The COMMIT Foundation is pleased to announce that Matt Eversmann has been named Co-Executive Director beginning in January 2014. Since his retirement from active duty in the US Army in 2008, Mr. Eversmann has worked in the healthcare industry. Most recently, he was the business development officer at Allegeant, a risk management company in Baltimore.
A career infantryman, Matt retired as a company First Sergeant after a 15-month deployment to Iraq. He served in both conventional and special operations units during his 20 years of active duty.
In his role as Co-Executive Director, Matt will assist Co-Founder Anne Meree Craig with strategy, execution, and implementation of programs to support transitioning veterans. He will also focus on fundraising and financial support for the foundation.
When asked about the new mission, Matt shared, "I am so pleased to have been considered for a role at The COMMIT Foundation. The space between the end of service and beginning of employment has been terribly unfulfilled. This opportunity to support the warfighter in their continued mission is so important and I look forward to helping COMMIT take their operations to the next level." The end of the year is proving to be an exciting one for COMMIT. We received word that both JP Morgan Chase and The Rumsfeld Foundation have provided grants to support our endeavors. In addition, COMMIT will soon unveil extremely exciting partnerships and workshops for 2014. Stay tuned for details and please don't forget to Save the Date for our March 1, 2014, Gala in Baltimore.
