On Wednesday, April 20, 2016, ACP’s Founder and Chairman Sid Goodfriend presented the ACP Award for Excellence in Veteran Engagement and Integration to the Chairman and CEO of UPS, David Abney, at the UPS World Headquarters in Atlanta, GA. This award is given to a company and its Chief Executive Officer who lead by example in the recruiting, hiring, training and retention of returning U.S. veterans so they may develop lasting careers. ACP is not only appreciative of UPS' continued support as a Participating Institution, but also the company's active engagement in the veteran community.
Following the award presentation, ACP Protégés and Mentors gathered at UPS for a panel discussion and networking event. The event began with guest speaker Grant McGarry who is an ACP Protégé and author of A Night in the Pech Valley. His remarks were followed by a panel discussion featuring senior professionals from AT&T, Coca-Cola, GE, Hire Heroes USA, McKesson and UPS.
ACP would like to thank Lloyd Knight for planning a wonderful evening.
