NEW YORK, March 31, 2015 /3BL Media/ -- Deloitte LLP was recognized, alongside four other leading organizations, as a 5 Star Award recipient at the 2015 America's Future Series 5 Star Award Ceremony and Military Symposium. The award honors organizations that provide extraordinary support to our military and veterans, and Cathy Engelbert, CEO of Deloitte LLP, will be accepting the recognition on behalf of the professional services organization. The event took place on Saturday, March 28, 2015 at the Hotel Intercontinental in Dallas.

"I am honored to accept this award on behalf of Deloitte," said Cathy Engelbert. "We are proud to support transitioning service members and veterans – people who dedicate their lives to make America a stronger, safer, better place. We are committed to addressing the core needs of these phenomenal men and women, and helping them unlock their full power and potential as they join the civilian workforce."

The event was hosted by Rick Edwards, executive vice president of Missiles and Fire Control at Lockheed Martin, and featured national radio and television personality Glenn Beck as its keynote speaker. Other CEOs and companies being recognized at the event include Brian Philips, president and CEO of FedEx Office; Tom Greco, CEO of Frito-Lay North AmericaThomas Falk, chairman and CEO of Kimberly-Clark; and John Bardis, former chairman and chief executive officer of MedAssets and founder of Hire Heroes USA, accepted the award on behalf of MedAssets. 

"We are honored to recognize Deloitte for its extraordinary support of our military by presenting its CEO, Cathy Engelbert, with the AFS 5 Star Award on March 28. Along with its strong military philanthropic contributions, we greatly appreciate Deloitte's continued commitment to hiring and developing veterans. Meaningful employment is one of the most important things those who have served need to assimilate into civilian life," said David Hamilton, founder of the America's Future Series.

Deloitte has been a long-standing supporter of the military and veterans. In 2013, the organization set a goal to double its veteran hires by June 2016 as part of Deloitte's commitment to The White House's Joining Forces initiative. In addition, the organization launched the Career Opportunity Redefinition & Exploration (CORE) Leadership Program in 2013 at Deloitte University, in Westlake, Texas. The program helps transitioning service members and veterans translate their skills, knowledge, and experiences into a business environment.
