LOVELAND, Ohio - Aug. 19, 2014 - PRLog -- RecruitMilitary, the nation’s leading military-to-civilian recruitment firm, will honor 15 men and women as “Veteran Hiring Leaders Who Make a Difference” in the September/October 2014 issue of Search & Employ®, its print and digital magazine. All of the honorees have multiple years of experience recruiting veterans and share a passion for veteran hiring and service. Many of them are veterans themselves, while others are members of military families.

The 15 are the first group chosen by RecruitMilitary; the company plans to recognize more hiring leaders in later issues of Search & Employ®. A panel of four veteran hiring experts at RecruitMilitary nominated the 15 honorees.

Peter Gudmundsson, CEO of RecruitMilitary and a former officer in the United States Marine Corps, said, “We seek to draw attention to those individuals who get beyond ‘Rose Garden Recruiting’ target announcements, and really accomplish the frontline work of making sure that America’s leading companies take advantage of the opportunity to hire high-quality veteran talent. In a nation that generates a lot of noise about veterans and employment, these leaders propel their organizations to the front by actually hiring America’s best.”

Gudmundsson hopes that honoring these leaders will spur more veteran hiring and spread their lessons learned to others.He noted that “what drives our firm is that today’s veterans constitute a great treasure of talent and skill. It is in the commercial interest of employers to attract, hire, appreciate, and retain that talent. Fundamentally, veterans represent an opportunity for companies, rather than an obligation or a destination for charity. Furthermore, we know that readers of Search & Employ® will understand and appreciate what our honorees have been doing. Their success helps all of us.”

RecruitMilitary distributes 58,000 print copies of the magazine bimonthly to military installations globally, National Guard and reserve units, men and women who attend its all-veteran job fairs, and veteran hiring leaders. The digital magazine is linked to three RecruitMilitary newsletters and the website at
