We [The Sterling Group] specialize in helping veterans translate the unique skills and leadership experience they acquire through military service into resumes that make them marketable to employers.
New York, NY (PRWEB) November 13, 2012
Point Capital Partners LLC and The Sterling Group LLC announced a strategic partnership to create veterans employment opportunities. This initiative is aimed at solving the problem of veteran unemployment as millions of Iraq and Afghanistan war veterans finish their service and begin to look for meaningful civilian employment.
Founded by West Point Graduates, both companies are designated “Veteran owned” businesses, which allows them to leverage their combined professional networks, diverse business expertise, and special network of service academy graduate and larger veteran networks.
“Every business leader I meet across the country tells me they need more talented leaders who understand the meaning of hard work, loyalty, and integrity,” says Rich Swift, managing partner of Point Capital LLC. “This partnership allows Point Capital Partners to connect these institutional investors, corporations, and small businesses with a powerful network that will provide them with exactly what they need: a vast network of available veterans and service academy graduates.”
Point Capital Partners LLC is a leading New Jersey based Merchant Bank. Through its large portfolio of diverse investments across Real Estate, the Energy Sector, and many small businesses, it runs into a large number of businesses that are searching for leadership talent. Point Capital Partners LLC’s mission is to effectively steward partner, client, and investor capital in an ethical, aligned and constructive manner. Point Capital Partners accomplishes its mission by creating, distributing, and managing alternative investment products that produce risk-adjusted absolute returns.
“Veteran unemployment, especially for Iraq and Afghanistan War Veterans, is a chronic problem in this country. As the military downsizes over the next few years, this problem will only get worse,” says James Duncan, the owner of The Sterling Group. “We specialize in helping veterans translate the unique skills and leadership experience they acquire through military service into resumes that make them marketable to employers. Our partnership with Point Capital Partners gives us a much larger network of employers to help provide more veterans with the right executive leadership opportunities.”
