July 25, 2022 – Today is National Hire a Veteran Day! Drexel Hamilton, Wall Street’s only 100% military veteran-owned and operated investment bank, is singularly committed to mentoring and hiring veterans for a meaningful career in Finance. The proof is in the pudding. 10 of our 11 new hires in 2022 to date are military veterans and 50% are veterans from underserved or underrepresented communities.

On a day that serves to underscore the many transferable skills that veterans bring to the civilian sector, we are thrilled to introduce four shining examples in Drexel Hamilton’s newest military veteran hires:
