SunTrust Renews Partnership With U.S. Chamber's Hiring Our Heroes Program

Stocks in this article: STI

ATLANTA, Nov. 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- SunTrust Banks, Inc. (NYSE: STI) today announced the renewal of its partnership and $100,000 investment in the U.S. Chamber of Commerce's Hiring Our Heroes program.  Last year, the company began its association with the nationwide initiative that helps veterans, transitioning service members, and military spouses find meaningful employment through the Chamber's network of state and local affiliates and other strategic partners from the public, private, and non-profit sectors. 

"Military men and women are well-trained, disciplined in their work ethic and know how to contribute to achieving a common goal as part of a team – all traits and skills that we value," said William H. Rogers, Jr., chairman and chief executive officer of SunTrust. "As SunTrust is focused on promoting financial well-being among our communities, we are pleased to renew our participation in the Hiring Our Heroes program to help service members and their families."   

SunTrust's donation will help fund hiring fairs throughout the Southeast and Mid-Atlantic regions.  Since the program's launch in March 2011, Hiring Our Heroes has hosted more than 640 hiring fairs across the country, resulting in more than 20,200 veterans and military spouses securing employment.

"We are delighted that SunTrust is once again stepping up as a leader in the financial industry to hire heroes," said Eric Eversole, executive director of Hiring Our Heroes, a program of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation.  "We look forward to continuing our important work with SunTrust to connect veterans, transitioning service members, and military spouses with meaningful employment opportunities."

An event hosted exclusively by SunTrust with Hiring Our Heroes is scheduled for Thursday, November 14 at the Atlanta Marriott Marquis, located at 265 Peachtree Street.

Consistent with its commitment to financial education, SunTrust also has sponsored CredAbility, one of the leading nonprofit credit counseling and education agencies in the U.S., to make their services available at 15 of these job fairs, including the upcoming date for Atlanta.
