How Michelin Attracts New Talent with Military Backgrounds
“We find that military experience develops a lot of core skills, particularly leadership, and we certainly appreciate those skills and the veterans we have in our company.”
An interesting quote from Pete Selleck, who this month celebrates his three-year anniversary as Chairman and President of Michelin North America Inc.
Selleck’s respect for veterans comes as no surprise, considering he earned a Bachelor of Science at the U.S. Military Academy, spent five years in the U.S. Army as a platoon leader and a company commander, and served more than 20 years in the Army Reserves.
Chris Sweeney writes in the following article for Rubber News (a web publication for those in the rubber industry) about the efforts to which Michelin, one of the world’s major tire manufacturers, goes to recruit military veterans for jobs.
