On Saturday, November 11, Cushman & Wakefield will participate in the United War Councils’ 98thAnnual New York City Veterans Day Parade to honor our veterans nationwide. As Cushman & Wakefield continues its mission to support and hire veterans throughout the country, the firm is proud to sponsor and participate in the iconic parade.
Cushman & Wakefield is steadfast in its commitment to past and current members of the military and has implemented expansive recruiting efforts and support programs for veterans throughout the firm. The firm works with veterans to find careers that fit with their previous military experience and aligns with their interests, talents and professional skills. Along with recruitment, the firm has instilled mentorship programs to assist newly hired veterans in their adjustment to civilian life as a whole, from setting up their 401k to finding the local grocery store.
“Freedom does not come for free; it comes with the sacrifice and service of all who volunteer to protect our freedoms, and our firm does not take this for granted,” said Bruce Mosler, Chairman of Global Brokerage & Veterans Initiatives for Cushman & Wakefield. “Our firm proactively hires veterans to hold positions at all levels as we believe the military builds highly skilled and talented leaders, and Cushman & Wakefield always needs great leaders.”
”Cushman & Wakefield works to find fulfilling careers across various service lines and geographies for veterans that directly relates to their skills and talents,” said Frank Stanley, LTC, US Army, Manager of Veteran Initiaves and Programs for Cushman & Wakefield. “As a veteran, I am proud to work with our veteran hires to provide a community that supports their distinct needs, in a culture that celebrates their contributions in the military. We are proud to participate in the parade not only to honor our colleagues, but to honor all veterans nationwide.”
The parade begins Saturday, November 11 at 11:00AM on at 26th Street and Fifth Avenue in Manhattan. With hundreds of thousands of spectators lining the street, veterans, active military personnel, entertainment, and supporters will march up Fifth Avenue up to 52nd Street.
