About 250,000 veterans transition out of military service every year, ready for their next opportunity. Greater Green Bay wants to position itself as a viable destination for these veterans – and that’s just what it will do through its partnership with Mission-Wisconsin.
This new partnership is an outgrowth of the Greater Green Bay Economic Development Strategic Plan’s initiative to attract and retain in the area. Mission-Wisconsin is a veteran-owned business that provides transition assistance to the military community – including connecting vetrepreneurs and attracting transitioning military and their families to Greater Green Bay. “We want to be inclusive in providing a receptive community for these transitioning veterans,” said Eric Vanden Heuvel, vice president of talent & education at the Chamber. “Steve Janke of Mission-Wisconsin is an industry expert who can help to market Greater Green Bay to veterans from all around the country. In doing so, we can build a solid pipeline of talent to our community, our companies and the municipalities we serve.”
