  • New York, NY (1888PressRelease) March 31, 2015 - Tansill will be leading the expansion of FDM's initiative to support military veterans in their transition to meaningful civilian careers. He brings to the role a wealth of experience in both military and civilian working environments, with a proven background of strategic planning and operational development.

    Speaking of his appointment to the role, Tansill commented: "I look forward to this exceptional opportunity to expand the program for veterans and to continuing to promote FDM Group nationally as a veteran-friendly employer."

    Tansill retired from the U.S. Marine Corps as a Lieutenant Colonel after having served in both active duty and reserve service for 28 years. His scope of work ranged from service during Desert Shield/Storm to overseeing corporate relations for ESGR (Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve).

    Prior to joining FDM, Tansill worked on the trade floors at AMEX and NYSE and later the fixed income desk at Cantor Fitzgerald. More recently, he worked as the Chief of Staff at the Coast Guard Headquarters, specifically within their office of Counterterrorism, Port Security, and DoD Policy. Tansill holds his degree in Communications from Seton Hall University, with a focus on Business Management and Public Relations. He was also a member of the Seton Hall basketball team in its entrance into the Big East Conference.

    Following recognition as a CivilianJobs.com MVE (Most Valuable Employer) for Military and a Military Times Best for Vets Employer, FDM believes that this most recent leadership appointment will strengthen its position as a committed veteran employer. Tansill's unique blend of military and civilian career experience makes him perfectly suited to help strategically grow FDM's Veteran Initiatives. His insight will help in continuing to develop a seamless and supporting transitional environment for veterans joining FDM's Careers Program.

    FDM Group CEO, Rod Flavell, said, "I am delighted with the appointment of John Tansill as FDM's Head of Veteran Initiatives. FDM is committed to helping veterans make the transition from the military to the commercial world, and John brings to the position the drive and strategic mindset that we need to continue growing this program's success."
