SUMMIT AVIATION RECEIVES SECOND CONSECUTIVE HIRE VETS AWARD

Summit Aviation, a Greenwich AeroGroup Company, announced that it has received the HIRE Vets Platinum Medallion Award from the U.S. Department of Labor for 2020 for its efforts to recruit, employ and retain the nation’s veterans.

This marks the second consecutive year Summit Aviation has received the prestigious award. The Honoring Investments in Recruiting and Employing American Military Veterans (HIRE Vets) Award Medallion Program implements the requirements of the HIRE Vets Act of 2017 (Public Law 115-31), which President Donald J. Trump signed in May 2017. It is the only veteran hiring award given at the federal level, and recognizes a company or organization’s commitment to veteran hiring, retention and professional development.

“Our veteran employees exemplify unique leadership, technical expertise and problem-solving abilities – those are highly valued skillsets in any workplace – particularly ours,” said Ralph Kunz, vice president and general manager for Summit Aviation. “We’re humbled to not only work alongside our veterans each day, but also to receive positive recognition for the supportive culture of our environment.”

Summit Aviation currently employs 75 veterans of the United States Armed Forces.
