Stagwell (STGW)'s MMI Agency and Constellation Partner with VetsinTech to Support Veteran Career Transitions in the Creative Technology Industry
Maggie Malek, CEO of MMI Agency and Army Veteran, and Justin Lewis, Chairman of Constellation Network and Marine Corps Veteran, Publish Open Letters for Veterans Day
NEW YORK, Nov. 10, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Stagwell (NASDAQ: STGW), the challenger network built to transform marketing, announced its support for VetsinTech (ViT), the leading national non-profit dedicated to supporting veterans through tech-based programs and opportunities in education, employment, and entrepreneurship. The partnership is led by Stagwell's Maggie Malek, CEO of MMI Agency and Army veteran, and Justin Lewis, Constellation chairman and Marine Corps veteran.
MMI, Constellation and Stagwell are also supporting ViT's 8th Annual Veterans Day Gala on Friday, Nov. 11, in San Francisco. The Gala is held each fall to fund educational scholarships for veterans and military spouses and to celebrate Veterans Day.
"Veteran leaders like Maggie and Justin bring invaluable experiences and skillsets to our business and we're grateful to have their leadership," said Sagwell Chairman and CEO Mark Penn. "We're excited to partner with VetsinTech and open up new avenues to support veterans in building fruitful, rewarding careers within the technology ecosystem."
Malek and Lewis have each published an open letter in recognition of Veterans Day to inspire veterans to think bigger about their futures and to encourage the creative technology community to hire veterans.
Malek, whose grandfather and uncle served in WWII and Vietnam, writes about the impact of their stories, and being fueled to be part of something bigger following a death in the family and the events of 9/11. After carving out her place as a top-performing female in the Army, she details her path of floating in and out of different jobs, maintaining internships while attending school, eventually leading to a place where she could blend her love for writing with her love of people: MMI Agency. A decade later, she became MMI's CEO. Read Maggie's full letter on LinkedIn here.
