First Data Salutes Those Who Serve

First Data hosted a banquet remembering the fallen on January 27th as part of their veteran’s appreciation initiative.

First Data has increased the number of veteran and spouses hires by more than 10% of all hires in 2014. They continue to grow that number by reaching out to the talented men and women that transition out of the service.  The veterans that work at First Data are natural innovators and leaders that provide solutions and special ways to overcome the company’s goals.

First Data looks for leaders and individual’s creative thinking of the military. First Data has a special commitment to our veterans with partnerships with Wound Warriors Foundation as well as creating a fellowship in honor of veterans. With over 23 million customers and the responsibility of processing over 2,000 transactions every second, First Data gives preference to United States veterans, whether its how they provide service through “clover” or many other ways. Giving back is essential at First Data and there is a large volunteer base among First Data and the community.

Barry McCarthy President of Financial Services at First Data with closing remarks said, “There is no freedom without sacrifice, some of us can serve in the military while some work for employers such as First Data, we all have a role to do and we all have to do our part. All of us here at first Data are committed to do that. May we never be unworthy of our military members and their families sacrifices”.
