Today is National Hire a Veteran Day - a day set aside to remind employers that veterans are highly trained and highly qualified, with ideal skills for numerous trades.
Here at Atlantic Diving Supply, those aren’t just words. They’re a way of doing business. We know veterans have walked miles in our customers’ shoes, and their insight and skills are invaluable.
Leadership. Teamwork. Performance Under Pressure. Respect for Process. Integrity. Triumph over Adversity. The list goes on.
And as the saying goes around here, one of the best ways to honor a veteran is to hire one.
Today, more than one-third of our staff is either a veteran or a veteran’s spouse, another important way ADS supports our local military families. In fact, veterans and their spouses are some of ADS’ top performing employees.
"At ADS, veterans find a place where their military experience is truly valued, and it keeps them connected to the military they loved serving. For a company like ours, the benefits of hiring veterans are obvious. We simply couldn’t do what we do without them."
Jason Wallace, ADS CEO
They’re people like our Sr. Business Development Manager Levi J. Wilson, a retired marine sergeant major who spent nearly 30 years in the Marine Corps., and then 20 years here at ADS. Or, Ryan Angold, our Senior Vice President of Market Sales. A former SEAL, Ryan found a rewarding second career with us after a freak accident forced an early end to his brave military career.
Like the more than 100 other veterans working at ADS, their military experience equips them with great skills that they apply everyday.
