Brandt Rousseaux, Vice President of FDM North America and himself a retired US Coast Guard Commander, commented: "I am thrilled to see FDM recognized as a 2014 Best for Vets Employer. Veterans made up 22% of our 2013 new hires, and the FDM Veterans Initiative continues to grow on these successes into 2014. Our former military employees bring incredibly valuable talent and experience to our business. It is truly a testament to FDM's commitment to veterans that we have been selected for this honor."
