Today is a special one at Victory Media.
Fifteen years ago, Victory Media’s co-founders Chris Hale, Rich McCormack and Scotty Shaw celebrated the first day working at a new company—their own. Their mission was simple: create vital, civilian-produced resources for the 250K+ people leaving the military each year, at no cost to service members or taxpayers. In doing so, they introduced these candidates to civilian employment, entrepreneurship and education opportunities. Where companies and schools didn’t recruit from the military, Chris, Rich and Scotty showed them why they should.
Today, we celebrate a rich, 15-year history of creating opportunity and advocacy for our veterans, military spouses, service members and now high school students looking to take that “next step.” What started as an idea in “Suite B” (“B” for the basement in Chris’ house!) has become a thriving, growing business. We couldn’t be more proud of our employees, and thank our clients and business associates who have supported us along the way doing better for veterans and young professionals looking to make a difference in their own lives and careers—and ours.
