Military Veterans Network

"As a Veteran of the United States Marine Corps, I understand the value a veteran can add to any workplace. I take pride in seeing the commitment BBH has made in hiring and supporting veterans who have or continue to serve in the Armed Forces. Through my involvement in the BBH Military Veterans Network and other affinity groups I’ve seen firsthand the ways BBH is invested in employees and the community."

– Travis Partington, Military Veterans Network Co-Chair

The Military Veterans Network supports active duty and reserve military personnel, veterans and their families through mentoring, professional development, and community outreach. We are committed to raising awareness for the complex issues Veterans face when transitioning into civilian employment. We further BBH’s commitment to recruit, integrate, progress, and retain veterans by providing employees with valuable resources to advance their careers. We serve as advisors inside and outside the Firm to educate potential employers about veterans’ unique skills and experiences, and support talent development by interviewing candidates with military experience.
