FORTRUST Creates Veterans Group to Support Former Military Employees

DENVER, Nov. 01, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- FORTRUST, a leading data center and colocation services provider in Denver, Colorado, has announced the creation of a FORTRUST Veterans Group. The group will provide ongoing transitional support for veteran employees and their families. The group will also strive to give back by focusing on ways to help other veterans in the Colorado community.

Approximately 40% of the FORTRUST workforce are veterans from all branches of the military. FORTRUST strives to hire veterans who can provide the strong work ethic, attention to detail and technical and engineering expertise necessary to run a Tier III Gold data center.

“Given the depth of veterans in our workforce, we wanted to honor their services and provide them the necessary support to thrive in today’s workforce,” says Robert McClary, COO and 16-year Navy veteran.

The FORTRUST Veterans Group is led by Jay Leonard, a Security Specialist at FORTRUST and a 4-year veteran of the Army. “The transition from active duty to civilian life can be difficult,” says Leonard. “We want to provide support to our veteran employees, and help them thrive in their civilian careers.”

The FORTRUST Veterans Group will bring in speakers and provide training to support the wants and needs of the group, says Leonard. Group members will be seeking out volunteer opportunities and ways to give back.
