Somsak Chivavibul, CFO for Wilmington-based Navient, will join leaders from more than 20 companies in ringing the opening bell at Nasdaq this Friday to celebrate Veterans Day.
The opening bell ceremony is an effort to recognize publicly traded companies that have pledged to make hiring veterans a commitment this year.
Navient employees will also march in the Veterans Day Parade in New York City.
“On Veterans Day, it’s important to show our deep appreciation for those who have worn the uniform and those who continue to serve the country on our behalf,” said Chivavibul. “More importantly, Navient remains committed to our pledge to hire and support veterans every day.”
Navient actively recruits veterans, offers a veteran career site that features a skill matcher to help applicants find jobs, and offers activated members of the Reserves and National Guard 12 months of the difference between the employee’s Navient pay and military pay plus health care and other benefits during deployment.
