&P professionals help sustain the lifeblood of the companies you work for and support. Darren recently retired from his business executive job and has jumped head-first in this business working for a company consisting of hundreds of B&P professionals.  B&P professionals are critical in making their organizations more competitive across all industries, from health care to national defense to infrastructure….and the list goes on and on.  They really do make a difference. As we all know, it can also be an adrenaline rush when you are in the throes of an important proposal! (And, aren’t they all important?). Over the years, Darren has been on source section committees, involved in developing numerous proposals, and participated in various color teams. He has recently become APMP Foundation-Level certified and is excited to be your new colleague in this important and dynamic profession!

We’re looking forward to seeing you at APMP BPC Denver! Did we mention our proposal training is now free?
