variety of fields, including the leadership of TEKsystems itself.
“Supporting veterans, service members, and their spouses is a priority
for TEKsystems. We believe that companies should make the extra effort
to help servicemen and women transition to rewarding careers that
emphasize their exceptional grit, discipline and work ethic,” says Jay
Alvather, President TEKsystems. “The Pat Tillman Foundation has created
a tremendous network and community for the military, and we’re proud to
continue our partnership with them for the fifth year.”
TEKsystems is also sponsoring runner Sid Busch, a 72-year-old Navy
veteran who dedicates his life to honoring the memory of fallen heroes.
Sid has run over 200 marathons with the mission of ensuring that men and
women who gave their lives in service are not forgotten.
“As a veteran myself, I understand the value of resources that help
active duty military successfully transition to careers in the private
sector and civilian life,” says Mike Powers, veterans and disabilities
manager, TEKsystems. “At TEKsystems we strive to be that dedicated
resource by honing in on an individual’s unique and translatable skills
and aiding their transition into a rewarding career with purpose.”
