“We are committed to not just hiring veterans and members of the military, but ensuring that we are setting them up for success in our community,” said Kristen Reese, Bozzuto’s Vice President of Talent Management. “Our veterans employee resource group works to ensure that our education programs, onboarding process and training materials, give veterans, military spouses and members of the military all of the necessary materials to succeed in a career at Bozzuto.”
