Service King Attends Inaugural Veterans Initiative Summit
Oct. 12, 2015—Service King Collision Repair Centers participated in the inaugural Veterans Initiative Summit in Washington, D.C., on Oct. 7-8.
The two-day event, hosted by Blackstone, The Carlyle Group, KKR and TPG, promoted the hiring of American veterans across private equity housing companies. Service King participated in the midst of its own Mission 2 Hire Initiative.
“Hiring veterans is not only the right thing to do, but we believe it makes our entire organization better,” said Chris Abraham, Service King CEO. “The Veterans Initiative Summit is a critical step forward to promoting the very real asset that veterans are to any organization. At Service King, we feel those skillsets fit particularly well within the collision repair industry. Our Mission 2 Hire initiative was born to promote that connection to veterans while at the same time providing valuable growth opportunities for heroes and their families.”
Service King’s Mission 2 Hire initiative has resulted in the hiring of over 40 military veterans since its launch in May. Veterans who are interested in career opportunities with Service King are encouraged to learn more about Mission 2 Hire by visiting the organization’s website.
The Veterans Initiative Summit featured speeches from First Lady Michelle Obama, Senator John McCain and others.
