Brian Arrington, USAF (ret), M.S. is CEO/Founder of VETS2INDUSTRY LLC and VETS2INDUSTRY Foundation Inc. After his retirement, Brian learned there were over 45,000 Veteran Service Organizations nationwide that provided free services and support to U.S. military families. However, He discovered a communication gap existed between these service resources and the heroes who needed them. With this newly discovered knowledge, Brian vowed to bridge the gap and ensure the success of every veteran and their families by creating a free single-site repository of every free Veteran Service Organization to include providing mentorship and information services to each knowledge-seeker. Since the library’s creation in 2019, Brian has led Vets2Industry’s growth by reaching 7,000 veterans and military spouses with over 20,000 page-views and he continues to supply employment opportunity success with the volunteer force he leads. Vets2Industry also provides free career tool webinars and a platform for recruiters to connect with veterans and their dependents. Learn more at https://www.vets2industry.org
