Finding Top Talent

Organizations need proven leaders who can handle a fierce and competitive environment. Direct Recruiters, Inc. (DRI) candidates with both military and corporate experience are just the answer. Former Military Officers who have transitioned from military life to a civilian career all say they drew numerous lessons in leadership from their years in uniform.

Many past and current top executives including those at Verizon, Procter & Gamble, Cleveland Clinic, GM, GE, USAA and many more, have military backgrounds that enable them to make those difficult decisions and shape the corporate landscape.

High ranking executives who are former Military Officers:

  • Bring exceptional leadership skills
  • Offer powerful experience (military and industry)
  • Are collaborative team contributors
  • Foster camaraderie and loyalty

The United States Military is the premier source for competent, committed, professional leaders of character. The individuals we represent have been ranked among the best in their military peer groups.
