The fundraising event was held to assist veterans transitioning from military duty into the energy industry. The proceeds from the event go toward YPE Pittsburgh initiatives for returning veterans to secure careers in the energy field.
Conway, who has initiated the Fortis 4 Vets hiring program in his company, currently has 10% of his staff as former or current military personnel. He told the audience, “At Fortis we believe that hiring a Veteran, Guardsman or a Reservist just makes good business sense. We appreciate these men and women for the leadership, professionalism, dedication and pride they bring to our company. They possess a particular degree of unique talents and expertise and it is in recognition of these talents that we have established the Fortis 4 Vets hiring initiative.”
Fortis employee Joe Wasek was one of seven veterans recognized for his service to the United States. “We are proud of Joe and pleased to be able to formally honor his commitment to Fortis and to our Country,” Conway told the audience. “Fortis Energy Services values the sacrifices and devotion these men have shown in defending and protecting us at home and abroad.”
Conway spoke of that special devotion to Country when he told the audience, “We call that unique kind of patriotism ‘Americanism’. We show Americanism when we take pride in our nation's past achievements and commit ourselves to America's future ambitions. It is a vital time for individuals and companies in the energy industry to honor and support our veterans who have exercised Americanism at its best.”
