Roberts & Ryan Investments rang the opening bell at the New York Stock Exchange to open July 5th’s trading day in honor of Independence Day. “We do debt, equity, and equity trading transactions for corporate money managers and we take a large portion of that and donate it back to support the veteran community that has done so much for our great country,” said Brian Rathjen, president of the company that is majority-owned by military service veterans.
He also espoused the importance of training military members to succeed in the workplace at the end of their service. “These men and women are ready to go. And I think it just takes a little while to transition from the uniform to the civilian world.”
Veterans are mission driven. Because of their ability to adapt, analyze and overcome, Veterans are strong employees, partners and CEOs.
Thank you NYSE for supporting our social mission – helping Veterans in general wellness, mental health, and career transition as well as closing the opportunity gap for young adults in underserved communities through donations and volunteerism.
