“We’re very proud of this recognition and for the incredible work ethic and new ideas we get from our veteran employees every day,” said Brad Lull, Executive Vice President of Central Operations at Sunbelt Rentals.

Former veterans who are now full-time employees at Sunbelt Rentals appreciate the recognition and what’s been done to make it happen. Our branch in Jacksonville, N.C. — located just a few miles from Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune — has been particularly successful with hires from the military. Their current staff includes six Marine Corps and Army veterans with nearly a century of combined military experience.

“This location sets a great example of how contributions from veterans strengthen our organization,” said Carson Hagar, Director of Recruitment Services at Sunbelt Rentals. “We continually strive to increase the scores and metrics used to designate this award. We’re proud of the progress that we’ve made, but there's so much more we can do.”
