Chamber partners with Mission Wisconsin to attract military talent to Greater Green Bay

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.”
