Vanquish Worldwide, a Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business, is pleased to announce Founder, President and CEO Eric W. Barton received his doctorate degree in business administration with a specialization in leadership from Walden University on July 16, 2016, building upon his dream of becoming a well-rounded entrepreneur and offering practical experience to other growing small businesses around the country.
Dr. Barton’s dissertation, “Perceived Best Practices of Small Business Executives in War Zones,” builds upon Barton’s practical experience overseas single-handedly helping his small businesses and startups, including Vanquish Worldwide, become and maintain profitability for over a decade.
“A goal of mine since childhood was to earn the title Dr., the highest form of scholarship. Over the past 7+ years, my family and friends patiently supported my aspirations,” Barton said. “Thank you for your support and friendship over the years.”
