“We are honored to be named to the list of America’s Best Employers for Veterans,” said Brenna Preisser, President - Business Acceleration & Chief People and Strategy Officer. “This award recognizes our commitment to the veteran community as part of our broader diversity, equality and inclusion efforts.
